Thank you, thank you, thank you. If we all could use common sense and not rely on what other people have written or deem the final word, life would be much more satisfying for us all.
Has anyone ever wondered WHY someone would leave their home family and friends to go to another country where life is unfamiliar and try to find work even if it's illegal to support themselves? To me it's the small minded who think a fence is going to make a difference. These people can't find work in their own country to support their families so they risk everything to come here so they can survive. Imagine what it would take for you to make that decision to leave your country so your wife and children can have food and a home. You would have to be awfully desperate and willing to risk it all to do that and it would take great bravery on your part. Of course I agree that illegal criminals should be deported but why aren't we looking at the bigger economic issue Mexico is dealing with. We have so many smart and innovative leaders in this country who could partner with Mexico to develop an economic environment that could benefit everyone. Open the borders and allow a back and forth flow like we have with Canada and let people find work, pay their taxes and not be the scapegoat for whatever we think is the cause of our struggles.
