I am very much in favor of strong borders, all of them. I am one of the “good, kind people” from here, but I can’t imagine how it must feel to live your life in the USA, seeing what the citizens can do and what they can have. I don’t want anyone to have to live looking over their shoulder, constantly being afraid their illegal status will be found out and they will be pulled out of whatever life they have made for themselves here.
I am in favor of helping people come into our country legally, to be able to get a job, live a life, come to be a citizen if that is what they want, and be able to throw their shoulders back and say, “I am an American citizen.”
The owners of the big farms and places where Hispanics or others in our communities are employed could make an effort to help their employees get legal status and also make an effort to not have their employees work long hours illegally because they can’t be in a union and be illegal.
This is the most generous country in the world. Once we get things secure, we could begin work on helping the countries where the violence is rampant to improve conditions for their citizens in their own countries. Safe zones have been suggested to be established in the home country, where the citizens are safe and still home. That is a win-win for all.
The drugs coming into our country certainly come in from all over the world. We have to do everything in the effort to stem the tide. Strengthening the southern border is a good start. There are so many issues involved in the drug epidemic. Strong borders can’t be a bad thing to help there.
I am in favor of anything that will help keep our wonderful country safe and secure to keep our beacon of light shining over the world where there is so much horror and injustice. My prayers go up.
