We need Happy and Red

I just watched Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) and sidekick Red Connors (Edgar Buchanan) in a movie titled “Illegals Entry” from the 1940s-early 1950s. Hoppy and Red are sent by the Immigration Service to the Arizona-Mexico border to stop the “influx” of illegal aliens from Mexico. In the show, Hoppy and Red were able to arrest gang ring leaders and stop illegals. In the movie, Mexico was unable to help. Does this sound like today? Too bad Hoppy and Red aren’t on watch today!!
