After reading the hysterical ravings in the letter "Our Borders" and the forum posts, I decide to write.
You have to wonder how much of the talking points in this case more like propaganda filtered down from the anti-immigration group in the United States pass beyond our southern border and on to our southern hemisphere neighbors.
If you do not know what I am talking about, this is for the conservatives because they don't understand "liberal "and have said so often. Here are some examples.
Immigrants come here because they can get on welfare and get free medical attention and they are given our jobs. All the while they get to do nothing in the lap of luxury just like the poor in the U.S. while the rest of us hard working people are forced to support them.
The recent influx of immigrants at our southern border which has people upset and demanding military intervention is due to, according to 'experts', violent regimes in Central and South America.
So facing violence from your own government, poverty and lack of everything, no wonder the claim that immigrants have it so good would compel thousands to make the effort to immigrate to the U.S. and, yes, even illegally.
Let us not forget the most important claim from the anti immigration crowd, you are guaranteed automatic citizenship upon entering the U.S. of A. by the Democrats because they desperately need voters.
