Girls are paying to go across the border and thence made through are picked up by the people they thought were helping and used for sex and beaten. All this to have a better life, when what they really get is lied to and used. What if this was your daughter, mother, sister aunt, friend going to another country and used this way.
No, we should offer immigrants the same offer the coyote's offer. They can have safe passage into the US for a Fee. and of course pay taxes and immigration fees going forward. Provided they pass an extensive background check.
No, just make it easier for immigrants to come legally, such as making it cheaper to get citizenship. Also offering visas and make it easier for people who need to get out of poverty. Someone from a country will dictators and no money doesn't have the money and most likely the 8 months it takes to gain citizenship because they need out of their awful situation asap. Their situation doesn't make them less deserving of being a citizen.
This is not such a cut and dry issue. We are all foreigners to this land!! If a person is willing to go through the necessary ropes to be here legally...leave them be!! Let them follow the exact same laws as the rest of us. But it is also not okay to hold illegal immigrants in border camps where they are living a real nightmare!! Let us all have more compassion and integrity.
