It is a tough issue. On the one hand we have every right to protect our borders, our nation, our people, etc., and yet on the other hand is the humanitarian issue. I do believe things are worse in Mexico than in the US, but is that our responsibility to fix? I don't think so. But no matter how we feel about it, there is no denying that the legal and illegal immigration presence does affect our economy, and our humanity. I often don't know where I stand on this issue.
