Immigration–A human concern
Despite the current rhetoric, the flow of millions of illegal workers to this country has not yet created an economic crisis, a political crisis or a national security crisis. It has, however, created a moral crisis. Right now, millions are suffering, and that is not a status quo we should settle for. Every summer, in Texas and other border states, migrants from Latin America die horrible deaths. While crossing barren lands, they fall victim to dehydration or fatigue. They suffocate in the backs of packed trailers and railroad cars. Yet, even in the face of life-threatening situations, they still come by the millions. Why? Two reasons: Their own countries encourage them to leave, and we encourage them to come. The motivation for allowing undocumented aliens into the united states ranges from corruption to compassion. Politictians turn a blind eye to the situation to avoid losing votes from the Hispanic community. We like to give people in need an opportunity to succed, and we know that the vast majority of those coming accross the border are decent, hard working people who are simply trying to learn valuable trades and improve their familie’s lives. Illegal immigration will continue to be a problem as long as the economic and political conditions in the United States are drastically better than those in neighboring countries. Long term good for the whole population will only when we reform our immigration laws to provide a clear pathway to citizenship, secure the borders and pressure failed goverments to eradicate corruption and pursue aggressive economic policies. Without reform, the human rights of millions will continue to be routinely violated. For the sake of those without a voice either in their home countries or in the United States we must pursue a humane policy of immigration and regional developement. This is the right path because it is right for people.
