All in All, It’s Just Another Brick in the Wall
Ok, maybe not a wall, but a 700 mile fence.
Our wonderful leader just signed a bill approving the construction of a 700 mile fence on the south border of the country.
I find this very ignorant, and extremely racist. True, many of the illegal immigrants are from Central and South America, but they are not the only ones. They come in via student visa, work visa (both by staying here after the visas expire) and across the northern border, but, we do not hear anything about building a fence with Canada, do we?
The utterly racist attitudes toward illegal immigrants is so disturbing it makes me ill. These people, obviously, need something we have to offer. We should welcome them with hospitility. We should work to make sure they come and/or begin working towards legal means to become citizens. We should not throw them back to the sharks they are trying to escape. Remeber we are all immigrants.
