My heart really goes out to those children from Central America that are flooding our country. I know conditions in their home country are deplorable. But these children and their families are being exploited by criminals who are profiting from this. They are convincing the families of these children that an amnesty law that was passed to allow children who came here before 2007 to remain also applies to their children. These children are being used by everyone either to make a profit or to make a point. I agree that we really cannot take in any more illegal immigrants as our Southern border states are already stressed by the constant barrage of people “trying to escape to a better place” and what is happening is the problems follow them...the drug wars, escalated gang related violence, human trafficking, illiteracy are among some of the things that have greatly multiplied here over the last decade and shows no signs of abating.
Out here is is becoming necessary to learn several dialects of the type of Spanish spoken in Mexico, Central and South America as well as the dialects from other Hispanic countries. Along with these I find an increase in Thai, Laos, Korean, Chinese, and several of the dialects spoken in India, as most are refusing to learn English. I've also noticed that certain areas in the cities and towns have suffered a great decline in real estate value.
We need to unite across this country and call for our borders and laws to be enforced as the problem is not going to stay here, it will spread and drown all of us.
Pallbearers carry a coffin towards a hearse during a ceremony to mark the return of the first bodies, of passengers and crew killed in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, from Ukraine at Eindhoven military air base, the Netherlands, Wednesday, July 23, 2014. After being removed from the planes, the bodies are to be taken in a convoy of hearses to a military barracks in the central city of Hilversum, where forensic experts will begin the painstaking task of identifying the bodies and returning them to their loved ones.
