Don’t blame those pouring across the border. They are escaping socialism, communism, and despotic rule. Who wouldn’t sprint through with our open border policy. To them it is worth the risk, and we can all sympathize or empathize with these people.
Blame your government (again) for playing politics with human lives (ours and theirs).
It is necessary to close the border until we have implemented a coherent immigration policy. Our current practices at the southern border imperil the lives of those running across, and those who live here.
Those who thought an open border policy would help rescue people, are wrong. It has done the opposite. Women are raped, children are sex-trafficked, and people are left to die in the wilderness of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico. Those who get across are treated as criminals, and drugs are muled into our country polluting all urban and rural communities.
The ugly and bitter solution is to shut immigration down until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration bill. To encourage this bill to move through Congress, all immigration, including immigration offices must be closed until Congress forms a mature and serious merit based policy. Only exceptions can be made for trade and freight to lessen negative impacts on business interests.
This action will take guts. It is time to stop the insanity so we can understand how to manage the crisis to a favorable end for all.
Look for LINDEMANN! Vote for LINDEMANN!
