    Brook : I have sat back and watched the immigration issue play out on the news, and would like to give my opinion. First if we all lived here in the America and if we had the same situation as they are in, in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador. Would we all not want the same from other Country's to help us ? This is only one part and the other is Are we not a GOD Loving Country and like most People here in America We believes in God. As we also have it on all of are currency (Money) Now from the Bible it Shows that the disciples received word from God to write his words in the Bible that we all read and believe in. Their is a part that says BRING the Children unto me. Now here we are they are Running here by the thousand's so what do we do ? do we send them back or do we do as God shows us in his word the Bible. I love my Country America the Beautiful and may God bless us all through these times of trials and that we all do the right thing with all of these Children of Gods. Here is another side of the equation We America have opened our Borders to other country's like Iran, Cuba, Iraq, Egypt Afghanistan a lot of people from the middle East . And what has happened they want to come over here and Blow up innocent people. And all these People from South America Just want to live in peace and WORK. Thank you for the ability to have a voice in this mater. Again thanks

    "And all these People from South America Just want to live in peace and WORK".

    American citizens just want to live and peace and WORK but crime from illegals, depressed wages and an ever growing job base being given to illegals prevents that.

    If your home countries are so bad then do something about it.

    We already help these sort of people in their home countries (Both officially as a government, but more importantly as citizen-created NGOs), but their own people don't want them because they represent to them what they represent to us: Uneducated masses who drain resources instead of contributing to them. There are people from all over this world who would like a piece of the American pie, and scores of human beings suffer from famine, warfare, and exploitation at every corner of civilization. Mexican and Central American immigrants are not unique in their claims of being refugees, and more importantly there are many locales far worse than the aforementioned. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere is a small island that we can't even get off the ground, and many communities within our own nation are crumbling, yet we feel it appropriate to focus upon allowing a flood of migrants to jump and swim across our borders at-will and to grant them special exceptions, why? The bottom line is that certain greedy businesses want cheap, uneducated labor, and certain corrupt politicians want to garner a new future political base in the hopes of ensuring tenure, that is all. Our country is being undermined by a cheap few who would happen to rather sell us all out in the hopes of furthering their own deceitful agendas. Therefore, these immigrants must be deported, and all illegals currently residing here must be sent packing. Sure, there maybe some hiccups along the way and a bit of gnashing of teeth and claws, but in the end we will be a better nation for it. We are an amazing country, and we deserve to be very picky about who we allow in. Only the best and brightest who respect and abide by our founding ideals should be allowed here, and that is the bottom line.
