It has only been a little over 200 years since this country was
overrun by Manifest Destiny and "first come, first serve".
Now - what's the deal? These people willing to risk their
lives and all they have, to illegally enter this country, do
so because they have no food. They have no shoes. They live in
little shacks with wells and little to no electricity. Their
sewers run down the middle of the streets, and dysentery and
diseases abound. Their children are in various stages of starvation.
There is no where whatsoever to find any work. They are desperate
because they are starving and absolutely have NO prospects. If
you could not provide food for your families, this is what you
would do too, just to survive.
If this "letter of the
law" is so manifest destiny to you, why don't you go down
there and try to HELP? Why doesn't our government start work
projects down there so these people have *options*? Why not fly
food, send doctors, Project Sewer Lines, or just ANYTHING at
all, instead of sitting in your armchairs and whining? Ever hear
of - walk a mile in their shoes?
Quit yer bitchin'! (so MANY
more IMMINENT concerns about now, I would say)
