i dont know what you think is despair, but here in america they are not in despair. food, clothing, a house with 20 or 30 relatives under one roof, free health care because they are illegal, and no way 2 tr ac e if you're a convicted felon
same id as a 100 year old man, or woman, and same id as a 2 day old baby. so how is that in despair

This is referring to why folks cross the border, not how they are after they cross the border. Thanks for answering a great question, they are better off here than Mexico.

You can call your local ICE. I would work for the Border Patrol to uphold the law of this great nation, but I would also hire because I have compassion for those who are desperate for money.

There are poor Americans, but you will never find those kinds of percentages. The continuous idea of poor Americans is your shield, when in fact there are plenty of low-paying jobs for all Americans. If you can't disprove the reason why illegal immigrants come here, you haven't disproved my argument.
