Oh. Sometimes I almost want to cry when they find dead bodies out in the desert of illegals. Blackened from the sun, with no way to trace who they are and let their family know what happened. So I guess I can relate. It is sad business.

It was pathetic and SHAMEFUL on the part of the ACLU.
I was watching on the news tonight about a homeless camp in Los Angeles where many American Citizens with CHILDREN were living.. The footage showed CalTrans crews cleaning up the menial possessions of the homeless that were sleeping underneath this freeway structure.. I was thinking to myself "Where is The ACLU to protect these Homeless AMERICANS' rights?"..

The solution to this problem is very simple. Stay in your own country. Do not illegally enter the US and wander around in the desert. If you do not have a legal way to come here, then you are not supposed to be here. Keep out.

Well, then take it up with Mexico -- haven't they (and possibly still do) hand out maps to potential illegal immigrants on the best way to sneak across the border? While their deaths are horrible, and surely noone deserves to die that way (or as was the case a few years ago when they found 10-20 illegals packed in a train car, they had all suffacated) perhaps as is the case with Mexico if they actually valued their citizens would help the US by securing the border on their side as opposed to encouraging their people to break the law and attempt to sneak in.

Perhaps if said illegals stayed home; they would still be alive and with their loved ones.

I feel bad for children dragged through that type of ordeal admittedly; the parents------------the hell with 'em.

Face it: if we had an electrified fence and people were zapped by it...........the illegal aliens would still be just as dead.

In addition, Mexican consulate officials knowingly provide their illegal citizens with fraud-prone matricula consular IDs (which aren't even acceptable in Mexico) and encourage their illegal citizens to use US hospitals without bothering to reimburse the costs.

The Mexican government should be ashamed of itself for doing the above but doesn't seem to be for some strange reason(s)...

What's sad is I'm sure you feel much worse for these people, who are breaking the law by coming into this country illegally, than the thousands of Americans raped or murdered by illegals who are truly INNOCENT. Death is sad no matter what the circumstance, but when people feel more compassion for someone is hurt performing a criminal act than an innocent person, especially a child, then the world is truly becoming a sad place.
