I know I can't be the only American that finds the sights and sounds of illegals from latin America unpleasant and it's not being petty or trivial at all.
I'm living here in the thick of it in So. Calif. and I am as sick of it as you are. This madness has to end and soon!

Put the blame where it belongs.
The blame belongs squarely on the American companies who hired the workers. That was the first illegal act from which the others followed. If Americans didn't hire them, they wouldn't be here. It's unfair to the workers that they are hired by Americans, paid by Americans, and then detained by Americans and separated by Americans. I'm sure the workers are wondering "What is wrong with these people? Can't they make up their minds?" But you apparently see nothing wrong with setting this kind of a trap for hardworking people with families.

I'm sorry about that. I'm in a state bordering Canada and it is here too. I'm not sure the madness will ever end before getting worse. I wish Americans would come to their senses and grow a backbone and put it to an end.

Thanks, another one who speaks from experience. If not for my age and family here I'd get out of Mexifornia in a heartbeat.

Oh, just stop None of them are starving---and you know it, too. All anyone has to do is look at photos of those in the caravans. Besides, do you really think a starving child is in any condition to be dragged hundreds of miles to the US border?

As for gang violence---we have Americans who live in gang infested neighborhoods. Where are they supposed to go?

Not only that but there are safe places in every country to. There are safe places in Mexico and they offered them asylum along with jobs so why didn't they take them up on it? Violence nor poverty are viable reasons to claim asylum in our country anyway.
