I have recently heard or read somewhere that there are roughly 11 million illegal aliens from Mexico currently living in the United States. This is a number that is constantly changing, I am sure that there are some crossing the border right now. The population of illegal Mexican aliens, 11 million, is greater than the combined citizenship of New York and Chicago. When will this end?
It is almost impossible to turn on your television or computer and not see a story pertaining to this issue. Drug cartels, drug tunnels, human trafficking, death and the sad stories of these people just trying to get to a better place for a better life. I saw a show the other day that talked about the “desert dead”. All of the unidentified dead bodies of Mexicans that did not make it through the desert to their destination – America. Refridgerated trucks had to be brought in to Arizona to store the remains of the hundreds of bodies that are plucked from the desert. Every woman that attempts to cross the border also plans to be raped along the way. Most buy contraception because they know that they stand a very good chance of being raped as a favor to the person “the Coyote” that is guiding their crossing. How bad must their life be if they still try to cross the border knowing that this is probably going to happen?
Another 700,000 illegals are caught each year by US Border Patrol Agents. This seems like a big number, but in reality, it is a small number compared to the numbers that are streaming into our country. When will this all end? Never, unless we do something to end it. A bigger fence? Maybe, I am not qualified to come up with the perfect solution. We have a president, senators and a giant government to make the decision on how to end this problem. But do you know what we don’t have? We don’t have anyone with enough cajones to stand up and say – “This is the United States and this is how we are fixing this problem”. We need someone to take a stand and make it happen. We need to be the ones taking the action instead of letting all of this happen to us.
