Our country accepts legal immigrants weekly, if not daily; let's try to remember that. Some of the cheaters agree to pay $1000 apiece to "cheat" over here. Sometimes these criminals have to crawl on their bellies in the sand for miles (or something stupid like that--I don't write the news stories). As with everything criminal and risky in life, some of these people die. Awww. Again; a little sympathy, but not much.
Then I saw a picture of the border fence in Nogales; are you kidding me? No more sympathy. Any adult in reasonably good health could scale that fence in seconds. Plus; there's the adrenaline rush of steady employment, decent wages, and the thought of saving $1000 for just a few seconds of effort.
I look forward to trying to contain my laughter while reading more stories about semi-intelligent adults dying in the desert. This should be an interesting summer.
