@RABEL222,
I'm actually doing this for the newbies, and just hope facts are important to them. With politics, ya never know.

@cicerone imposter,
i think most people don't recognize what it's like to walk the path as if they're in somebody else's shoes, let alone walking 2,000 miles plus insurmountable odds of getting to a finish line. Only to be turned away because they're not the "right" kind of immigrant.

@neptuneblue,
Also, being the victim of crime in their own country/city. How many parents would try to protect themselves and their children? The answer is simple, but many put blinders on. Not all places in the United States is safe, but escaping from a country where violence is common is reason enough to move elsewhere. Most of us are descendants of people who escaped from similar circumstances, or because of the lack of opportunity. The fact of the matter is, our country needs more immigrants. The birthrate of baby-boomers were historically low, and we now have an aging population without enough workers. Many countries are suffering the same fate; unless they let migrants into their country, their economy and caretakers will disappear. https://thehill.com/opinion/immigration/431388-with-low-birth-rate-america-needs-future-migrants Building a wall is based on ignorance and racism.
