This is like telling someone that they have an “irrational fear” for not wanting to jump off of a cliff.
Whether the fear is rational or not, it is certainly real.
There was always a reason why immigration has to be kept under control. One of the major reasons is because we know NOTHING about these new arrivals who have entered by clandestine means, and until they reveal their presence by some means, including, and most particularly by, the commission of some criminal activity, there are few means of even identifying them. There is also the danger of importing some communicable diseases along with their physical presence, and the even greater danger that the person crossing the border has malevolent intent, either against an individual, or some agency of our government, part of a plan of invasion and disruption of our domestic tranquility.
None of the consequences of illegal entry end well.
The people of the United States of America are not unmerciful. There is the very real possibility that those fleeing across our border are victims of persecution in their homeland, and as refugees they are taken in for at least temporary respite. But no such refugee has uncontested right to remain here, and if possible, every attempt should be made to ascertain that the refugee actually is subject to persecution, and is not merely fleeing the properly ordained laws of the home country.
This circumstance is much more rare than has been attributed, and is frequently combined with an effort to circumvent or defraud the normal immigration process.
This is an example of “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Heavy shame is falling upon the people of America, and certain of their leaders.
Not exactly an organization that I'm listening to when they start spouting their social policies..
