What struck me most was that 99.9 percent of all persons illegally entering the country are being trafficked in by the cartels. Many people mistakenly believe that illegal immigration is when people decide to come to the United States and sneak across on their own. Ironically, the cartels have done what the United States has not, which is secure the border. If they find an alien on their territory trying to cross without having paid their “fees,” they’ll murder them. It is a part of organized crime, and people who are routinely abused, tortured, and exploited are the product. Another thing that struck me was just how many persons illegally entering the United States have criminal records. They enter illegally because they cannot enter legally, and the reason why they cannot enter legally is because they have criminal records. https://townhall.com/columnists/sco...-you-want-to-build-the-wall-yourself-n2539343 This was an interesting article that led me to see our southern border problem from a different perspective. I had no idea that criminal cartels had such a large role in illegal entry to the USA. Doing everything we can to shut down illegal entry would be a good thing in many different ways.
