What do you think about the illegal alien problem? People seem to come to this issue with a wide variety of opinions. The facts are all the same, but the interpretations are all over the political spectrum. We love our country. Others want to join us. We have rules and some are willing to risk the consequences associated with breaking the rules to get here.
There is a philosophical wall between Americans. We can agree on most of the problems, but we don’t agree on how to solve them. Some people believe the best answer is to sympathize with their plight and help the illegals. Others think we should support and enforce our laws.
This is a complex problem that is far beyond simple solutions. While the politicians are using aliens as political pawns and some businesses are using them for cheap labor, there is a human compassion component.
