News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Study shows impact of illegal immigration

2008-02-24 20:59:00

Recently, some San Luis Rio Colorado, Son. officials complained about the impact on their community of Arizona's sanctions against illegal aliens. The magnitude of the Mexican migration north should be one of absolute disgrace to the Mexican government.

The brazen confrontation exhibited by the Mexico government in regard to this glut of migration should have been confronted by overwhelming law enforcement and economically years ago in Mexico.

While the Mexican government must take responsibility for this human tragedy there is still a large quantity of shame left. In the United States, the right looks for low cost labor, while the left looks for more social programs and votes.

Each element willingly exploits human misery in seeking their ends and its added cost to the American people, along with missed opportunity of its children.

A real look at immigration in America is now available, "The Immigration Solution : A Better Plan Than Today's," by Heather MacDonald and Steven Malanga of the Manhattan Institute and Victor Hanson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

Their work discusses the immigration problem from areas which are not acceptable to public policy. These are the problems being omitted by the San Luis officials when they look for a solution.

The study of Southern California's Mexican teen birth rate was the highest in the country at 93 births per 1,000 girls. It also says that among Hispanic teens the stigma of single parenthood has vanished.

Crime reports show "28 percent of Mexican American males in San Diego between the ages of 18 and 24 reported having been arrested since 1995" - twice that of any other immigration group. Latino gang members fatally gunned down two grandmothers who had confronted them while they were spraying gang graffiti. From this we see the growing gang mentality.
