Best way to reduce illegal immigration is to simplify legal immigration. Both Trump and Biden administrations have fucked up in this regard.
Today 46 people were found dead inside a trailer in San Antonio. These people were probably being smuggled across the border in the 100+ heat of Texas without food and water.
The trailer was open but the people were so weak they could not escape.
This is a human tragedy for which Democrats and Republicans both should be held accountable. It is their failure of pass a decent, predictable and fair immigration laws has resulted into this tragedy.
Every dead person is someone’s father, mother, son, daughter and sister. Each of them was looking for a better life. For USCIS and DHS though they are mere statistics and for Border patrol animals.
For folks like Senator Durbin they are mere hostages using which they further their own political career.
