As I scan through the channels on TV, I notice Border Wars, a documentary show on National Geographic detailing their 'war' on illegal immigrants. A few years ago, I remember hearing a very pertinent and fresh perspective on immigration: It's when people don't want to hop fences to come to America when we have real problems- meaning people wanting to risk their lives to come to America for a better life is a good thing. The USA is still the land of the American dream.
The proof: Immigrants aren't climbing fences, boarding boats, and traveling across deserts for a better life in Russia or China. America is the land of freedom, democracy and opportunity.
