People are not leaving "good" situations in their countries to come here. They are fleeing wars, persecution, constant threats to their dignity as human beings. As a mother, I can promise you, that if I was in a situation that these people are in I would do anything to protect my children. And I would hope that we could find the compassion to treat everyone with dignity and respect. Let us not forget that many of our ancestors entered this country and took the dignity, respect and lives away from the people that were here to begin with. So how dare we deny others what our ancestors took by force, because they felt they had a right to it! And the only thing our ancestors wanted was religious freedom. Many of the immigrants in this country just want to go to sleep without hearing gunshots or fearing for their lives! They just want a chance at a better life regardless of anyone's religion. Whatsoever you do to the least of your brothers let it be done unto you! Walk a mile in someone else's shoes before you pass judgment!
