Given the consideration for the side of this bill, it’s reasonable to worry about the increasing rate of crimes as the undocumented repeatedly attempt to enter the nation.
However, there has to be a reason for the other side of the argument: the undocumented are also people who try to get back to their families in America and escape the undesirable conditions in their countries. People who seek asylums should not be held accountable by the federal government. As for the criminal rates, if we were to pay more attention to domestic affairs, we’d all know that immigrants are not the leading cause of increasing rates of crime (spoiler: it’s the white supremacists that admittedly increased mass shooting rates).
When we tighten our national security for our own well-being, we strengthen our national power. And that power would not be extant had it not been for the melting pot that makes up the United States today. For a person who risks their life and well-being to cross a border (soon to be accompanied with a wall), they should not be considered as a lesser human being or a criminal. They are what makes America great.
