These people and there families are starving and or watching their society wallow in degradation due to violence and unrest. While the United States lives in relative peace and prosperity in comparison. The pros out weight the cons almost every time. In basic economics it is a law that is easier to control the supply rather than the demand. Cut off the source of the problem and the problem will reduce. The U.S. must assist it's neighbors in securing a more sustainable environment to stop people from immigrating.
