We have problems as a country, definitely, our people suffer sometimes as much as the people we seek to help in other countries. But people, these illegal immigrants are in our country, they are in our borders already, we can put up an argument that America needs to rebuild itself and heal its wounds first to those outside wanting to come in or asking us to help them solve their problems, but to those inside, if we do what we have been doing, is that really the American way? Punishing places for doing what was right as human beings by taking away federal funding? There are times when we must think as citizens, but there are also times when we must just think as human beings. Immigrants can do great things if we give them the chance, immigrants can help us as we heal this nation from its wounds, and cutting them down, cutting down the state's who try to help them do just that, is that really the best choice?. America has a legacy in its history as the land of opportunities, let us not forget ourselves while we go through this uncertain time and find other ways to solve this problem that would benefit us, but most importantly all of the immigrants who just want a chance.
