A Secure Border?

No one can guarantee that the US border is "secure," but those who oppose immigration reform have made this a condition of their cooperation.

Only if the border is first "secured" will they vote for changes in how the US handles immigrants who arrived without papers and have been living here for years.

See this excellent discussion of this problem in the Los Angeles Times on March 10.


In my visit to Nogales in January, I learned that Arizona's border with Mexico is crossed all the time by migrants, drug smugglers, human traffickers, and coyotes assisting migrants.  The fence only extends through populated areas and places without craggy mountainsides.  It ends, and people cross.

See my article on the website of EEWC-Christian Feminism Today:


Write to your Congressperson or Senator and ask him or her to be flexible on this issue.
