A few years ago, I taught in a different school where I had many kids from El Salvador. One student in particular was quite troubled. I mean. He was a real pain in the butt. But I never sent him out of class because I'm not that kind of teacher.

But other teachers were having problems with him and he ended up on the assistant principal's almost every day. He was very disruptive in their classes. Finally, the guidance counselor got permission to share his story.

It turns out that this boy hid under the bed while his mother was repeatedly raped when he was 4 years old.
He witnessed his mother being raped.

So for those of you who think Evil Keebler Elf's policy is a deterrent, you HAVE NO IDEA what these poor people have been through.
They are not coming here to steal your jobs. They are fleeing in DESPERATION.

Think about it. WHAT would it take for you to leave your home, your country... everything? Why would you leave to go somewhere you don't even speak the language? What would it take? It would have to be horrible.

Now let's talk about money. What do you think it costs to incarcerate all these families?
Who is paying for it?
A hint... Not Mexico
And who gets that money?
Speaking of money...

And if you have no moral compass, let's talk about you bank account.
We MAKE money off immigration. One of the reasons the US recovered faster from the recession than others is our immigration policies.
If you reduce legal immigration, you will CRIPPLE our economy.
