As a compassionate Latino, I support legal immigration. I want people of all nations to come to this country with dignity and respect, with their families in safety. They should not be robbed, raped and extorted by ruthless smugglers or taken advantage of because they are cheap labor.

Organized crime operates human trafficking. It is a tremendous money-making enterprise. Millions of dollars per week are made from its human victims. Those who hire and condone undocumented workers partake of this ruthless organized crime.

I have no compassion for the businessmen or community leaders who condone this heinous practice.

I support the legislative bills that will put an end to this "migration without compassion."
