    Oh, how I wish the DN would strive for some balance here.
    Would it be too much trouble to write about the plight of border towns like Ft Hancock, TX?
    It's about an hour down the road from El Paso, where the fence ends.
    They will tell you about the US side of border violence.
    As for this sob story:
    1) It is a violation of the Vienna Convention (Article 55) for foreign governments to interfere with US legislation.
    2) Illegal aliens have enough advocates and apologists without this added voice.
    3) Our immigration laws should serve our interests.
    4) We should not be intimidated by threats of future violence, even if priests make those threats.

    "a dormitory-style shelter filled with people recently deported from the U.S. and other migrants waiting to cross the border."

    "But the shelter is no safe place"

    Well, when you're a criminal and in the process of breaking laws(illegally entering the United States) you wont get much sympathy from me.

    I'm disappointed a housing complex like this is here, to encourage illegal immigration. They are putting people up who are "waiting to cross the border"

    Why not establish homes for people "waiting to rob a bank"


    "waiting to kidnap children"

    Sounds like jail is the most fitting place for these criminals trying to break the laws of my great country.

    Obey the law or don't come to my country
