    @Fullypresent:

    I agree with part of your statement. "What stands between us and countries in full anarchy are laws and their enforcement."

    Just remember that our laws are supposed to apply to everyone - even the President.

    "When all of these immigrants put their personal needs and interests before our country's long term welfare and laws it is difficult to know how our country will overcome all of this."

    Again, replace "all of these immigrants" with "Trump and his employees."

    These immigrants had enough respect for our laws to immediately turn themselves into to Border and Customs officers.

    Ask yourself, how bad would it have to be for me to take my children, travel by foot over 1,000 miles, tunnel under a wall, and accept imprisonment in a foreign land that hates me.

    Do you really think these families do this out of spite? You think they do it on a whim because they don't respect us?

    Their mistake was believing in an America that welcomed the poor and huddled masses, a so-called "Christian" nation they hoped would offer a welcoming hand to a stranger.

    How could you know that "many will join" criminal gangs?

    DN - that seems like speculation to me.

    On the one hand many desperate people. On the other hand so many people both in and outside our country that have no respect for the laws of our land. They throw them in our face like they mean nothing. Like we have no right to secure our borders.

    What stands between us and countries in full anarchy are laws and their enforcement. Without them we are a nation full of many compassionate people but in anarchy ourselves.

    As it is we are already held hostage by our leaders in Washington who do not put our country before their need to be right.

    When all of these immigrants put their personal needs and interests before our country's long term welfare and laws it is difficult to know how our country will overcome all of this. Many of them may work and contribute. But, many will join the already problematic criminal, drug, human trafficking, and gang network in our country. This will not make for a better or safer nation. It will only make us more like the countries they are fleeing.
