What flavor is that kool-aid you’re drinking?

Like far-too-many other stories on this issue, this piece is written on the faulty premise that people MUST cross the border. What this author refuses to address or apparently even consider is that every border-jumper had the option to do the right thing…either stay home, violate some other country’s sovereignty, or apply to come in legally.

The other faulty premise that this author apparently bases part of this piece on is that Mexico’s economic well-being is somehow our responsibility. It is not. Our responsibility is to take care of our own house, and let the neighbors worry about their houses. I’m not saying the situation in Mexico isn’t unfortunate, what I am saying is that it is not our problem. We have plenty of home-grown problems to deal without worrying about other peoples’.
