Yes, we need to secure our borders, however, we must not forget that the United States has always stood up for the oppressed, and provided an opportunity for those that did not have one. Let us not forget who we are.
We are a nation of immigrants. This land of the free is and forever will be a symbol of hope for those pursuing the same thing as the rest of us; the American Dream.
We need to modernize our borders and come up with better methods that are more adaptive to the evolving tactics taking place at the border. We need to create a fair and faster path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants and we need to ensure the protection of our dreamers so that they are not pushed out of the only country they have ever known.
