No matter what side of the aisle you hail from, one thing is certain: Our immigration system is in need of serious help. This is an undeniable reality that even the most fervent members of “the resistance” agree with.
Of course, it is President Trump’s insistence on tackling the subject that has drawn a political division on the subject of this humanitarian crisis. The left simply needs to oppose Trump, for whatever reason, and this border battle is a great way for these “resistance” figures to get attention as the 2020 election looms in the distance.
The issue here is not one of exclusion; even the President himself has explained this several times. You see, Trump isn’t in favor of ending immigration to America – he is in favor of bringing would-be American into this land of opportunity through the legal immigration system. The reason being that illegal immigration is fraught with cruelty and peril that no human being should be forced to face.
As the democrats continues to oppose the President on the subject, a shocking piece of video footage has surfaced in which undocumented migrants can be seen simply walking around a border wall on their way into America.
New footage released by Customs and Border Protection shows a group of more than 130 migrants entering the U.S. by simply walking around a section of border wall in Arizona — in the latest incident prompting calls to curb the historic surge in illegal immigration.
The video, which could also fuel calls from Trump allies to close gaps in the existing U.S.-Mexico barrier, shows a procession of migrants walking around a section of wall in Sasabe, Ariz. A tweet from CBP said they were later arrested.
The video footage is simply stunning.

The hospitalization of these migrants is an important footnote.
The journey through Mexico to the border isn’t easy, by any means, but it pales in comparison to what occurs once these migrants reach the hazard-filled desert between America and her southern neighbor. Not only are these asylum seekers facing intense heat, dehydration, and dangerous wildlife, but the smugglers working these routes often victimize women and children along the way.
