Protecting our borders
I have visited Central American countries and lived for three years each in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. These countries do not have an immigrant problem because foreigners are not breaking down their “walls” to get in. But they do enforce their immigrant laws.You must have a passport, which is valid for 90 days. If you overstay, you are subject to arrest.
So third-world countries can enforce their immigration laws and we can’t? Strange.
I have seen firsthand all the poverty in this region and understand why people want to seek a better life in the U.S. But it has to be legal immigration. We have to control our southern border and the only way to do this is with the wall.
