We have all heard of the wall Donald Trump wants to build along the Mexico border. Some people are saying that the wall will keep “evil out” – as if the people from Mexico are all drug dealers and murders. Not everyone “evil” comes from outside America. Immigrants come to America to make better lives.
In a recent Valley Voices commentary, the author mentioned the Bible and what is says about walls. She talks about our walls being breached and gives the example of 9/11. People need to start opening their eyes and see that the stereotype is not always right. Not all Muslims are terrorists, just like not all Mexicans are lazy.
If we were to make this border and send all the immigrants away, our economy would change, because no one wants the jobs immigrants do and won’t accept the same pay as they do.
Here’s the real question: Why would people come to America to commit crimes or do evil? They could do that anywhere. If they get caught here, they know that they will get sent back.
