Regarding the Feb. 11 online article, “Congress considers toughening standards on immigrants’ asylum claims,” I must say it’s quite the astonishment seen how much this world has changed just in few centuries look at the point of time we are in.
It’s disturbing seeing how we could pass a bill regarding asylum for mothers and children. That is not what we should be doing, and it’s still will not change a thing for people getting into the country illegally.
There are reasons why these immigrants want a way out of their old lives. They are literally being tortured, so why are we being cruel?
We must make this a bigger issue today and from now on by changing what is going on here. No matter where you come from, everyone who comes to our states without consent, at least, should have freedom of speech.
At least, we can act like we do care for everyone. This is what our government tries to do: make it seem like we care for everyone. Why not really mean it, and make our world a better place for everyone to live in?
