Immigration always involves two countries
The USCCB canít help solve the problem because it always blames one side. The US side.
To find a solution you have to go back and figure out the cause of the problem. You canít just say love your neighbor because both countries are causing the problem.
America was rich, Mexico was poor. America had social security, and other benefits. Mexico had none.
But, Mexico is rich in natural resources, tourist attractions, good climate and a good work force. Whatís wrong?
The Catholic church says that countries have to take care of their people. Mexico is in a position to grow, create jobs and take care of itsí people, There seems to be only one problem, the drug cartel.
Retiring Americans would love to take their money and move to Mexico but are afraid of crime. Foreign companies would love to invest and locate there (some are there) but their employees are afraid of the same problem, crime.
The solution becomes a little clearer. Both countries have to police and close the border to eliminate drug traffic. Mexico has to put a greater effort into finding the source of the drugs. The US has to put a greater effort into finding the drug buyers.
The two countries should have identical immigration laws.
The US has laws for naturalizing citizens. The law should be more lenient for people who are already here.
Then people who are here illegally would no longer be afraid to identify themselves.
