People keep voting with the idea of compassion but the ‘idea’ of compassion doesn’t rest in the minds and hearts of those who will take advantage of the good hard working American citizens. They won’t wise up and their children and grandchildren will suffer for it….we are not on a good path when we allow anyone who wants to be here to be here just because they are more disadvantaged or have a sad story. Many American citizens have a sad story and we should be making sure they are taken care of first and foremost and those who enter legally are welcome. If we didn’t give unearned benefits to those who just touched our border illegally five minutes ago, we could take care of our poor, disabled, elderly and veterans. What a concept?
