The buses filled with Hispanics could be completely innocent or it could be slave labor. When people come over our border illegally, they still need to work and be a part of society. Since they are undocumented they can be gravely taken advantage of. Kids can be sex-trafficked and adults can be paid far less than minimum wage or forced to work for just room and board. They won’t seek help for fear of being sent back to where they came from.

Is anyone really tracking where all these illegal immigrants, all the Afghan refugees are being sent? If they are not being made into citizens overnight they are very vulnerable to predators. This is an often overlooked reason for border policies.

Evil does not come from skin color, it comes from the heart and all are susceptible.
