Re: “Hey, US Senators, Thanks for Visiting, How About a Tour?

Yes! These men who "represent" us don't seem to want to know what we think, what we see, what we are concerned about. A real tour would include Border Patrol as only one piece of the information.

Where and at what time will this event be held? No fair to get me interested and then not give these important details!

Re: “Local Heroes

Thank you for this wonderful list of people doing good. It helps when we can see what is right with the world, or at least our own small part of it.

Re: “Guest Commentary

It is true, it can take many, many years for citizenship hearings and approval.
To AZLRS - the mom and child came here twelve years ago, but maybe mom didn't get married for awhile. The article doesn't say. And I think, though I'm not sure, that mom had to be a citizen before she could petition for her child.
Also, Mexico is a wonderful place. I travel there as often as I am able. However, there are places in Mexico I no longer go, such as Juarez, as there is so much violence there. Likewise, there are many places in the US I don't go to because of crime and violence.

Re: “Guest Commentary

I also know people who came here illegally. The legal way means 10+ years on a wait list. These people aren't "thumbing their noses" at our laws. They have done something desperate in an attempt to have a decent life for themselves and their children.
Also, there aren't any decapitated bodies in our desert - one of the many lies our governor uses as scare tactics to push her agenda.
Think of it this way: If our economic situations were reversed and people in the US went to Mexico to work, I think we'd be calling those people heroes. Because the situation is reversed, we call them "illegal" and worse.
We need a law that will allow people to come, work, and return home. Ir we did this, illegal immigration would slow to a trickle.
