Here’s some really good news about illegal immigration. ABC has found that word is spreading across Central America that anyone thinking of trying to cross the border illgally should stay home. The first paragraph would lead you to believe that this is due to the “sagging economy,” but read on and you’ll find that it’s really due to the broad-based crackdown on illegal immigration by the federal government, states and municipalities.
“What I want to say to all the people from El Salvador or other countries, the situation in this country is not easy. It’s very difficult and it’s not worth it to risk your life,” said day laborer Jose Manuel Munoz through a translator.
From suburban Washington to rural El Salvador, ABC 7 heard from many immigrants that they are warning their friends and relatives to not come to America. “I say to the rest, this is not a good time to come to the United States. If you are okay, over there, in El Salvador, stay there,” said Rosa Nativi.
Carlos Diaz’ sister lives in Manassas. “She has told me that a lot of people is afraid to get out of their houses, to walk in the streets, because they’re getting caught by immigration department and they’re getting deported,” he said through a translator.
“If somebody pays me one million dollars, I will never do it again. Not ever,” Diaz said.
I encourage all of you to write to your senators and congressmen, including your state representatives, and tell them to keep up the pressure and enact legislation that makes it ever more difficult for illegals to function in our society. The efforts are paying off and having an effect. Let’s keep it up!
