I have a few friends who, being immigrants, know a little about immigration. None of which are against keeping bad people out of the country. Our former president (Barack Obama) deported more illegals than any other president, albeit quietly and without fanfare. It reflects what Teddy Roosevelt once said: “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”
It is not immigration that most people argue with, but the method of enactment. Questionable human rights tactics, arbitrarily detaining and rejecting innocents, building a wall that will never be paid for by our neighbors, all the while people finding ways to fly over, dig under or swim around, will be an almost impossible way to achieve the goal.
There is a preferred way do most everything and always another way to do anything! Common sense, prudence, respect, and living within the laws of the land need prevail for peace within our own borders and people. Focus on that and all sides will most likely agree to AGREE. Practice Aloha and Pono.
