When we talk abbot reforming our immigration policies here in the United States, we are not only talking about ways to lessen the burden on the United States and her taxpayers. A lot people don’t realize that. They believe, maybe because it’s the only thing the media focuses on, that conservative are trying to stop people from coming into this country.
Most of them are not. What conservatives really seem to want is to have these folks come here legally and safely. Strengthening border security measures funnels these would-be Americans into the naturalization process at approved border crossings.
Because, left to our own devices, human beings can be cruel and terrible.
The video, released by El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez, shows what she said was two smugglers scaling the fence and dropping each child onto the ground and harsh surface, before tossing what appears to be some belongings down.
The video, which went viral on social media, is not easy to watch.
Smugglers, under cover of night, scaled a 14 ft. border barrier and cruelly dropped 2 young children in the middle of the New Mexico desert. The girls, ages 3 & 5, were left miles from the nearest residence. Thank you STN Agents for rescuing these children! @CBP @CBPWestTexas pic.twitter.com/U91y2g8Lk1

The area where the children were dropped has no residences, with the nearest home being miles away. Border Patrol’s surveillance equipment detected the toddlers, and alerted nearby officers to intervene.
