Taking down Mexican Wall

Having a wall at the border DOES NOT REDUCE illegal immigration, it in fact INCREASES illegal immigration. America needs to start getting their act together understanding the best way is to take down the wall allowing a bridge between Mexico and America to unite as one.  When there is no wall, people from America and Mexico can freely walk across the border at their own free will. Because of how America has tried to strengthen the wall, the level of illegal immigration rises as people moving to and from now have a high probability of being unable to go back to their family and home. This is something that America has not addressed properly which represents incompetency.  Considering the inhumane actions by Jeff Sessions and how Donald Trump has, from time to time again, blamed other parties for his decisions results in one of the worst acts by ANY United States Government. Making a lie the truth, this has resulted in extreme captivity of innocent lives which doesn't seem like this reality is going to dissipate with views of xenophobia/discrimination/racism/torture due to locking up people in caged areas. First most, it's wrong to ANY degree to lock up innocent lives and this shows how much the US Government has gone downhill ever since January 20 2017.  My point is this: No wall means lower Illegal Immigration My point is not this: Having a wall means lower Illegal Immigration America is a nation built up of immigrants and vast migrant history where now is seems as though most Republicans and US Citizens are now advocating a supremacy status. It's wrong to any degree to support Supremacy views considering they're immensely extreme plus it's a definite human right to ensure every... EVERY human being has their choice to live and travel where they want to, not by the command of the US Government. The first step of success to achieve stronger immigration is to take down what divides another country and it's people which being is the wall. Citizens of Mexico flock in and out at their own ability considering some regions are poor in condition as they thrive on living in a better world. THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY CROSS THE BORDER. If we strengthen the wall, we have just given way to permanently being unable to stop Illegal Immigration once and for all.  If the wall were to be completed, it would have to go through many housing/rivers/trees which means a lot of damage to the environment plus would come at expense of billions if not trillions of dollars. Implementing the wall was a bad idea from the beginning and has made tackling Illegal Immigration more difficult. Having a wall at the border does NOT make things better, it violates human rights and hurts the American economy. As for me not being an American citizen, it's common sense that the best decision is to strip down the wall completely to save our environment and provide security to Mexican citizens as they, as much as anyone, should have their own will to travel freely without authoritarian exhaustion.   *The wall at the border in the middle of America and Mexico needs to be taken down. One should be saying that countries working together is a better result than countries working against each other*

Petition To Fix Our Broken Immigration System

  We are calling on Congress to pass an omnibus bill as a requisite first step toward fixing our broken immigration system.  US immigration has long reached a crisis point. Immigration processes remain inexplicably impractical, inhumane, unfair and anachronistic. Human rights violations are widespread while banks and private prisons profit immensely from the suffering that the system itself creates. Additionally, we now have a population of 12 million undocumented immigrants who fell through the cracks of immigration pathways that were designed to readily accept European and other "desired" immigrants, while immigrant families from so-called "shit hole" countries are forced to "wait in line" for years - or decades in some cases. A businessman in Norway may decide to move to America on a whim and still get his green card for residency sooner than someone from a so-called "shit hole" country, who was already "waiting in line" for 9 years prior. An Irish immigrant family is able to navigate our immigration pathways without much inconveniences and zero fear of having their child taken away from them. Meanwhile, "undesirable" immigrants are separated from their families like chattel, even if they are already a permanent resident or have legally applied for asylum. We are concerned that President Trump's designation of some countries as "shit hole" countries and some immigrants as "animals", accurately reflects the age-old prejudices that have informed and continue to inform our immigration laws. We are concerned that current enforcement tactics create even more human suffering, pours more profits into the pockets of benefit banks and private prisons operators - and does little to address the real problems. Moreover, many of us are asking about the elephants in the room - what happens to the 12 million undocumented immigrants who are already here? Will our deportation force remove them all? Whose interest does it serve to keep millions of immigrants in limbo while delaying the passing of an omnibus, comprehensive immigration bill - thus eliminating piecemeal, ad hoc responses to the multiplier impact of our broken system? Comprehensive immigration reform provides an unprecedented opportunity to redesign the US immigration experience while creating new pathways for those immigrants who have built their lives here and continue to contribute to the country's leadership as a fair, just, equitable and enterprising nation. The time has come for our elected representatives in Congress to honor their commitment to immigration justice. Without comprehensive immigration reform, there will be more incidents of state-sanctioned child kidnappings, indefinite imprisonment of families, separation of families and abuse of due process. The longer we take to pass comprehensive immigration reform, the more desperate our responses will become. We are asking Congress to pass an omnibus bill that: Ends family detention and separation Provides pathways to citizenship for undocumented immigrants in America Translates a clean Dream Act into law Identifies and eliminates current pitfalls and prejudices in our immigration system Replaces I.C.E with a more humane and transparent enforcement agency Comprehensive immigration reform proposals have been debated by Congress for years, so too has pathways to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. It's time to turn these discussions into meaningful action. A responsible, humane and rational immigration system IS possible. ----
