The long dangerous journey now being undertaken by thousands of migrants from Central America and beyond continues towards the U.S. with no let up in sight. The president has ordered the Nation Guard to the border to support the Border Patrol in their mission to secure the border. This act has only made the migrants more encouraged to continue moving North. They have only to reach the border and ask for asylum because they cannot be refused access to an immigration judge which could take years due to the current backlog of cases on file. America being a country of laws has no choice but to do what The president said about Obama “catch and release.” There are no borders for those who are forced to leave theirs homes to survive. Refugees become citizens of the world. Wherever you lay your hat is home becomes your mindset for survival.
The last time the world witnessed this level of displaced people was after World War 2. There are problems in Israel with African migrants. Western Europe is at odds with the influx of people from Syria. The oceans of the world can no longer be a barrier to those who want to come here, and we as a society should come up with a way to protect those who are already here. America will always be seen as a land of opportunity. That is what made this country great. That fact is obvious without the president saying he will make it so. We cannot stop what is coming our way. Society has had to accept a lot of changes when it comes to race and even gender issues. The one constant about life is “It changes.” That is a reality we all have to accept sooner or later. The caravans are a sign of the times we now own.
