Paper Tiger

The migrant caravan from countries south of Mexico have finally with some media fanfare made to the border at Tijuana. Will there be a mad rush by hundreds of desperate people looking for a chance no matter how slim but a chance at something better than what was left behind. Troops from the National Guard were sent to the border to monitor but not take an active role such as arresting or even having any contact with people crossing our border with Mexico. The migrants will go through the border and ask for asylum. The Border Patrol and Customs cannot refuse that legal request because that is the law, and we are a country of laws.

Instead of paying thousands of dollars and risking ones life walking through burning deserts… just show up at a legal border crossing and do it legally. The backlog of cases relating to immigration matters means it might be years before those who seek asylum will ever have to see a judge about their individual cases. There is no fear of the American Eagle anymore because our legal system has at least on this subject has become a “paper tiger.” The system is bogged down by paperwork that has to be processed. Our immigration problems are nothing compared to what has been experienced in Europe because of failed government policies in that part of the world. If there was a humanitarian way to just do the right thing at the right time.The time is now for that miracle to happen. North and South Korea are now talking peace. What will happen on the world stage is anyone’s guess. The paper tiger is a symbol of strength, beauty, and fragility. It is the perfect symbol for our world today.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
