A Simple Solution

February 23, 1992

It makes me very sad, every time I read or hear on the TV of people getting killed on the freeways crossing into this country from Mexico. Those poor people are just trying to escape poverty since their government does not do anything for them.

It is a shame that it can cost lives to try and sneak into this country. I blame our government for permitting this to happen. Our government could prevent those losses of life by merely posting our American soldiers along the border between Mexico and these United States to help our Border Patrol.

We keep our troops in Korea and every other unnecessary place in the world, except where it would directly help this nation to better control the influx of illegal aliens.

Evidently this is too simple a solution to a great problem.
