Divided not By Choice “The U.S- Mexican border es una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds.

“Illegal immigration continues to be a major problem in the United States. We have people wanting to come here legally and we should not be rewarding people who have come here illegally,” said John Barrasso.
