We need to address our immigration system and not ignore it. We need to promote more jobs in law enforcement to support federal, state and local efforts to protect South Texas from border violence. Then, we need to create a realistic and fair way to deal with the millions of undocumented workers currently in this country. Although we cannot reward those who have crossed in violation of law and should immediately deport those who have committed crimes in this country, we cannot punish those who have been in this country for years, paid their taxes and who have been good citizens. Those who are born in this country should not be separated from their families. Those who have been educated here and served our country should be given a reasonable path to citizenship.
