Planet News Views Editorial: Immigration Reform Takes Center Stage In American Politics

Congress is considering what to do about all the illegal immigrants in this country and how to keep those numbers from growing much larger.

Millions of undocumented immigrants, mostly from Mexico, now live in the United States, and the overwhelmingly majority of them got here by sneaking across the U.S.- Mexico border.

We are told these people just want a better life, but that doesn't make it right. Terrorists could also sneak into the country, and that makes Americans wonder why more isn't being done to secure the borders.

Building a fence, as a few in Congress want to do, does not seem like the best option. Enforcing the border by putting more National Guardsmen there would make a lot of sense.

After all, if the United States government can spend hundreds of billions on the Iraq War, there must be enough money to protect the borders.
