The mass movement of people from “have-not” to “have” countries, from south to north, from areas of oppression to areas of freedom, from few opportunities for life to areas of opportunities, and from little-industrialization to late-stage-industrialization countries is a worldwide phenomenon. Disruption is being experienced also in Europe. Governmental responses have varied from open arms to use of force. What should the U.S. do? First, President Donald Trump and his supporters should stop the propaganda ploy of labeling immigrants and refugees as drug criminals, rapists, and members of the MS-13 gang. Most are young and families, according to media reports. Trump’s policies are failing; so let's implement policies of compassion, with a realistic assessment of the situation. Let's stop the lie that immigrants (legal or not) receive generous welfare benefits and the lie that they are a major source of crime. The vast majority of immigrants want jobs and safer lives. This is not to say our borders should not be controlled. If we implement the following policies we will have a much better chance to do just that: DACA, the Bracero Program for farm workers, more ICE and Border Patrol officers and immigration court judges, more appropriate detention facilities, case managers for underage detainees, return to letting parents decide if children stay or go with them when deported, a master list to account for detainees and their locations, grants to governments for economic development and to keep citizens in their Central American countries, enhanced medical screenings in detention, and continuing present legal-system requirements. Ceaseless blather about the need for a wall is as a distraction from implementing 21st-century solutions to our national problems.
