While the debate rages in Washington about immigration, one thing that should be on the top of the list of considerations is being largely overlooked. In spite of the fact that the following report was aired on ABC, it’s unlikely that anyone is going to be hearing too many politicians grabbing the spotlight to talk about it. They will prefer to keep people focused on images of immigrants that want legal status, children that were dragged across the border illegally through no fault of their own, and the various low wage workers that certain portions of our economy theoretically must have in order to survive. There will be talk about STEM, and how much we need highly skilled immigrants, in spite of the fact that the better solution lies in better education opportunities for legal citizens. But, there won’t be very much talk about unfinished fence lines, small towns on the border within ear shot of the drug wars being waged just south of the theoretical border, or the fact that civilians have become the front line of our border defense through the use of personal security cameras. Politicians will not talk about the fact that there are citizens of this nation that have taken to bearing arms not out of choice because of their rights under the Second Amendment, but out of necessity, for their own safety. They are essentially a citizen militia, defending our border.
