As informed citizens, we know that the so-called emergency on our southern border is in fact something manufactured by a failing president desperate to hang onto his shrinking base. Our February speaker, Bardis Vakili of the American Civil Liberties Union, presented an informative talk on the situation.
Mexico is one of our largest trading partners, and the propaganda-like claims about immigration are at odds with the reality. Whether documented or not, immigrants have always contributed far more to the counry than they took in any kind of benefits, and they present less of a danger to us that native born citizens do.
