America's Crisis needs an American Solution

At our southern border, there is a crisis.   Children, CHILDREN, are arriving at our borders after surviving a treacherous journey no parent should imagine any child going through.  Many are raped, abused, and sadly, many others never make it, dying along the trip.

America has always been a special country.  We have always helped other nations and peoples in crisis.  It is partly what sets us apart from the rest of the world as the leader of the free world.  We must now look to solve this crisis and help these kids.

The solution isn't just beefed up border security.  The Great Wall of China and Hadrian's Wall in England are stark reminders that walls fail.  The real solution is to help these children, address future flow with smarter border solutions and by prosecuting big businesses that profit from 11 million illegal aliens, and most importantly, by passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform now.

I am not blogging today as Chad Brandt, an immigration attorney in Orlando.  I am blogging as an American.  And I am not alone.  The editorial board of Central Florida's own Orlando Sentinel shares my view, as do Republicans (see the Sentinel) and Democrats.  Let's put politics aside and be Americans again, and help solve this crisis that's harming children by passing CIR now!  See the article below.
