New attitude needed

The solution to the problem of illegal immigrants in the United States lies not in either strengthening our boarder control or in kicking all illegals out of the country. But in changing our attitude.

Nationalism and border disputes have been a major cause of conflict and war throughout history. While on the other hand, a major contributing factor to the strength and development of our country comes from the fact that all people can travel and trade freely across state boundary lines.

If we are to have world peace we must recognize and accept the fact that all human beings, regardless of where they reside, are world citizens with equal civil rights, the right to be protected from unfair labor exploitation, and the right to travel, work and trade wherever they wish.

Then the illegal immigrant will no longer exist.
