The People Truly Impacted By Illegal Immigration

My Uncle, William McDonald, a very prominent rancher in Southern Arizona, speaks to the Foreign Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee about how border issues affect Americans on the front lines. The issue of illegal immigration is a sensitive, complicated issue, but I think our country often loses sight of the people who are truly affected by it — hardworking citizens like my Uncle, who deserve a government that takes their plight seriously. This came shortly after his neighbor on the bordering ranch was murdered by drug smugglers a mile from our family ranch house. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
