Illegal Aliens

Are they truly illegal? Should they be? All around I hear people condemning others for hating Mexicans, for having no human love or tollerability toward others. At the same time people curse the others for subjecting our citizens to the dangers of an open boarder, allowing things like drug trades, economic turmoil, and a lack of ability to communicate with even local residents.

I don't hate Mexicans, I just want to be safe, but more and more I feel like I'm part of the minority by not being a part of either extreme. Am I some sort of fiend for wanting a secure boarder? Is there a bigger issue here, like the "North American Union" deal?

High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
