Border Security is NOT Immigration Reform
President Obama has been conferring with the Republicans in Senate and has come to the decision that he will send 1,200 National Guard troops to increase security at the US-Mexico border. Furthermore, he will also request $500,000,000 in order to have more personnel and technology down at the border. His reason for doing so is to decrease drug trafficking, crimes, and violence at the border.
While drug trafficking is an important issue that needs to be addressed, it is not an immigration issue. Immigration reform needs to be addressed as well. While the President is focusing on the border, he is neglecting the millions of immigrants who are in need of a better immigration system.
