In society we protect what we love and care for.
Our families are protected at night by a minimum of a locked door. And by possibly a weapon of some type.
The rich and connected, have fences, security systems, and armed guards.
And in all instances, we want to know who we are letting in, before they come in, for our protection.
Our banks, and government buildings all protected as well. And in many instances again, you have to show who you are, or at least show you are not a threat.
So why would we let people into this country without knowing who they are?
After all, this country is our collective home. We all live here, we should all know that those coming here are at least not a threat.
Here is a stat that should put things into perspective as to why we want to know who is here.
95% of foreign nationals in federal prison are illegal aliens
Actually 23% of all federal inmates are illegal
Your safety should be #1 and illegal immigration is unsafe
