America and immigration: The gourd’s neck cannot be straightened in its old age.

US border security is the key to reduce the flow of illegal immigrants coming from Mexico; although, not all the illegal aliens in the US come from Mexico. They come from different regions of our planet.

The number of illegal immigrants in the United States  remains unclear. Statistics about immigration estimate the number of the undocumented to 11 million. Despite the effort of the US Senate to reform immigration, immigration policy remains a challenge.

Tough laws will significantly reduce the number of newcomers, but America will remain traditionally a promised land for immigrants from around the world. As the Masai of Kenya say, “The gourd’s neck cannot be straightened in its old age.”
