Unhappy Ever After?

We’d like to think that our immigration stories all have happy-ever-after endings. 

But I worry about those sneaking across the border. How many young people are picked up by perverts, recruited by brutal gangs or abandoned by coyotes who promise a glorious garden and deliver a desert?

How many end up worse off than they started?



Lord God, show us a better way.

  1. There is a better way. We need to put our own house in order, so that the drug gangs and perverts are marginalized to the point of extinction.

    The immigrants are not our problem. Our tolerance for outlaws IS.

      You’re right, Andrew, we get it backwards.

    Good morning…..I agree completely w/your worry sect…we used to live in Arizona back in the ’80’s…our kids were born out there…we absolutely loved…it…our hearts are still out there albeit we live elsewhere…but you are so right…prob the coyotes…who do abandon them…the happily ever after for them…is not happily ever after….etc….

    Thank you for reminding us of that…..Shirlee…..

    Have a blessed day……guys…..

      I am especially concerned about unaccompanied immigrant children, Kathy. My heart wants to think everyone is watching out for the kids’ best interests, but my head knows better.
