Your Letters: If you cross the border

It seemed appropriate to share the words of Jeff Foxworthy at this time.

"Lets see if I've got this! If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor. If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely. If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot. If you cross the Saudi Arabian illegally you will be jailed. If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again. If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed. If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown in a political prison to rot. If you cross the U.S. border illegally you get ... a job, a driver's license, social security card, welfare, food stamps, credit cards, subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house, free education, free health care, a lobbyist in Washington, billions of dollars' worth of public documents printed in your language, the right to carry your country's flag while you protest that you don't get enough respect and in many instances, you can vote. Just wanted to make sure I had a firm grasp on the situation!
