Immigration comes down to wanting a better life

It all comes down to this: We want the best for ourselves and our families. To get it, most of us will do what is necessary to put food on the table, to sleep in a warm bed, to protect and educate our children so, perhaps someday, they can do better. If, to provide such security, you must cross borders, take what work is available and dedicate every moment to this goal, you will do this. As hard as it may be for many of us to imagine such need, we can certainly look at our lives and loved ones and know to what lengths we will go for them. Unless we have faced the hardships of the immigrants and refugees in our country, how can we judge their motivations? We are all ultimately working for the same thing.
