Resources On Border Issues
We all have a vested interest in the well-being of our fellows.
Opinions can vary on how best to care for all, but opinions should be based upon a wide-ranging survey of the available facts and history. Personally, I’d be delighted if you agree with me. But it’s far more important to our nation and the world that you pursue the facts and come to your own conclusions. Here are some valuable resources on-line, on the page, and on screen.
