In the national interest

How does this sort of thing benefit the USA in any way? Why is this woman, much less her family, permitted to enter the US at all?

Ms Valles, 21, fled Mexico in fear of her life, hustling her parents, sisters, husband and one-year-old son into a 4 x 4 vehicle and hurtling across the border to seek asylum in the United States. They left just in time. That night a squad of hit men arrived at their small bungalow and ransacked the rooms.

“I would like to go back home,” she said. “But if I hadn’t left my country I wouldn’t be alive now.”

In spite of her diminutive size and sweet, girlish manner, Ms Valles had some powerful and vicious enemies. The criminology graduate was appointed chief of police in the small town of Praxedis G Guerrero, 50 miles east of Ciudad Juarez and a few miles from the US border.

In other words, because one liberal female idiot is incredibly stupid, the USA is expected to financially support an entire family of Mexicans dumb enough to think that the drug cartels were going to be impressed by a young criminology graduate riding herd on them. How does this make any sense at all?

And how long will it be before the cartels simply start striking across the border?
