American policy toward Latin America caused the border crisis [Letter]

Like everything else in life, nothing is perfect. I've heard from blues, reds and people without political color saying this or that is the way to handle illegal immigration.

Some favor it, some don't, but when I hear or read their opinions I don't hear them saying let's give them residence including all the legal rights of citizenship.

Illegal immigration is the result of long-standing U.S. foreign policy mistakes regarding Latin America, but that's is a very touchy subject for most Americans.
