Immigration reform? Let’s get serious.

“Haitian Poverty” shows children with distended stomachs which is a sure sign of malnutrition and famine. When faced with life and deaths choices desperate people are forced into taking desperate measures. “We’re Coming to America” illustrates more of the long term effects of poverty passed from generation to generation.
“…Got a dream to take them there, They’re coming to America, Got a dream they’ve come to share, They’re coming to America….” “America” –Neil Diamond
