Central American strife needs to be verified

I'm getting sick and tired of reading all the bleeding heart stories in the papers that heap pity on the illegal aliens flooding across our Southern border.

They invariably focus on the notion that these illegals are fleeing a bad situation for the good life here in the USA.

Problem: Where are all the news stories of strife in Central America? What war? Which economic collapse?

Are those stories not being reported or simply not happening?

Of course their lives would be better here, but that status is relative (and fading fast).

We made this country the envy of the world by generations of hard work. Let's tighten up our border, send these illegals back home (where they can apply through proper channels) and not squander the greatness within our borders.
