Thank you Rosa. I am willing to sign a letter from our group. I'm glad you put this in perspective of health welfare and safety. This is situation is untenable. After reading this article, I contacted my congressman. I'm not sure how we can live in a society that allows this to go on. Lois Vitt Sale, FAIA

Please do not allow the AIA to get involved in a divisive issue where most of the information being disseminated is larger untrue, politicized and/or agenda driven. The attached photo is real. It shows horse-back mounted law enforcement officers arresting 4 of 6 illegal immigrants after tracking them with dogs. I can confirm this is real because it happened on my ranch. My property is 190 miles to the Texas-Mexico border. These suspects were later identified as known gang members from El Salvador. Do not let the AIA tarnish its reputation and divide its members by taking sides in non-productive discussion on the border crisis. The crisis is real. Criminals are using the U.S. justice system to push people. All the while they are smuggling drugs at other locations since law enforcement is being overwhelmed at the border. The lack of control on our southern border t is jeopardizing many lives. Potentially it is jeopardizing the lives of my family. If you have not actually come seen the reality for yourself, I would suggest that you reserve judgement about the information being shared on the national news. If the AIA becomes a pawn of one party or another, it will not help the profession. It will not help the immigrants. It will not facilitate solutions to real problems. If the AIA is to become involved, I would suggest that it be part of a real solution, not just another crowd of outraged folks with opinions.
