Where is compassion for citizens in border states?

I am writing in response to the plea (CR, May 6) for a “less hard-hearted approach” to dealing with immigration. Where is your compassion for the farmers, ranchers and other citizens in border states who are victims of crime and live in fear due to federal inaction to secure the border? A sovereign state has the obligation to protect its citizens and yet we stand and applaud a foreign head of state who comes here to show his contempt for our laws.
