In June 2000, 58 illegal Chinese immigrants were found dead in a sealed area of a truck, smothered by heat and lack of air during a five-hour journey to Britain. It was said that the victims had died “a most terrible death.” Similar situations occur frequently as illegal Mexicans cross the U.S. border, often locked in small, airless vehicles, and as Cubans traverse stormy waters in poorly equipped boats. Who do you think is to blame for these situations? Is it the desperate immigrants, the crime syndicates that provide the transportation, a rigid immigration system, a public attitude of hostility toward immigration, or a global economic system that permits poverty in one country alongside prosperity in another? Defend your answer.
