    Though I love this diary, I think we could be more careful with words.

    I would limit the word 'immigrant' to people coming to the U.S. to settle.

    A smuggler, bringing in either people or drugs, has no intention of staying in the U.S., and is therefore not an 'immigrant.'

    This is semantics, but it is important. The violent crime is almost always done by criminals who come into the U.S., try to have very little contact with others and return across the border as quickly as possible.

    Harassing other Hispanics, whether they are undocumented or long-time citizens, because other brown people are involved in smuggling is pure racism.
