. . .but, water drive?
So, I was enjoying my quiet day at work. The only story I'd shot before lunch was about a water drive. Yeah, I didn't understand it either until it was explained.
Illegal immigrants who try to cross the desert are dying from lack of water. In an effort to save lives, water is being collected and placed in locations where the illegal immigrants can find it. To me, it feels like this is helping people to break the law. . .
. . .but when you see the faces of the people who might die without the water, it becomes less an issue of law and more an issue of conscience.
I'll let the politicians figure out what can be done. I don't have much hope that the immigration issue is going to be solved any time soon. There's too many votes to be gained or lost at election time to actually solve the problem. In the meantime, if saving even one innocent life is the result of the water drive, I got no problem with that.
Plus, I don't even know if this story ran last night. If I had to guess, I'd say, it didn't. We had that high-speed pursuit thing going on for a good part of the evening.
