Cutting away "The American Dream"

This Forbes Article from September 12th 2017, written by Nathaniel Parish Flannery covers many topics, all somehow related to Trump's immigration laws and wall to ban central Americans to illegally immigrate to the country. Lack of opportunity, low economy and violence are pushing residents of these countries out of their homes on a search for a chance at a better life. Stopping immigration from these countries is letting these poor people in the worst situations and keeping them from being the best versions of themselves in a country where they have opportunities and a real future.
I have recently visited Honduras earlier this summer and after seeing and experiencing what life is like in these countries I understand why some are striving for better. The danger is everywhere in the country and the less fortunate have to watch out for themselves 100% of the time. If these people were given a real chance at a great life like we have here there would be much less struggle and more happiness and overall less poverty.Banning central Americans from immigrating to America is taking a lot away from them. Most of these people just dont have the financial ability to apply and obtain American citizenship. We should not let them in illegally but rather make it easier for the people who are coming for good reasons.Its a very hard subject and there are many sides to consider but it is completely unfair to build a wall and treat them like they are less than people.
