There have been two main reports of why the increase in immigrants that have flooded our Southern border. It may be that both are reasons.

We know the immigrants, especially the younger ones, have fled Central America through Mexico for safety in the United States. Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, head of the U.S. military’s Southern Command, who has been following the immigration situation for some months, said illegal drug conditions have made a number of countries unsafe. Americans want drugs, have the money to buy them, and the drug runners push their illegal products through Mexico to America. Violence has resulted from drug cartels. The governments in the Central American countries are weak due to corruption and unable to protect their people.
