Honor rights of immigrants on Human Rights Day Dec. 10

We witness a government failing to muster the political will necessary to craft comprehensive immigration reform… And to our South, people die day-in-and-day-out, attempting to cross the border, in a desperate effort to earn a living for their impoverished families. What would Montesinos say today, regarding the treatment of these people?
