A compassionate solution to the immigration problem

The immigrants gathered at the border waiting to get into the United States face an uphill battle.  They claim that they  are subjected to brutality by gangs and cannot live in that environment any longer.  Others claim that there is no credible proof (more than hearsay) that these conditions exist.  We also don’t know who, among these people are actually fleeing legitimate oppression and danger, those who want to gain access to America for the purpose of simply creating a better life for themselves, or, how many wish to gain access for illegal purposes.  Regardless of which camp they may fall into, here they are, and we’re a compassionate country. This proposal is simple, and, it can eliminate the need for a border wall.
