Australia’s Anti-Illegal Immigration Plan That The US Could Learn From

In a new plan to combat illegal immigration and people smuggling, the Australian government has released a new photo and ad campaign that the federal government could definitely learn a thing or two from.

For months, the US has been dealing with the Southern border crisis, where thousands of illegal immigrants and unaccompanied alien children are crossing the southern border. Illegal immigrants have been flooding southern states, coming from countries like Guatemala and Honduras.

Currently, there are roughly 1,650 unaccompanied alien children in Louisiana. That huge influx of illegal minors to the state will likely cost taxpayers $7 million, if not more, to educate them just in the 2014-2015 school year.
