A roundup is a gathering of scattered persons or things. Among these persons are career criminals.

Now is the time for a roundup of undocumented immigrants who have criminal records.

Time is not on our side if we expect to get a handle on this deadly cancer growing in our nation. People’s lives are on the line, so we are dying a little bit every single day. When yet another example of one of these atrocious crimes occurs, the proof is in the pudding.

If we are to survive as a nation, law and order must be the means that justify a nationwide roundup of those who do anything criminal to undermine our way of life. I believe that we have the will, but do we have the backbone to do the heavy lifting required?
