This could be interpreted by a call for more open borders, or authorities looking the other way in certain circumstances. My idea of compassion? Giving coyotes and drug dealers less opportunities to deal in human trafficking and slavery (less people crossing a protected border is bad for business); giving corrupt employers less incentive to exploit illegal workers; and letting fewer violent criminals into our country. But what do I know?

The real story, of course, is how the Clipper has again edited one of my toons, but this time the whole meaning has been lost by the change:
