I am a true believer in the idea that surrounding one’s self with something can lead to a deeper understanding of it, which is why I am excited to go to Texas in a few days.  An issue like immigration cannot be settled or thoroughly understood from any place but a border itself.  Immigration has become a more relevant issue in politics and the news, which is why I was delighted to find an ASB trip to Texas.  I would like my trip to be educational as well as rewarding.  With an issue as relevant as immigration, my trip to Texas will be interesting to share hopefully for years to come with family and friends.  Few people get a chance to fully engage themselves in learning about an issue for which they are passionate.  However, I will use this experience to do just that and to share what I have learned with those equally as passionate because I know immigration will continue to be relevant to everyone living in the United States in the years to come.
