There shouldn’t be a border crisis if laws were being enforced.
Why do so many people think that defending our border is a bad thing? Nations have been doing it for centuries to protect their sovereignty. It shouldn’t be a political issue at all.
Those caught crossing the border illegally or those awaiting a decision on their status should be made to either return to their country of origin, voluntarily, or put on work details to cover their food and lodging until a decision is reached.
NO minor children should be allowed into the country until their legal guardian has been approved for a visa.
President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would have to mobilize more of the military at the U.S. border with Mexico after listening to stories about migrants crossing the border from people attending a Republican fundraiser.”I’m going to have to call up more military,” Trump said.
The president said some of the people crossing the border were ending up dead from the journey on Americans’ ranches. He interrupted his discussion with Republican donors to bring in reporters to listen to the stories about the border.
“Many, many dead people,” Trump said, referring to migrants who he said had died after making the journey. “Also they come in and raid their houses, and it’s very dangerous,” Trump said, referring to locals affected by the influx of migrants. [Newsmax]
While I empathize with most of the people coming, we already take in half of all the world’s migrants, and our share also has lower education and poorer job skills. We need to stop offering any welfare to any migrant period.
If they cannot be self-supporting, then we need to say no. Legal immigration attracting skilled and educated people, on the other hand, are an asset to this country. Most of us do not care where they come from as long as they are law-abiding, willing to adapt, and will contribute here. Anyone giving this a thumbs down needs to tell us all in your reply how realistically you can pay for these people.
Fair.org last year noted illegals cost taxpayers $135 billion while only contributing $22 billion. Those responding do not hide behind this is a race thing because it is not; it is an economic reality.
President Trump is not going to lose this battle, and he will use everything at his disposal to assure that. It is not military might that is our problem; it is the mushy stuff that liberals like to throw out, like a humanitarian crisis, children being separated from their parents, a kid dying in border control care, poor migrants just trying to seek asylum, etc., etc.
