“We definitely have to focus on us and fixing what’s broken in our own country before we can worry about helping other people.”
Clinton, NJ
We have to help ourselves before we help others at this point. I can see both sides of the immigration debate. I understand why we would and would not choose let people in. I want to help people and to have the ability to help people who are in bad situations in other countries, but I feel like at the same time we’re in a bad situation as a country right now. There have been a lot of massacres, natural disasters, and political upheaval. We definitely have to focus on us and fixing what’s broken in our own country before we can worry about helping other people. Sometimes I wonder why anyone would want to come here, because of all the chaos in America right now.
I know America is in a much better situation, politically and economically, then where the refugees are coming from. I don’t think they realize that we as a country have a lot of our own substantial issues to work on at the moment, and that we could probably use the resources were putting towards immigration to fix other more pertinent issues. A lot of people come from a humanitarian side were they say, ‘Oh, we have to help people” and we do have to help and we should want to, but there’s a line where we have to worry about helping ourselves too.
