“Our government and the people need to focus on healing ourselves and becoming one nation again, and the only way we can do that is if we slow down immigration”
South Brunswick, NJ
I know its unpopular opinion, but I’m pro wall. It won’t fix the problem of illegal immigration, but it will help in minimizing it. I think that stricter more ridged immigration laws will be beneficial for America. Right now our country is all topsy-turvy; it’s chaotic. Our government and the people need to focus on healing ourselves and becoming one nation again, and the only way we can do that is if we slow down immigration and with that outside influences. I understand that the wall is not an end to all our problems. I know that illegal immigration from Mexico is only a small part of a much bigger problem. We have illegal immigrants coming from all over the world. Most people who are coming here are just looking for a better life, I get that. But there is no valid reason why they cannot do it legally. It’s a long road to become a legal citizen, I get that, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Better to ask and be told no then to get arrested for being illegal.
When it comes to the repeal of the DREAM Act, I’m neither here nor there. It’s a really tricky situation. On one hand, these kids have been here their whole lives and are just trying to live like any normal American citizen. Some of them don’t even know that they are illegal until much later in life. It’s sad, because these kids didn’t ask to be illegal aliens in (what they know as) their home country. On the other hand, they are here illegally and that needs to be dealt with. So when it comes to the DREAM act, I really don’t know.
