A solution for the immigration problem

Print Article

As I watch the news about the wave of people approaching the United States and their intent to enter the U.S., through a non-legal process I canít but think there must be a solution to this problem. In the states, we have those who oppose the influx citing a number of reasons such as cost, deceases, gangs, etc. The opposing groups want to let everyone in, no matter what.

As I thought about this it occurred to me there is an answer. Should the group who wants to let them in, organize and enter into an agreement with the government I think we could resolve the issue. They could adopt the individuals, families, etc. and take the burden off the taxpayers. They could sign an agreement that they would be responsible for the financial and medical care of their new responsibility until age 26. They would be required to send their new family members to private schools, thus paying for their education. This would relieve a big burden on the medical industry and educational systems.

Some of you will think this is a really crazy idea but think about it. This is an issue that really divides our country. Our politicians have been incapable of dealing with this issue for many years. We have an untapped financial source with our Hollywood entertainers and sports stars that could really step forward with others and resolve this.
