It’s time to close the loopholes on immigration

Print Article

The current immigration problems the U.S. is experiencing are the result of the open border policy thatís been practiced for decades. Itís time to make changes and close the loopholes. Asylum and sanctuary must be granted or approved only by federal authority. Asylum should only be granted under the direst of circumstances, not for economic reasons.

The poor detainee conditions are the result of extreme overcrowding of border facilities. The result of the avalanche of refugees pouring illegally across borders. A barrier must be constructed at the border to prevent illegal entry. Emphasis must be placed on speedy processing and deportation of illegal aliens. The use of military transports should be considered, including Navy transports.

The immigration problem has exploded to gargantuan proportions because Congress has deliberately avoided the problems for decades. Itís time Congress quit dodging the issues and corrected our immigration problems, instead of the constant political bickering between the political parties. The political parties should be abolished!!

Itís time the Democrats ended their Trump investigation (witch hunt), enough time and taxpayer money has been wasted on their vendetta. Itís become a continuation of their constant presidential harassment.
