For the past few days, President Trump has been catching flack for the immigration policies from all sides…liberals, religious figures, etc. Well, I urge you to stop a moment and think about the bans that he has authorized on refugees in the Middle East and his plan to deal with illegal immigrants. Believe me, I have no problem helping people who truly need it, but there are a few problems with how refugees and illegal immigrants have been handled recently. First, none of our laws have been enforced. Our laws, in regards to illegals, should be that if they’re caught, they’re deported, yet we reward them by allowing to not be prosecuted even if they have committed crimes, especially in sanctuary cities…it’d be a whole different story if those laws were enforced. With the refugees, ISIS has explicitly said that they will exploit the issues with vetting Syrian and other refugees so that they can cause chaos. Now, the liberals keep complaining that you have to help these people, but I believe that not keeping track of who comes into this country won’t help anyone. Let me give you all an analogy: the reason conservatives want a temporary ban is because these problems with refugees and illegal aliens is like a leaky faucet. It is common sense that to fix a leaky faucet, you turn off the faucet, fix the leak, then turn everything back on–and everything works as good as new. The way I see it, not properly vetting anyone who comes here and not enforcing our immigration laws will do no good to not just American citizens but won’t help refugees or other immigrants that come here…legal or illegal. If we do not properly vet people who come here, it is much more likely that terrorists disguised as refugees or criminal illegal immigrant aliens will get into our country and cause harm to citizens and anyone who has come here for the right reasons. They won’t care who’s who. So, in my opinion, if you want to be kind and help refugees and other immigrants, you have to enforce the laws and vet people properly. After all, you wouldn’t want people who escaped bad things where they came from (be it terrorism, crime, extortion, war, etc.) to encounter it where they have found asylum.
