Instead of spending billions of dollars on stupid crap, how about we develop a boot that wont fall apart after 6 months of use. Or uniforms that dont disintigrate in the wash and arent completely useless in the Camoflage department.
From my point of view, I see a country already struggling to take care of its own systems set in place. Our schools are over burdened. Our health care system (from what I see on both sides) isnt functioning as smoothly as it should. Our citizens cant get along. And our government is just as divided. Im not against immigration. neither am I against immigration control. The real question that should be asked is "can we support these people?". Ive read alot of these posts saying that we shouldnt be the world police. Well it stands to reason we shouldnt be the worlds foster home (no pun intended) either. Its not wrong to want the best for your country. And to want well for your country is to want people that will contribute to our society. I dont know every single person immigrating into America, But I hope that they can pull their weight. I say instead of just letting everyone in, open the border and give everyone trying to enter an aptitude test! If they place well, give them a job or direct them towards job placements. If they dont place well, I honestly dont know. I dont know the situation well enough to make an educated guess about what to do with the rest.
