The biggest problem we face today is citizens lacking historic facts and the Constitution when it comes to all government problems. Government is not the solution. Government is the problem.
We will never fix the immigration problem until border security is a priority. Border security is bigger than just immigration reform. It is a matter of national security and keeping the drug cartels from causing crime in our border states.
Congress caused the real immigration problem when they passed a new law in 1965 to allow the immediate family members of immigrants to become U.S. citizens.
During the first 200 years of our great country, we averaged 200,000 new immigrants into the United States. From 1946 to 1970, we averaged 255,000 new immigrants. From 1990 until present, we have averaged 1 million legal and 1 million illegal to enter the United States. With this population boom, “We the People” are paying double the taxes for schools, roads, welfare, etc. Wake up, America!
