The terrible Paris terror attacks seem to indicate the United States is next unless we reverse our immigration policies. A good start would be not taking any Syrian immigrants.
The pro-immigration outfits are lobbying public opinion to bring in more immigrants. They say that America was built on immigrants. This includes the Chamber of Commerce; some Republican elected officials are leaning toward amnesty, along with church groups like the Evangelical Immigration Table. Our own Sen. Lindsay Graham and Gov. Nikki Haley were advocates for bringing more Syrian immigrants to South Carolina.
National security and local crime need to be considered. The Sept. 11 killers who crashed the aircraft into the twin towers were part of the undocumented alien community. During my term on the state Parole Board, I discovered that drug crimes among immigrants is widespread.
Then there is the cost to the taxpayers. Our hospitals, welfare agencies, law enforcement and public schools are being overwhelmed by undocumented immigrates. The Heritage Foundation estimates the long-term cost of amnesty for illegal immigrants is $6.3 trillion.
We need to elect a president who will reverse the disastrous American immigration policies.
