Petition: Address The Cause of Illegal Immigration, Not The Symptom
Trump’s integrated plans of building a border wall, hiring more border guards, and forming a task force to hunt for undocumented workers among us is throwing tens of billions of taxpayers dollars at the symptom, not the cause.
This will become a money pit with no end in sight.
Instead, let’s cancel these plans and use a fraction of that money to expand United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) by hiring more case workers, reducing wait times from as high as 17 years down to 17 months.
As new people seek to enter the United States, the ease of doing so legally under this new plan vs. the risks of doing so illegally will cause the problem to become a thing of the past.
Trump’s plan will spend, spend, spend on programs to mitigate the symptom, rather than strategically spend far less and address the cause. More legal citizens means more taxpayers, which means a lower tax burden on us all.
Sometimes doing the right thing to help others can help us too.
