Central American refugees are once again pouring toward our southern border. Yes, we need immigrants, and yes, this nation was built by immigrants but most of these refugees are coming from countries with problems that are self-imposed. Some of their economic problems are weather-related but that’s short term. For the long term, their economies can’t produce enough jobs for their birth rate. Some have birth rates twice what ours is.
Our country, as well as other countries and charitable organizations, give aid to Central America. We feed school kids their lunches, we teach farmers how to farm better yet because they see the Biden administration as being willing to accommodate them they are headed here again by the thousands.
We need to figure out quickly how to deal with this yet another problem for this country. Is it wise to bring in thousands more refugees when we can’t handle our own population of poor and homeless? We need to help these countries deal with their own problems and not make it more of a problem for us. To help them build up their economies and teach them how to sustain a growth rate that their economies can support? We’re not helping them or ourselves by taking in all that want to come here.
