Americans in general are not good at assessing real threats and issues. We’re easily distracted by minor BS like helmets on bike riders and locking babies in hot cars.
The GOP gets it wrong about immigration. They can’t see real threats or real benefits to immigration. And of course they easily forget that we are a nation built by immigrants; one which needs new blood to sustain ourselves.
the real threat is that our border agencies spend so much time tracking down people who want to be gardeners that they don’t have the resources to track down the people who want to be suicide bombers.
The solution is…
It’s to work on our legal immigration system — make the system ample and streamlined enough so that most people come here in the right way, in a way they can be vetted.
Admit more skilled immigrants and fewer unskilled ones.
