Do the resources of the United States government exist for the benefit of Americans or for the benefit of the world? This is a simple question that needs to be answered now, because it seems that any time any event – be it weather, poverty, or war – breaks out in any part of the world, the answer is always immigration, and it’s always to be brought to just one country – the United States.
It’s very easy to flash pictures of the devastation in parts of the Bahamas and point to the need to bring them here to America. But as always, virtue-signaling is not public policy, especially when the recipients are foreign nationals and they are coming at the expense of the United States government. Nobody is asking some of the obvious questions before volunteering the American people to go along with this plan, against our immigration laws:
Are we vetting these people?
What about the public charge? Who is paying for their stay, and where would they stay? Will they receive work permits?
How can we ensure that they will not remain here indefinitely like hundreds of thousands have done since the 1990s when we began granting amnesty to people from all over the world who experienced natural disasters in their home countries?
Will we grant them birthright citizenship for their babies too?
Why aren’t other countries pitching in?
Don’t we have many other obligations and other humanitarian crises related to mass migration?
