England has a drug smuggling and illegal immigration problem.... and they're on an Island....
Poor England can’t really build a wall. We can!!!
Yeah. We could. It wouldn't work. It sends the wrong message. It's not who we are as a nation. The rule of the minority.... again.
The point being a nation. Borders designate you as a nation. Open borders designates a non-nation. I, as a citizen, not earning enough to provide health care for myself, am still denied health care by my country, for 8 of the last 10 years. At the same time an illegal alien can.
I hope you can qualify for some coverage with Medicaid or Medicare if you don't get insurance thru your employer. That's really not right. That's the main reason I'm still working and I've been working since 1981. Illegal aliens do not qualify for any of this programs. They go ER
The no insurance was the response from Medicaid. I was making $11,000 and denied several times.
That's so infuriating! In what state do you live?
They also have been openly accepting refugees and immigrants on a much larger basis for years. That’s where their problem is.
700,000 travelers to the USA overstayed their visas in 2017. The DHS estimates than more than 600,000 of those travelers are still in the USA. I see a problem right there. Do you?
There were also approximately 10.7 million “unauthorized” immigrants living in the US in 2016, which means less than 20% were because of overstayed visas.
I'm not sure about that. This Visa overstaying problem has been going on for a long time and then we have the people who don't need a visa to come in, the Visa Waiver Program that includes over 30 countries, so we have a whole bunch of Canadians and Europeans taking advantage
I admire your thoughts but England is not an island.
Erm I live here..... pretty sure we’re an island!!!!!!!
Nope. Scotland and Wales- remember those countries?
Let's say I live in Kings County. It borders Queens County. Next to Nassau County next to Suffolk County. They all make up Long Island. I feel pretty confident that Kings County (AKA Brooklyn) is on an island called Long Island.
That's England not the U. S. A. #MAGA
Oh! We don't have a drug smuggling problem? Just the Brits? Good to know!
The Brits government has an open door policy. Fairly obvious and it’s working well for them isnt it? How about Germany and France?
Well, that's their prerogative. I'm sure they're very much divided about that. The problem are the points of entry That's where the drug smuggling happens. This is true here in the USA as well. And the people overstaying visas make up a large chunk of illegal immigrants
They're not on an island? They don't have such problems? What?
