Full Steam Ahead

perspective-perspectives[su_dropcap style=”flat”]W[/su_dropcap]ELL PEOPLE, here we are again with another load of what to do with the refugees that are pouring over the border in Greece. How long before there are more refugees that the original habitants of the small coastal communities? I understand their plight, they have nowhere to go, well they could stay and fight for their own city? It stands to reason that it is a unless situation, because the cities that they once knew are a pile of rubble. It now becomes a matter of better to flee than to die. The refugees have decided to take the low road, that is the one that offers the least resistant.

The problem of course has escalated in to a worldwide debacle. Where do these countries allocate the huge amount of refugees? The other problem is that ISIS is hiding amongst them, so as to cause damage. What is the solution? USA wants to add 100,000 of them to our shores. Can we afford to do this? I don’t think so, so where does that leave us? We can’t identify any of them, for most don’t have papers or any kind. Now comes the issue, what do we do with this wave of people? It seems to me that all of these countries that end up in conflict with their own government prefer to abandon their own country, and migrate to one that will give them, give them the necessities of life. These refugees did not just wake up one morning and they all decided to migrate/

This exodus had to have some what of plan. It kind of looks like the Cuban refugee of many years ago, it was easier to navigate to USA than to fight Fidel Castro. Now in all due the Cuban refugees have added to the economy and the overall wellbeing of Florida. Now, how will this migratory mass of refugees, affect the economy of those countries that are trying to settle them. If ISIS manages to do enough damage most countries are going to want to send them back. What happens if Syria gets settled and fixes its government, will the 2 million or so refugees make the pilgrimage back? I doubt it very much.

There need to be a system in place that will guarantee, or at least reduce the threat of a terror attack. Rest assured that there will by another attack, somewhere soon, Europe? Brazil? Wherever there is a large congregation of people, ISIS will be there to try to kill as many as possible. Rest assured that this will happen, either ISIS or a radical spur, or someone claiming to be ISIS. We the people no matter from what country have decided that candles, and masses will make the terror go away. During the war with Japan the USA rounded up all of those people of Japanese descent, if it was right or wrong it probably saved a lot of lives.

I don’t claim to have the answer to these problems, I do know that the President is ignoring the situation, and he is hoping that it will go away all by itself. It won’t, in fact it will only get worse. When the new President takes over he will have to address this concern, if you allow many thousands of refugees in without checking them, and a bomb goes off in a crowed airport or mall the President will have hell to pay, because he was aware of the problem and nothing was done to safe guards against it. It is bad enough that we have to contend with the Mexican government that sends its people over her illegally.

If building a wall will solve the problem, then by all means build it. The law is the law, all of those that live in the USA legally as a whole observe the law of the land. Yet certain people seem to think that it does not apply to them. (illegals) So what is the solution?
