I’m going to be really honest with you. I haven’t been looking forward to today because of what’s going on. While I might be against illegal immigration, it doesn’t mean that I do not like immigrants. I just find it unfair that so many others waited years and years upon getting citizenship the right way, and some people cheated their way in.
There are plenty of countries that have hardships and some have been having them for hundreds of years. Migration can be great, but countries must never be left vacant of citizens to carry on with their legacies. Each country has something beautiful about it and if the citizens of those countries give up on their place of birth, it will leave a void.
With that being said, I do not like what’s going on today in regards to immigration. I feel like we are taking a page from Hitler’s playbook. There has to be a sensible way of keeping the law without inflicting pain on people. It is okay to disagree about how we feel on certain subjects, but think about the trauma that will play out today on each and every house that sees the removal of a person. We should never want to see trauma inflicted upon any human in any nature. Surely, we can secure the border without causing pain and destruction.
Take adoption of example, many people would love to adopt children. However, if money problems prevent people from taking care of people within their family, does it make sense to adopt? Before you can help anyone you have to get your own home in order. I fear that we are going to see California burst if it doesn’t learn how to deal with the problems such as taking care of their citizens.
Homelessness is a real issue and one of the main issues when it comes to living in California. California has a high cost of living. I recall living there in the early 2000’s when gas prices were making life hell on earth for many of us. States should be able to take care of their citizens and nobody in America should feel like they are living in a third world country. According information written by the California State Auditor, California has the most homeless people in America. The entire report can be found here. https://www.auditor.ca.gov/pdfs/reports/2017-112.pdf
One would have to wonder how offering free healthcare to millions of people will impact their already fragile economic standing. I love the fact that California has given us some of the most vocal minds and voices in trying to help bring awareness to poverty and one of my favorites happens to be Duchess of Sussex. I am a super fan!
However, I fear that their current lack of knowledge in terms of handling their homeless crisis will grow in the near future. It would be one thing if these people were getting help, but they aren’t getting help. They are stuck in a situation that doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Some could even argue that the Three Strike Law was nothing more than a means of controlling the population, but I won’t go there.
