First, when we take actions to influence the government of others, we need to have plans in place that address both short term and long term consequences of our actions. It appears that our country has contributed to Venezuela’s problems and we need to take responsibility to provide humanitarian TPS status to those effected. Secondly, people coming here legally are expected to learn about the way our government is supposed to work. They are better educated in ‘American ideals’ and ‘American civics’ than much of our population- and become a direct threat to the rich and powerful who would rather not be challenged. They prefer less-educated masses who are much easier to mislead with slogans, half truths and media-marketing spiels. That’s why the wealthy don’t want immigrants coming here.
