UK asylum seekers getting out of hand.
This article is a great representation of what happens to a country with open borders and a massive system of entitlements, all paid for by the working class of course. The UK has seen a dramatic rise in those seeking "asylum", including some Americans. These people are then given free healthcare, free accommodations and a weekly government stipend and they aren’t even UK citizens.
They continue to receive these entitlements while they’re asylum application is reviewed which gives them ample time to blend into the populace. If the request is rejected, rarely do they get evicted or deported. Apparently, the word has gotten out and the UK is being inundated with these people. Obviously, it has and will continue to take its toll on the economy and the tax payers. Not only that, but there is very little background checking, which means that this is not only a social threat but also a national security threat.
Next month we will elect a new Congress and you’d better believe that if the Left takes over, this is the direction we will be heading. There will be nothing done about the border, entitlements will increase and, as a result, so will taxes. In the end, we will be paying for non-citizens to come to America to leech off of our hard work. Sound good to you? I say no thanks. Hopefully, America agrees.
But my concern is that the average American is not very well informed politically. They hear the soundbites on CNN or CBS and base their vote on that. They have no idea what a Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi would mean for this country’s future. They have no idea what a "cut and run" policy in Iraq would do to our national defense. And they certainly have no idea how high our taxes will go with the Left in office.
