For today’s United States, immigration problems are a “hard issue” that harms the image of Americans as a compassionate people. The Democratic and Republican parties are dealing with the immigration crisis in different ways. This is clearly seen in the situation on the southern border of the United States, where migration pressure is felt most strongly.
The administration of former US President Donald Trump has pursued a policy of preventing illegal migrants from entering the United States, starting the construction of a wall on the southern border. However, with the advent of the new Democrat President Joe Biden, the wall project was curtailed and a stream of illegal immigrants poured into the country from all over South America.
With the advent of the new administration, cases of children abandoned at the border have also become more frequent. The problem causes controversy among citizens, dividing them into two camps. Some feel sorry for the children and accuse all those who resent the situation as racist, while others worry that such an influx of migrants will quickly deplete the country’s resources, and that illegal migrant children are “stealing the future of American children and legal migrants.”
According to myom, Americans are indignant because the flow of migrants contributes to the penetration of drugs into the country, human trafficking and the development of cartel business. Also, the Democratic Party is accused of seeing migrants as those who will vote for the Democrats in the future.
