America has a habit of adopting bad policies.

I was against the Iraq War; now I am against punishing immigrants. I thought attacking Iraq was like removing a whole organ for spots of cancers; it was just going to weaken the region and cause the hate "cancer" groups to spread even more.

Instead of removing the whole organ attacking Iraq, pinpoint military operations would be the way to go. That's like using pinpoint laser operations on an organ to kill spots of cancers and keep the cancer patient's body healthier in the process.

Now we are punishing immigrants, and it will cause huge unwanted consequences for our nation a generation from now.

We must address severe poverty and violence in South American countries. Stop punishing immigrants; otherwise the U.S. will pay in the long run. Let's don't adopt bad policies yet again.
