Unfettered immigration tramples on the rights of American citizens and destroys its fragile institutions. Development is not development if problems aren't quickly resolved. These problems place more demand on America's infrastructure as America becomes the lifeboat to the world. Allowing free reign and spending older American's social security on people who have never worked one day on American soil is criminal. We need to take care of our elderly,disabled, and soldiers and ensure their comfortable retirement before we offer our medical and financial services freely to the world. Forcing millions intto poverty and medical apartheid is not development. Its a crime. Americans need their rights restored.

This is a wonderful idea . Many people in the US don't understand our public diplomacy. I think this will be a great opportunity to help Americans understand the process better.
