More and more European countries are wising up and putting a stop to mass migration. Italy is a case in point where mass migration of Africans into Italy has gone from 180,000 a year to just 3,000, and this is a direct result of the government taking action to prevent it.
So one can easily make the argument that Trump’s attempt to limit mass migration from Mexico and Central America is far from unusual. In fact, it is the clear trend internationally. Countries just don’t want to be swamped by masses of poor immigrants. It’s that simple.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
