Some people believe that Puerto Ricans should stay because the economy will improve, but for the past few years the economy has been decreasing. Trying to pay the huge debt the government has taken decisions that have damaged the individual economy.

Had I decided to become a Muslim, would I too be deported from the country I was born in? If I chose to make the homage to the city of Mecca, would I be denied entrance to The US come my return? Donald Trump truly does have some egotistic problems, but the concept of building a wall on our Mexican border, really may be a good move for the US to make.

Trump’s immigration plan proposes reforms that “[put] the needs of working people first,” and brings us in line with the rest of the world in putting the needs of our own nation above the needs of other nations (Trump). However, the popular opinion on immigration isn’t always factually correct in its assertions. Since Trump’s immigration reform is based on and shaped towards public opinion, his reform is then, by extension, not always correct. Since Trump is currently a front-runner in the presidential elections, voters need to be aware of the truth of the matter to make an informed decision.

With the contributing factors of how the taxes should be taken care of, certain healthcare programs draining the little money the government has to offer, government welfare programs not being more supervised by not allowing people to take advantage of it, and lastly not allowing the government to borrow so much money from foreign countries to make our debt rise to the
