I agree but the two trillion in transition costs are not there. I do not know what the transition costs would be now, the two trillion was around 2000, but my guess is we don't have it laying around after a couple of wars and a few rounds of tax cuts.
It only gets more and more expensive each year. The longer we put it off, the more devastating it will be.
I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
The first US case is a man who was infected in Liberia, then flew to Texas to visit family. In my opinion, this is less of an immigration issue, and more an issue of not taking the disease seriously...
