So under that logic, then it puts all at risk for the same treatment as is being given. These people, those who hold green cards, they have given up
everything to move to here, giving up all of their homeland. They have no home, yet we would treat them like trash, even though throughout the very
process to become a us citizen. That would require vetting and should not be given this kind of grief.
If a person is asked to pay taxes and obey the laws of the country, like those who are holders of Green Cards, then they should be afforded some of
the same rights and protections that the rest of those who live here are. Did you know, that a male who holds a green card, at the age of 18 to 25
are expected to sigh up for selective service, and can be drafted into the military, if they have no protections, when why should they even consider
defending a place they would call home?
And this gets even far worse, if you look at it, what about those who willingly served in the US Armed Forces, could be subject to deportation, should
we now treat people who were willing to put their lives on the line like trash? How about their families, while the soldiers are out fighting, they
deport a soldiers wife and child, is that correct as well?
While the concept may have some basis, however, the way it was carried out and implemented very poorly.
