Evidently, the United States is not the only one having concerns about immigration.
It seems that the issue has spread and become a global one, and now world leaders are seeking for solutions to resolve this problem once and for all.
Even though some immigrants are, undeniably, peaceful people who are just looking for a better place to live, some of them are dangerous terrorists, and radicals who are only interested in bringing terror and pain in the lives of innocent people.
President Donald Trump wanted to place the travel ban precisely for this reason, so it will prevent immigrants from coming to the United States. However, the majority of the Democrats condemned the President for this decision and blocked his executive order.
It looks like Bill Gates is able to see how big of an issue this is, and that is why he warned American citizens of the potential mess that the country could find itself in, if immigration isn’t taken under control.
According to the Microsoft founder, the President’s ban wasn’t such a bad idea. He pointed out that Europe was already overwhelmed by the large number of immigrants that are flooding their cities.
The solution that Gates suggested was that all world leaders should think of a way to make reaching Europe very difficult, so than that way immigrants will be discouraged, and at least to some extend, the problem will be solved.
As he spoke about the problem that Angela Merkel created, Gates said :
“On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this — which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa. Germany cannot possibly take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.”
What do you think about this?
Do you agree with Gates perspective?
