The US is undoubtedly the greatest country in the world, but it still faces many tribulations. There is a flood of illegal immigrants pouring into the country. The liberal media bias has been distorting the news for years. All the while our Christian morals and values have been vanishing. These are three major problems facing our country today.
There are currently 9,000,000 illegal aliens living in the country 1. We are paying for this problem through increased taxes and diminished job opportunities for legal residents. For every 100 illegal aliens who find jobs in the US, 65 American workers are displaced 2. Each year more than a million illegal aliens will enter the US. Most of them are unskilled and uneducated. Many have medical problems such as tuberculosis and other diseases that are not typical in this country. .
These people are not only costing us money and jobs, they are also impacting our society. Every year, more than 72,000 illegals are arrested for drug offenses 2. More than 25% of all federal inmates are aliens. Witness the fact that one of the lead suspects in the Washington DC sniper shootings is an illegal alien. These numbers show the terrible social cost to our society. Those who come to this country illegally must hide in the shadows. It is difficult for them to assume a normal and open role helping our county to grow, and acquire the cultural values of those who are here legally.
Add to this a liberal media bias and the problems grow worse. It seems that most network news and major newspapers are always putting America down. They refuse to present the news in a balanced manner. This results in a country divided at a time when all Americans should support our president. The media is so hungry for news that they often seem to compromise the safety and secrecy of our forces. They are giving away military secrets to the terrorists every day. There seems to be an agenda in every major story.
