Do not succumb to immigrant fears

I agree with what Donald Trump has to say when it comes the problems in our country right now from illegal immigration to terrorism and other issues.

I don’t agree, however, with some of his proposed plans if he is elected as the next president of the United States. His proposal for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States is an example of what happens when our country succumbs to fear after an attack on our country.

After Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the U.S government relocated thousands of Japanese-Americans on the West Coast. Over half of those who were relocated were U.S. citizens. We as a country should not succumb to fear after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino.
