Choppy waters ahead

Dan Reinhard, Minot

One of the most disastrous maritime events in history happened on April, 15, 1912, when the “unsinkable” Titanic collided with an iceberg. Due to insufficient quantities of lifeboats that were available and half-filled to capacity when launched, only 710 passengers survived from the 2,224 passengers aboard that vessel.

However, if those lifeboats were not quickly rowed away from the sinking vessel and stayed near the site, they too would have been overloaded and sank or sucked into sea when the Titanic went down. As harsh as it seems, that is true.

Well, our “Great Ship” has also had its hull ripped open with the open door policy disaster at our southern borders. I’ve heard that approximately one million migrants will enter our country before a reasonable solution is enacted. Where do we find enough “lifeboats” for all those allowed to stay here?

The massive resettlement process should have one viable solution; distribute immigrants to our suburbs around the country for the following reasons:

1. There are better schools compared to the overcrowded cities

2. Better access to numerous medical facilities

3. Less crime and tenancy for migrants to form gangs as happened throughout our history

4. Easy access to shopping stores and businesses

5. Less crime (except in the areas that might promote defunding police departments)

6. Most individual wealthy members of our society

7. This segment of the country overwhelmingly voted for the present administration and should be the most accepting of this policy

There will be enormous cultural and economic challenges ahead, hope the captain plots the best course…
