The UCSB CR’s with Susan Tully
On Tuesday, May 21st, the Santa Barbara county Young Republicans hosted their monthly meeting and it featured Susan Tully of FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Susan’s topic of discussion was immigration reform and she laid out all the costs behind legal and illegal immigration. She also talked about the “Gang of 8″ immigration reform bill currently being considered in the Senate and gave many reasons why it would be a bad law. For instance, if passed the bill would add trillions of dollars in costs to our social welfare system, destabilize our borders, and possibly increase crime rates. A lively discussion followed Susan’s presentation, with many people sharing their stories about immigration. One topic of debate was whether or not the problem had to do with our social welfare system and big government, or if immigration in itself was a problem.
