There must be lim­its on im­mi­gra­tion

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The “unsink­able” Ti­tanic sank on its maiden voy­age in 1912. The ship had 20 lifeboats that could ac­com­mo­date 1,178 peo­ple, but had 2,208 pas­sen­gers and crew on board.

If the cap­tain in­sisted all 2,208 pas­sen­gers be al­lowed to board the in­ad­e­quate num­ber of life boats then in all prob­a­bil­ity ev­ery­one would have drowned.

Though I have great em­pa­thy for all of those not al­lowed to board the in­ad­e­quate num­ber of lifeboats, lim­it­ing the num­ber of pas­sen­gers to board was the right de­ci­sion.

Like­wise, con­trol­ling the num­ber of im­mi­grants to en­ter the United States is anal­o­gously the right de­ci­sion as well.
