Fleeing U.S. sanctions, without the sanctions these places would be Paradises. Haiti, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Dominican Republic are also fleeing their countries...

Volunteer programs work well if they are managed well.

Socialism does not work. Never has. So, if they would leave socialism at the border of the country they come from, they would get less resistance. Especially if they would come legally.

In all fairness, I know some people who are here illegally. They do not take handouts because they would rather work. They are good people (as far as people go) and I know plenty of citizens who expect others to care for their every need. I would like to keep some of the illegals and send some of the citizens to the socialist countries they love so much.

Lots of Venezuelan restaurants in Doral. You know there is such a thing as Venezuelan pizza? True. Same shape, but different cheese and they throw a ton of ham on it.

Maybe we could start an exchange program. We could take the business owners and the bank managers and productive, former middle-class people who work for a living in Venezuela and send them all of our people who want socialism. It sounds like a win-win!!!

Justin Amash, one the only constitutionalist congressmen we have, is the son of refugees. I'm not saying there aren't problems with our immigration system, but the notion that immigrants are all monsters out to destroy our society just isn't true. Examples of good immigrants need to be shown just as much as examples of bad immigrants.
