We must ensure that there are proper protocols in place so those who do enter are here for the right purpose and have met general qualifications and who are not criminal in nature.

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
There are some national security issues that involve domestic terrorism and are fueled by those who would propose these are race related. Generally the Democrat party uses race to fuel division and hatred across racial lines. I am Native American/Hispanic however I do not see racism has a great threat to domestic security. Racism is alive and well for sure but in Christian spheres of influence it is something that Scripturally is highly unacceptable.
