Dear Future President,

It has come to my attention that terrorism, domestic and from overseas, is becoming an epidemic. It makes me worry about my older brother in the military, and my family at home. In this past year we have had plenty of shootings happen in the U.S. Most have been done by people who have pledged their lives to Isis. It angers me on how little the current president has done to help in this fight against terrorism. Please, as the President of the United States of America, take time to read what I have written.

When watching the news I have noticed that they don’t cover every single attack. Is it because we are becoming numb to this subject? When one of these attacks happens I grieve for the ones who lost their lives and the families who have to go through losing a loved one. I have seen people blame terrorism on one group of people, race, or religion. I don’t think that is the case, but many of Americans do think that. The people of the U.S. love to blame when an act of terrorism happens and that is wrong. People also get the urge to profile people because these attacks are happening.

The root of the problem of terrorism is overseas. No one who lives in America who is a true American hates to have pride in their country and act violently towards their fellow Americans. Let’s face it our borders are weak, our military is weak, even the people of the U.S are weak. Instead of taking in immigrants maybe we should put our resources towards helping the homeless and our veterans. We must not let these people into this great country who want to do harm to us and weaken us more and more.

Most of these attackers have been immigrants who got through our weak borders. In San Bernardino, In the club in Florida, these are just two of many examples of immigrants in our country striking fear into our fellow Americans. Don’t put stricter laws on guns, put stricter laws on immigration to protect the American people.

My call to action is to strengthen our borders and military. This will raise moral of the American people and make us think we have a fighting chance, we won’t go down fighting. We need that mentality. That fight till your last breath mentality. Our country was built upon that and I sure hope that this country lives on our goes down with that idea in mind. Check no fly lists, look into family history, what the person did before coming to America. This could save American lives and show the ones who want to harm us we are not a country to be fooled with.

We shall overcome this threat to the U.S. and strengthen our borders and raise our military to a higher standard. Thank you Mr. or Mrs. President for reading what I have written.
