Elijah S. Pennsylvania

Mr. President

I would like to congratulate you on your induction into the office. It is a special honor and I wish you the best of luck. These are some foreign policy issues that I believe to be relevant and wish you to consider.

Dear Mr. President,

These are some of the foreign policies that I find pressing. First of all, I would like to address the ISIS threat that has loomed over the country. I believe that is essential to combat ISIS in some way, as almost all Americans do; I believe that U.S. troops should not be placed in danger and that more U.S. lives should not be risked. Although it is a growing problem I do not believe that we can risk American lives on the matter of ISIS. Also, since the Iran deal has become a very pushing issue in this election, I would like to ask the president to uphold this deal. I believe that the deal is for the best of the U.S. and it's people. Nuclear weapons are one of the biggest threats to anyone living currently on this planet. Immigration also becoming a very pressing issue with this new election coming around. I would first like to say that illegal immigration is wrong. That is why it is illegal. But I do not think we should build a wall, that would just be an expensive way of doing the same thing. Instead I think we need to find a way to make this problem less of a problem by being optimistic and finding a way to help those coming into this country. People can always be beneficial, and we need to find the benefits of those people. I do not think it right to isolate ourselves from everyone that we may fear because of their religion or traditional background. Please consider my points I have addressed above.

Thank you,

Elijah Spain
