Christy Shaw, the Member Services Manager for immigration restriction group NumbersUSA, recently penned a piece highlighting Latin American countries latest moves to restrict migration.
She alluded to a piece by Andrew Selee, President of The Migration Policy Institute, discussing how mass migration is changing in the Caribbean and Latin America.
One of the most notable mass migration waves has been the one coming from Venezuela. Thanks to economic destabilization brought about by its government’s socialist policies, Venezuela has experienced an unprecedented refugee crisis. So far, 4.5 million Venezuelans have escaped to neighbors in South America. Additionally, thousands of Nicaraguans are fleeing their country due to economic insatiability and political repression.
Selee noted the following in his articles:
As a result of these shifts, many Latin American and Caribbean countries find themselves having to develop coherent immigration policies to respond to significant inflows… increasingly, governments have started imposing tighter requirements for entry.
It is interesting how foreign governments can casually implement immigration restriction, but the U.S. immediately gets attacked when it even floats the idea of attempting to control its borders. In her piece Shaw argued “that similar efforts to reform and tighten our own U.S. immigration system is completely demonized. Bottomline, a responsible U.S. immigration system sets a powerfully positive example for other countries to follow, and many countries have stricter immigration laws than the United States!”
Although there are legitimate causes for people to pursue refugee status, countries ultimately have national interests and constraints. They simply can’t accept everyone and allow for destabilizing levels of migrants to come in.
Countries like Colombia and Chile have already had to make immigration reforms because of the large influx of Venezuelans and other migrant groups to their respective countries. The U.S. should take note and actually begin to restrict migration given how its promoted mass migration since 1965.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
