  1. One important reason for orderly immigration is protecting the health of a country. If I visit another country as a tourist, my papers need to be in order to show that I have the proper vaccinations so that I don’t bring contagious disease into a country. I don’t think this is too much to ask for immigrants. TB, polio, VD, ibola and other health risks often come with immigrants whose countries have varying levels of health care, especially for their poor. How would you address this issue?

  2. They’re not protesting in front of City Hall. That’s the Police and Fire Headquarters on Centre City Parkway.
