That policy seems WAY extreme and not particularly productive or helpful to those who are struggling. Not a fan!

Sounds similar to Hawaii's roposed solution to their homeless problem - buying them a one-way ticket to the mainland. Doesn't solve anything, just passes it on to someone else. I wonder sometimes why anyone could possibly think these are good ideas!

That is very upsetting because people will resort to unsafe measures to take the weight off quickly. So that they can stay in the country.
