4. Recommending Legislation

5. Veto Power

Executive: 1,2,3,9,10

We think that the veto power is the most important because if the President doesn't agree on a bill or law, he can make sure that it doesn't become a law.

Leadership Qualities

-Decision Making (2)- It's an important trait because you would have to make tricky and challenging decisions that not only affect yourself but also affects the whole country.

-Conflict Resolution (4)- It's an important trait because there will be conflicts between the different parties and it has to be resolved one way or the other.

-Inspiring Vision(6)- It's an important trait because the president has to see both sides in the situation but he can't just pick one side or the other it has to be a generalized decision.

-Trust (9)- It's is an important trait because the president needs the trust of the entire country.

Our Issue

1. Our issue is immigration and illegal immigrants entering the United States. Mexicans make up 49% of all immigrants in the United States (California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and Illinois) Unauthorized immigrants make up 5.1% of the U.S. labor force. In K-12 schooling, 7% of the students have at least one authorized immigrant parent. In 1965 Congress passed the immigration and Nationality Act. As a result of this act, the nation experienced a shift in immigration patterns.

2. If we were president, we would go to the most populated states of immigration and increase the guards and police throughout the state. We would also put up walls and watch the borders more carefully. We would use the veto power to veto anything that support the immigrant issue. We would also use the role of Commander-in-Chief to put armed forces by the borders to decrease immigration.
