Current Major Issue

One of the biggest problems in the U.S. is terrorism. With the recent attacks on Paris and in California, citizens are most worried about protection and security. The thought behind these most recent attacks is ISIS but the problem is they are not a country they are a network and are everywhere, not in one area. (http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/data-mine/2016/01/03/what-will-be-the-biggest-issues-in-2016 ) The first thing I would do as president is make treaties with other countries such as France, England, and even Russia to come together to help one another seek out ISIS and eliminate the threat to all of our countries, but to do this I would need approval from the senate (⅔ vote). Also if we wanted to we could declare war with ISIS with approval from congress but I do not believe that is the right path to go down. Another key issue goes hand in hand with terrorism is immigration, by letting in so many people it could also allow terrorists into the country and I think we need to limit immigration somewhat.
