#2 that has absolutely nothing to do with this video. as the description says, "The flies are thought to have arrived from China on a shipment of landscaping stone." if anything it has more to do with how countries trade/the methods used.

that being said, stop going there. do not instigate discussions on immigration policy in the united states on random videos that have nothing to do with it. you can go to youtube or facebook for that.
