    In case you have not seen this viral post yet, I am going to directly give you 6 options of what else we could provide for $14 billion besides a wall that many experts say is the most ineffective and expensive ways to secure our borders: 1) A year of education for 1.3 million school children; 2) 70,000 $200K grants for research on cancer, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, and diabetes; 3) Eliminate HALF of the hunger for the ENTIRE world (estimated at $30 billion/year); 4) 700,000 $20K grants to small business owners and entrepreneurs to expand their organizations and create jobs; 5) Cover the cost of housing for ALL 49,993 homeless veterans in the U.S. for 18 years; or 6) Pay the adoption fees for ALL 415,000 kids in U.S. foster care, AND provide a $30K college scholarship for EACH ONE. Now, I don't know about you, but as a citizen that is going to have to contribute my tax dollars to this $14 billion (when actual estimates are much closer to $25 billion), any of these is a better option. The wall is a waste.
