This political banter that not supporting this multi-billion effort means that we do not support protecting the border is a red herring false argument that must be seen as such. We need to protect our borders, but this arbitrary stance of declaring it an emergency so that funds can be misappropriated is unacceptable as a strategy. The process of funding for this approach must be done through congress, not through a technicality that is founded on a false narrative that sensationalizes the current issues that exist along the border. I oppose the approach, the narrative, and the demonizing of majority of individuals who are seeking humane consideration of an environment in which they desire to rescued from. Let’s return to the negotiation table with congressional leaders prioritizing the budget and the approach. Let’s discontinue the Executive Orders and potential declarations of emergency that sidestep reason, listening, and precedent.
