Defense spending needs to be cut, but not by taking appropriated funds to spend on a border wall that will take years to build as well as continued maintenance cost. This will not solve immigration problems. We need funds for infrastructure, education, healthcare, homelessness, & hunger before we spend funds for this. Hire more border patrol. Hire more people to expedite asylum applications in a timely manner. Return children to families. Cut wasteful spending. Repeal the 2017 tax cut to pay for needed improvements. Our general budget shortage must be addressed without cutting essential programs.
