Our democracy was founded by immigrants. Our greatest inventions were created here by immigrants. Diversity of cultures and ideas keep America strong. A border wall between the US and Mexico is an absolute waste of money. In addition, It is an obvious way for Republicans who support it to get rich through its construction. If the US wants to stop drugs and drug related criminals from crossing our borders, then we need to aggressively reduce the demand for drugs in our own population. It is a basic- supply & demand. Remove demand and supply (drugs) go away. It is our drug addicted US population that is the root cause of this problem. Building a wall does nothing to address this. In addition, the rise in use of drones has become a risk-free way for drugs to be delivered to US drug dealers. There is no wall high enough to stop drones. We have to change our focus from attacking the drug trade to helping the drug addicted, as well as the at-risk, so that they don’t start using. Eliminate demand and you eliminate crime.
