Building a wall at our southern border is not a solution. It is a problem. We are focusing all our attention on that part of the country and missing the other points of entry that potential criminals can use. The president was willing to sign a bill without the wall until his "advisors" from Fox and Friends told him he was caving into the opposition. I think it would be in the best interests of our country to create more jobs at the border for border control agents and create more areas where people who want to claim asylum can do so. Most of the people coming through Mexico have not had an opportunity to plead their cases. To maximize our border safety, we need to meet the need responsibly, not with knee jerk fear.
