Fund the government. Build a barrier and do what we can through technology to make our borders stronger. The cost is relatively little compared to total government spending. The only legitimate downside to the wall is the cost. Let’s try to find a way to accomplish more with a smaller investment. If cost is the issue, let’s use Ted Cruz’s idea of taking funds seized from narco traffickers and pass a tax on funds sent from the US to Mexico. Those ideas make sense! I live in a border state. Those of you who have not seen the many impacts of illegal immigration should visit the border facilities, view the trash left behind by the illegals and maybe even talk to the people who live near the borders. You’ll likely come away with a a different view than you had in the beginning. President Trump made a strategic error In positioning the barrier as Trump’s Wall,” versus erecting a barrier to improve security. The Democrats are against it because they are against Trump, and they have let their emotions direct their behavior.
