We are building an incredible new fence along the Mexican border; that means tax payer’s money down the drain.
Mexicans cross the US border illegally in search of work because they don’t earn enough money in their own country to sustain themselves. I can vouch for that. Is a fence going to stop them?
We have to address the problem not the symptoms. They need a decent minimum wage. They need schools and libraries. They don’t need a fence; they need a supportive government. If they would have that they wouldn’t even think about the United States; they have a beautiful country and a deep cultural background.
We applauded when the Berlin Wall fell. Are we building another one?
What do you think?
