Immigration continues to be a hot topic. At the same time, technological advancements have effectively turned the world into a village, where goods, services, and people travel seamlessly. Still the President of the United States and his Republican enablers are demanding a wall...to keep out "the others!"
Everyone knows that the president is intellectually challenged but his advisors are even worse. DHS Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen testified last week under oath before Congress, in broken English, that she wants wall! That's right she said: "From Congress, I would ask for wall....We need wall."
In a lust fest whipped up by the deranged Presidential advisor Stephen Miller, Republicans are climbing all over one another and demanding "wall." This while we already have over 600 miles of wall and fence in place. Since 2007, most of the undocumented population has grown by visa overstays and not by unauthorized border crossings.
Aside from being a ginormous waste of tax payer money with $5 Billion to start and more billions to follow later, Trump's pet project would:
1. Block access to the Rio Grande;
2. Seize lands from Americans through eminent domain;
3. Exile hundreds of thousands of acres of the United States to a no man's land between the river and the wall;
4. Seal off critical wildlife corridors.
The richest and most powerful country in the history of the world wants to wall itself off! How can a country who could soon colonize Mars be so fearful of a bunch of refugees?
We dont need a wall - we just need a functioning government!
