The thing about the border wall that people just do not understand is that there are people out there that will try to get into the country illegally and they need to be stopped.
Look at it this way, there are locks on the doors of your house. If you don’t think the wall is a good idea, take the locks off. Hell, take the doors off too.
Take down your little security camera. Take it all down because it’s hypocritical.
Democrats scoffed when Donald Trump promised a big, beautiful wall along our border. And they’ve done everything they can to stop it.
What they refuse to tell you is what’s really happening at our border.
There’s a massive black market South of the border. Mexicans smuggle mountains of substances into our country. This has contributed to our opioid epidemic—with terrible consequences.
Democrats don’t seem to care as Trump tries every way he can to stop it.
But our Feds have seized considerable cash from Mexican cartels. We have a huge cache of resources, meant to combat drug crime.
From Fox News:
The Department of Homeland Security has requested assistance from the Pentagon to build 270 miles of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to combat drug smuggling, senior U.S. defense officials said…
Under 10 U.S Code 284, the DOD is authorized to build fencing, roads and lighting as a counter-narcotic measure and to deal with drug smuggling. That includes assisting the DHS in an area that is considered a “drug-smuggling corridor,” as the DHS has declared the entire southern border.
Homeland Security is seeking $7 billion in funds to build another 270 miles of border wall. And the money will come from the perfect resource – drug-smuggling. Why aren’t we doing this already?
Sounds like an appropriate fit to me! How about you?
The DOD is authorized to build fencing to counter-narcotics smuggling into our country. It’s no secret that our border is still pretty porous for those bringing these substances in.
The area being discussed is a high-traffic spot. Criminals love using it to get into the country. Currently, it is only being protected by the weak barriers we’ve seen before.
