Two weeks down, and no deal … yet
2019 is ticking. Christmas and New Year’s Day have come and gone. Hallmark Christmas movies are no longer running. Yet congress is at a standstill, and the government is shut down.
Congress says they want immigration reform first, before border security. They do know they are the ones to make those reforms happen. It’s a shell game. A, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”
Time is ticking. It’s time to move forward and to negotiate with a President who is following the directives of the people to implement a border crossing policy and to button down illegal immigration.
Securing the border sets parameters, who’s in and who’s out. We need to know where we stand. The only ones profiting from open borders are cartels, coyotes, and gangs.
Illegal immigrants could immigrate peacefully and safely under U.S. protection – and with no more expense than paying a coyote – had we parameters for them to follow at the border.
President Trump is responsible for our security, and I am thankful he is working to that end. He is working to improve our infrastructure and to infuse technology into our nation’s security.
I have a simple suggestion for consideration. Had I spent seven years debating immigration like government has, I could no doubt come up with better ideas to put on the table. However, My Beautiful Wall with Door and Doorbell would offer security and hospitality: http://www.donaldjtrump.bz/trump-build-wall-beautiful-door-doorbell/
Time to get out the slide rule or pocket calculator to find the real cost of border security. Put a plus sign before what the current, ongoing cost is to maintain border security without a border wall and subtract the amount of the President’s $request before congress for a border with technology. The net of those two numbers is the bottom-line real cost of the President’s plan for our security.
How hard can this be, folks?
