The controversy over the border wall with Mexico will continue until it is completed. Then the left will complain because it is completed. In other words, there is no way those who support open immigration will change their minds no matter how disastrous that policy is to our nation.
While President Trump has numerous obstacles to overcome in getting his promised wall built, some of which are in his own party, his resourcefulness has already found funding for 7.5 miles of the border wall from a very unlikely place. With this sort of track record, it’s unlikely that he will be stopped in fulfilling this campaign promise.
The ironic part of all of this is that the funding for this very small, first part of the wall came from legislation signed by none other than Mr. Obama.
Where is the wall currently under construction? Press Secretary Spicer answered, “It is currently being built in Naco, Arizona; Sunland Park, New Mexico; and we are going to be starting to do this in San Diego; El Paso; and Rio Grande Valley.”
In a strange twist, “[t]he project was paid for by last year’s fiscal budget, which was given the thumbs up by Obama. It seems that the former president is fine with securing small areas of the border, but attacks anyone who wants to secure the entire country.”
Makes you wonder what is so special to Mr. Obama about those specific locations.
Border walls work. That’s why leftists who support the elimination of restrictions on immigration as well as sanctuary cities oppose them.
“Border walls have come under heavy criticism by liberals, but security experts say that they work. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly is on record as saying that a wall is ‘the most effective way to keep people out, to stop drugs, to stop cartels, to stop human trafficking, and to prevent illegal immigration,’ according to HeatStreet.”
Liberals want the dissolution of Western culture and traditional American values. Flooding the nation with immigrants, especially from lands hostile to Western culture is their preferred method. Walls get in the way. Therefore, they oppose walls as well as the enforcement of immigration laws.
Figuring out the problem is easy. Fighting it takes more work.
