Listen up, America. In this day and age what with drones, border patrols and modern technology, extending the steel barrier that already exists isn’t practical or worth the millions Mr. Trump would have we taxpayers spend.
Besides, are’t we historically a nation of immigrants? Isn’t that what the Statue of Liberty and the poem at its base all about: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”?
Throughout our long and storied history, this Republic — generation after generation — has welcomed millions of folks regardless of race, color or creed. Of course, U.S. immigration policy is and continues to be careful and selective; no reasonable person wants to allow rapists, gang members, felons et cetera to be allowed into our country.
This November, citizens, vote for you want. It’s a free country. That’s what the Constitution is all about. But Donald Trump’s plan to close our borders entirely is not reasonable or financially wise. Besides, the folks he’s trying to keep out are already here!
