Letter to the editor: Border would benefit from wall

Border would benefit from wall

For some time now I have been trying to light a fire under the national media and one senator by writing them letters pertaining to our immigration problem … and it is a big problem.

My plan to correct the situation is not my own, but has been proven to work. Yet all I get from these stuffed shirts is silent apathy.

First, let’s think about the problem. There are an estimated 1,000 illegals crossing our southern border every day, putting a never-ending drain on our resources until eventually we become a country as poor as the one these illegals left. Now, what can be done to stop this unwanted flow of humanity?

Has anyone in Washington ever even thought of erecting a carbon copy of the Berlin Wall? I mean with armed guards and anything else it might require to be as successful? Probably not, mostly because they think it will cost too much.

Cost never entered the picture when a medical reform bill that most citizens objected to was passed by “highly educated” and “competent leaders.”


Using our military reserves will keep the cost of this wall down without the use of highly paid civilian contractors, not only to build it, but to operate it once it’s done.

For what it will cost to enforce this health bill, enough cement could have been bought and poured using our military resources to get the job done.

Ever heard about putting the cart before the horse? It appears to me that has happened it this case because the Big O wanted it that way. If his medical reform bill goes into full effect, it will be interesting to see what impact these illegals will have on it, because you can bet they’ll be drawing on it.
