Climate change is going to force a lot more desperate migration than any walls are going to prevent. I hope Canada hasn't built a wall by the time it is too hot to grow food in Minnesota.

Is it getting hotter?
Is it caused by man?
Can we do anything about it anyway?
Can people set aside political hatred to do anything about it?
With the sharp rise in military heat injuries and deaths, is it a national security issue?

Are we getting invaded by illegals on the Southern Border?
Are they consuming resources we canít spare?
Are they taking jobs away from Americans?
Are they committing crimes at a disproportionate rate to the number of crimes citizens commit?
Is the Democratic Party looking to replace the white majority?

Hmmmmmm. Complicated topic!

If you ask the apprentice in the White House who is taking 3.6 billion away in military project spending to prove a political point, he'd say the wall. Yet - who's going to pay for the wall...MEXICO. That played out just as he promised. Our military could have no better friend than Trump.

With severe weather events happening as regularly as mass shootings, a lot of people are accepting this as " the norm". And that is troubling to me.

The military budget is enormous. Setting aside a relatively small amount to protect the southern border is a good idea.

Having Trump follow through with his repeated campaign go to line of having Mexico pay for the wall would be an even better idea. Shutting down the government over ego driven politics of funding a wall - another bad idea. Raiding the military funds when all else has failed = despearation to appeal to a base of voters for political points.

The military projects raided for funds also adversly impacts the economies locally across many states where projects are now no longer being pursued. Several deliapidated and overpopulated schools for kids on bases have lost their funding including in Mitch McConnell's state of Kentucky.
