In his live speech last night, President Donald Trump spoke about the “growing and humanitarian crisis and security crisis at our southern border.” He more than makes the case for people who want a stronger fortification to stop illegal border crossings.
As he said, this country welcomes millions of lawful immigrants, but we can’t afford the costs of illegal aliens. They drive down wages, and hardest hit are blacks and Hispanics. President Trump spoke of drugs smuggled across the border and crime rates. He spoke of the children — used as human pawns by gangs — brought across the border and the sexual assaults against women.
(There’s plenty of money for foreign aid but no money to protect our own border?)
The president said the government shutdown situation could be resolved in a 45-minute meeting.
Will Democrats rise above partisan politics for national security?
