Democrats are for border security, just not $5.6 billion wall

January 11, 2019

I read a Letter to the Editor Jan. 10th regarding Trump’s wall and how we should now spend five point six billion dollars.

I was amazed by this letter — everyone agrees border security is needed. But who can forget what was told to us for two years! A campaign promise was “Build that wall and Mexico will pay for it.”

Democrats are for border security, which includes more border patrol agents and more technical tools to combat the influx of illegal border crossings. What Democrats are against is a five-point-six-billion-dollar wall, one that Mexico was supposed to pay for.

So if Donald Trump can’t keep his campaign promise, then don’t pass it onto the already financially strapped citizens of the USA.
