We Need To Build Trump’s Wall, And We Need To Build It Tall And Strong

Did you know that Mexico is the second deadliest nation on the entire planet? The drug war down there continues to spiral completely out of control, and often the violence spills over to our own side of the border. Thanks to President Trump, security along the border is improving, but we still have a long, long way to go. Ultimately what we need is a physical barrier, because large numbers of illegal immigrants continue to pour through the soft spots in our border security. I know that a lot of liberals don’t like the idea of a wall, but that is the only way that we are going to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door.

 

The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we will always need a certain level of immigration from other nations. But prior to the Trump administration, our approach to immigration policy was absolutely insane. We had made the legal immigration process an extremely costly and complicated nightmare that hardly anyone could understand or navigate, and yet we had kept the back door completely wide open for drug dealers, gang members, terrorists, sexual predators and anyone that just wanted to take advantage of the system.

We have got to make our legal system of immigration less costly and less complicated, and at the same time we need to slam the back door completely shut so that everyone is forced to come in to the U.S. through the front door.

To illustrate why this is such an incredibly important issue, I would like to share the story of Estefania Soto with you. Thanks to a drunk illegal immigrant, Soto lost her boyfriend and her baby recently in a horrific traffic accident…

Estefania Soto has spent her days in various hospital rooms since the crash on June 10. She and her boyfriend, 28-year-old Raul Diaz, Jr., were on a motorcycle on Farm to Market 973 near FM 969 in east Travis County when they were hit head-on by a truck.

The crash killed Diaz and resulted in the premature birth of their child. Soto, 26, was only six months pregnant. Their baby was delivered through a C-section after the crash and passed away shortly after.

Soto has had 15 surgeries over the past month including a leg amputation.

If Trump’s wall had already been in place, 38-year-old Cesar Corona-Quiterio may have never had the chance to enter this country illegally and Estefania Soto may still be looking forward to a new life with her husband and her baby.

Another tragedy that could have potentially been averted by a wall on the southern border was the brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl at a high school in Rockville, Maryland. The following comes from Fox News

Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, were charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense after they allegedly attacked the girl at 9 a.m. last Thursday.

“The victim was walking in a school hallway when she met two male students, identified as Montano and Sanchez. Montano asked the victim to walk with him and Sanchez. Montano asked the victim to engage in sexual intercourse. She refused,” Montgomery County Police said in a statement.

“Montano asked the victim again and then forced her into a boy’s bathroom and then into a stall. Montano and Sanchez both raped the victim inside the bathroom stall.”

How would you feel if that was your own daughter?

I don’t understand how people can be against the wall. We literally have a war zone on the other side of the border, and CNN has reported that the drug war down in Mexico claimed an astounding 23,000 lives last year…

It was the second deadliest conflict in the world last year, but it hardly registered in the international headlines.

As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico’s drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 — second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war.

And the rising violence in Mexico and much of the rest of central America has been slowly spreading to communities all across the United States. For example, just check out what has been happening on Long Island

With MS-13 blamed for a trail of 11 corpses of mostly young people found since the start of the school year in Brentwood and Central Islip, the nation’s focus has turned on how the Central American street gang built such a presence here.

The bloodshed in the two blue-collar towns has gotten the attention of President Donald Trump, who says the killings are the result of lax immigration policies that let too many criminal ‘scum’ slip through.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech Friday not far from a park where the bodies of four young men were found this month bearing MS-13’s hallmarks: repeated slashes from a blade that left the victims nearly unrecognizable.

Are you starting to understand why I am so adamant about building Trump’s wall?

We need to build it high, we need to build it strong, and we need armed guards patrolling every inch of it.

One of the fundamental duties of the federal government is national security, and for decades prior to the Trump administration we had leaders that absolutely refused to secure our borders.

Thankfully, now we have a president that is determined to do something about this national crisis, but we still have a Congress that is intent on blocking him every step of the way.

Every member of Congress that doesn’t want Trump’s wall needs to go, and they need to be replaced by new blood that is ready to do whatever is necessary in order to protect the American people.

Michael Snyder is a Republican candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.

   
  • The drug war exists because of the war on drugs.

    • iris

      i agree with the second paragraph, 100%, but as for the first, take heroin addiction for just one example. Legal or no, it has reached epidemic proportions here, and it kills. Meth kills, LSD alters DNA and causes organic brain damage, etc. Legalizing most of this stuff, will only result in further destruction of our society. Look at what the attitude towards substance abuse has done to Western Europe already.

      • Have you ever seen pharmadeathclock?
        Legal drugs are far worse but the news and schools aren’t talking about it because they’ll lose money.

        Please see that website.

      If peoples hearts where changed, where they didn’t feel the desire to be high all the time, the drug problem would be solved…….no customers, no business.

      Only a change of heart to a society and culture that sees the benefits of being “sober minded” will change anything.

      Otherwise, the “war on drugs” is nonsense, kind of like gun control…..going after the inanimate objects, thinking it will stop bad people from doing bad things, a change of heart would be most effective.

      • To be fair there’s also a lot of Christians on drugs. For example a daily aspirin kills 3000 people a year and a lot of other over-the-counter drugs kill plenty of people as well.

    The problem with any wall is that they will simply go around it, dig under it, or fly over it. What is really needed is a 4 lane highway with a wall on each side of it. Even this is no guarantee of success. You are simply keeping the poorest of the poor out.
    Going around the wall is simple if you own a boat. Just do not land close to Mexico. And said boat can be used numerous times. As long as you don’t land in the same place twice.
    People pay big money to enter this country.
    Some of the best tunnel builders in the world belong to Mexico. So digging a tunnel under the wall is a distinct possibility. Probably several miles long. And used by numerous people willing to pay the price. Most would be blindfolded before being smuggled into the country this way to keep the location secret.
    Of course the easy way would be to counterfeit the documents necessary and pass through immigration into the country.
    That would require some skill level in printing as well as a source of legitimate IDs.
    The obit column on your local newspaper is where they are likely to get the ID. If you find a dead person with the same race, national identity of the illegal immigrant, it is virtually impossible logistically to keep them out. Especially if you falsify a birth certificate.
    We have a vast and beautiful land full of national parks. Those parks are a nightmare for any security force. Northern California comes to mind and people are lost there frequently as any ranger will tell you.
    There is a legitimate employment need being met by ranchers and farmers all along the border states for cheap labor from Mexico. Been done for years and the fines are a slap on the wrist for many of these folks.
    Those people committing horrible crimes are a minority.
    I suggest we do not dump them back to Mexico or anywhere else.
    Instead bring back the chain gangs and put them to work at hard labor for at least 5 years and then deport them. In the case of rape proven beyond any doubt execute them. I refer to DNA testing because our court system has put way too many innocent people in jail with our method of justice or lack thereof.
    We need a better system of checks and balances in our court system.
    The constitution was written by people wrongfully convicted and dumped here.
    Our country was built on the money made from illegally smuggling goods by the Adams family. They had 31 ships importing goods here around the British blockades.
    The only way to make the drug wars go away is to make it economically unfeasible to smuggle drugs into the country. Lots of luck with that.
    I suggest instead of a legal problem we make it a medical problem.
    Literally hundreds of thousands of people world wide are on drugs. Some of which are due to illnesses with a lot of pain involved.
    Enslavement by drugs is a well known problem. People on drugs will do anything for that next fix and there currently is little that can be done to bring about a cure to that strong addiction.
    Medical and drug companies are trying very hard to change that. Several new drugs on the market show promise.
    What we are up against is huge amounts of money to feed those addictions.
    A wall might be a start, but against the forces of drugs? Will not work.
    Until we bust up the drug addiction industry, nothing will work.
    We have to put them out of business and I have no idea how that can be done.

    The wall must be built. However, why is Trump not talking more about building the wall? He said Mexico will pay for it. Trump needs to saddle up and get the wall built.

    • Ken

      Looks like more H2B visas instead.
      All those illegals need a job too!

      • Isaac

        HB1 (or whatever the hell it is called) visas need to be LIMITED or STOPPED!!!
        EXTREMELY disappointed in Trump that he backed down from limiting HB1 visas!!!
        Many foreigners come with HB1 visas and take jobs from Americans. America first? Looks like Trump has said okay to India and other countries to keep the outsourcing going.
        In 1970s immigration was tight and more Americans had jobs. Now years later, too much immigration and lack of jobs.

      • lolsob.

    • Pepe Trump

      true he said mexico will build it. but when he said that, he was lying. mexico has never once agreed to pay for the wall or participate in any way to get the wall up.
      I think Mexicans will knock down any portions of the wall that ever get built. on top of that, whoever we elect next is just going to have the wall removed anyway. we’re not communist china with the walls.

  • joanofark06

    You say, “The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we will always need a certain level of immigration from other nations.” WHY?? I don’t agree with that statement AT ALL!

    I supported Trump, when he was elected, until about a month after. When I saw that he was not going to do ANYTHING about the 50 something muslim training camps in this country, I knew he was not going to change this country around. I have about 6 website links (will show on request), showing that Trump is letting in MANY muslim, so called, “refugees” into this country. (One is from the mainstream news, the Washington Post). Nothing to do with congress, or the ban….HE, himself…is letting them in.
    This country is doomed, just like Germany, Sweden, and Canada. Wait a year or two, and watch this country die a slow death, because of it! We have every school teaching young children about Islam, these days, and parents are furious about it. We have many churches being turned into mosques, all around this country.
    There will be NO wall built, so it’s a waste of time, even bringing it up. I gave up on Trump and his BS line of “Let’s make America great again”…..because he’s not doing anything for this country to get there. Absolutely NOTHING!

    • He has personally sold weapons to Saudi Arabia… you know… one of the ACTUAL Muslim countries which has sent us many, MANY terrorists. Not the stupid, piddly little countries caught up in the Muslim Ban boondoggle (which he did JUST for show).

      He makes more money from Saudi Arabia and Muslim countries than he makes from Russia. He has businesses in each of the above countries, and he has NO reason to hurt the hand that shoves money into his pockets.

    • tax slave

      Trump and the Clintons are long time friends. I just waited until after the election to say it because I thought Hillary would be worse (especially anti-gun).

      The elite duped conservatives good that time. I read Trump even pays for favorable news on Breitbart and (according to elitedaily) has given $ to the Clinton Foundation.

      • LOL, you act as though their friendship isn’t known by literally everyone??? What an insult to his voters’ “intelligene”.

        And you think that his “open secret” of paying Breitbart (and others through the years) for good press is ALSO a secret???

        “Oh, hey guys, I totes waited until after the election to say this, but water’s wet.”

        • Pepe Trump

          that dude’s name is ‘abcd’. do you think he’s smart enough to have known it was an open secret, or even what an open secret is?

    • Luis E

      Show me the links. I believe what you are saying. I just want to see for myself.

  • “Trump may not be perfect by any means, but he’s doing some things right, and this is one of them”

    Keeping his mouth shut about building the impossible wall anymore?
    Completely avoiding any talk of building the impossible wall?
    Not reminding us how many BILLIONS of tax dollars the wall will cost Americans?

    Hmm, I wouldn’t have expected anyone on this site to understand that given up those pipe dreams was “the right thing”.

  • joanofark06

    He’s doing some things right?? I missed what you say he did “right”.

  • Dithering Donald goes wherever the voices tell him to go. Lately, the majority of voices have told him to stop promising the wall.

    Deceitful Donald LIED OUTRIGHT on the campaign trail about making Mexico pay for it, and although I certainly know every country has SOME raging idiots, I still find it hard to believe enough of the existed to actually believe that campaign trail promise. No way, no how would Mexico ever be willing to pay for something that a bloated egomaniac prrvert *said* they would pay for. It doesn’t benefit them. (And it’d only stop the laziest of the laziest from getting here.)

    Dishonest Donald is the fat kid in 4th grade whom no one likes, but his parents have lots of cash so other kids did tolerate him when it meant they got free stuff. This fat 4th grader has made absurd promises that cannot be kept.
    “No more homework, I say!”
    “No more vegetables in the cafeteria, just cake and french fries, I say!”
    “All the boys get to have a go at our hottest teacher, I say!”

    These are the level of promises he made. Now that the gullibles have made everyone’s bed, it’s really, really hard to lay in it.

  • John Roberts

    We are NOT a nation of immigrants and we do not need a certain level of immigration as the author is this article so absurdly states.

    And………the wall will never be built. Democrats want illegals for votes and Republicans want illegals for cheap labor.

    If America was serious about stopping the invasion of illegals, all that needs to be done is cut off ALL government assistance.

  • The wall ain’t happenin’. You believed him.

    1. He told you he’d repeal Obamacare and replace it with something “beautiful.” You bought it. But he didn’t repeal and he didn’t replace. (Just as well: His plan would have knocked at least 22 million off health insurance, including many of you,*his* voters.) And don’t blame others; NOBODY with a conscience would have let Trump(don’t)care pass.

    2. He told you he’d cut your taxes. You bought it. But tax “reform” is stalled. And if it ever moves, the only ones whose taxes will be cut are the wealthy.

    3. He told you he’d invest $1 billion in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. You bought it. But his infrastructure plan, which was really a giveaway to rich investors, is also stalled.

    4. He said he’d clean the Washington swamp. You bought it. But he’s brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, to make laws that will enrich their businesses, along with former lobbyists, lawyers and consultants who are crafting new policies for the same industries they recently worked for.

    5. He said he’d use his business experience to whip the White House into shape. You bought it. But he created the most chaotic, dysfunctional, back-stabbing White House in modern history, in which no one is in charge. Let’s just hope he doesn’t force the US to file bankruptcy (like his other “successes”).

    6. He said he’d close “special interest loopholes that have been so good for Wall Street investors but unfair to American workers.“ You bought it. But he picked a Wall Street financier Stephen Schwarzman to run his strategic and policy forum, who compares closing those loopholes to Hitler’s invasion of Poland.

    7. He told you he’d “bring down drug prices” by making deals with drug companies. You bought it. But now the White House says that promise is “inoperative.”

    8. He said that on Day One he’d label China a “currency manipulator.” You bought it. But then he met with China’s president and declared “China is not a currency manipulator.”

    9. He said he wouldn’t bomb Syria. You bought it. But then he bombed Syria.

    10. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done. You bought it. But in his first 6 months he has spent more taxpayer money on vacations than Obama did in the first 3 years of his presidency. Not to mention all the money taxpayers are spending protecting his family, including his two sons who travel all over the world on Trump business.

    11. He said he’d force companies to keep jobs in America. You believed him. But despite their promises, Carrier, Ford, GM, and the rest are shipping jobs to Mexico and China.

    12. He said he’d create coal jobs. You believe him. He hasn’t. But here’s what he has done: Since 1965 a federal program called the Appalachian Regional Commission has spent $23 billion helping communities in coal states fund job retraining, reclaim land, and provide desperately needed social services. A.R.C. helped cut poverty rates almost in half, double the percentage of high-school graduates, and reduce infant mortality by two-thirds. Trump’s first proposed budget eliminates A.R.C.

    13. Oh, yeah, he also said he’s a Christian and a Republican.
    You somehow believed him.
