good things.

Our coun­try has been built with im­mi­grants from other coun­tries. In the be­gin­ning, the only re­quire­ment was to be able to get to the coun­try. A per­son could then ap­ply for cit­i­zen­ship and it would be granted. We are now a na­tion of over 320 mil­lion ci­ti­zens and it is nec­es­sary to screen those who come into our coun­try. When the Democrats were in con­trol of the pres­i­dency and congress, they saw the ne­ces­sity of stop­ping il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion.

Pres­i­dent Trump’s wall on the Mex­i­can bor­der is un­der con­struc­tion in two lo­ca­tions and the lo­cals are very pleased with the progress that is be­ing made. The new wall is made from steel. It is 30 feet high and the top 10 feet is flat plate steel with noth­ing to hold on to if you man­age to climb the first twenty
