Phys­i­cal bar­rier log­i­cal strat­egy

The Beaufort Gazette (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Back just a few years ago when Democrats voted for and funded build­ing a bar­rier/wall along parts of our south­ern bor­der, there was talk about it be­ing needed, not about it be­ing im­moral.

But now, ap­par­ently, build­ing a wall has be­come im­moral and not ef­fec­tive and not what we as a coun­try stand for, so why doesn’t the House push for­ward a bill to fund tear­ing down the ex­ist­ing wall/bar­rier? Af­ter all, any ex­ist­ing wall must also be im­moral.

Also, the ar­gu­ment over who pays for build­ing a wall is ir­rel­e­vant since the wall it­self is now deemed to be im­moral.

When politi­cians be­have like this, it is no won­der that their ap­proval rat­ing is below 20 per­cent.

If a phys­i­cal bar­rier is not a log­i­cal part of a multi-func­tional bor­der se­cu­rity strat­egy, let’s ask peo­ple in San Diego if they agree with its re­moval at Ti­juana. If they agree, then let’s start tear­ing down that sec­tion and see the out­comes.
