Bring wall down by being engaged
Some people might have voted for Donald Trump for safety to be protected by a wall that is supposed to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border. This wall was meant to protect us from illegal immigrants, yet it caused a government shutdown, which left a lot of employees out of work and pay for a couple of months.
Donald Trump is also insisting he should pull funds from our national emergency funding. These funds are meant to be for emergencies such as floods, droughts, or providing to victims of fires. If our president were to take these funds, it would be hurting those who need it if an emergency were to happen.
People can say that this wall is meant to protect us, but it’s caused division, and so far it’s been hurting people. A Bee article, “California AG Rebuts Trump in Spanish,” by Yesenia Amaro reports these issues and ends with saying if we all come together we could bring these walls down.
We all have the power to stop the administration from taking over if we become politically engaged and know what’s going on in our country.
