Wall is fea­si­ble, money-sav­ing

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - CHUCK FLOYD Po­tomac, Mary­land

Pres­i­dent Trump must make a stand on the fund­ing of the bor­der wall. Such a wall will work in keep­ing out il­le­gal aliens (which is why the Democrats do not want it). The pres­i­dent must make a for­mal speech to the Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers and re­mind us all of the hun­dreds of bil­lions of dol­lars a year il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion is cost­ing us.

Mr. Trump ought to tell Amer­i­cans how many il­le­gals com­ing across the bor­der, be­ing de­tained and then sim­ply re­leased into the United States, never to show up for their court dates. He must re­port the costs of il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion when it comes to schools, med­i­cal care, wel­fare ben­e­fits, jails, le­gal chal­lenges, wage de­pres­sion, stolen iden­ti­fi­ca­tions and more.

We now have over 22 mil­lion il­le­gals and more are com­ing each day. With $30 bil­lion, the United States can build a wall with lay­ered tech­nol­ogy en­hance­ments to stop this in­va­sion.

By di­vid­ing the con­struc­tion into 50-mile in­cre­ments per con­struc­tion con­trac­tor, the en­tire bor­der can be con­structed be­fore the 2020 elec­tion.

Pres­i­dent Trump, fight for the money and build the wall with ei­ther civil­ian con­trac­tors or the mil­i­tary. We want na­tional se­cu­rity.
