Workers paying the price
My oldest son and his wife are considered essential government workers. They have two daughters in college and still pay a mortgage.
They have gone for three weeks without pay even though they go to work every day.
This is all because of a wall that will be a monument to a president who has lied constantly about just about everything, including that terrorists and criminals are coming in the United States to harm us. The truth is that few terrorists and criminals are coming here. Those who want to come here are those seeking asylum from dangerous conditions in their own countries.
In addition, our president has undocumented immigrants working at his golf club and other establishments. This president says he wasn’t aware of that. How could he miss knowing that? I guess he’s paying more attention to getting a wall than he is the hiring practices at his establishments.
This wall is an expensive bauble. There are cheaper and better ways to deal with immigrants. Democrats have put forward ideas for those methods to control immigration. However, the president will not comprise. In the meantime, government workers are paying the price for our president’s intransigence.
