Trump’s wall And The Logic Of Border Controls

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

News across the pond is dominated by Trump’s wall at the moment, the president’s bid to male goo another of his campaign promises in the face of obstruction from The Democrats and an all out propaganda assault from mainstream media, totally blanking factual reports of progress on the wall along the border with Mexico, and focusing on the human cost to wannabe illegal immigrants of denying them access to the USA, rather than on the other role the wall will play, of stopping, or at least slowing the flow of illegal drugs, weapons, human trafficking and fugitives from justice across a border that currently is so poorly policed it might as well not exist.
This may seem to have little to do with UK news, but read the piece below and the linked item from the Daily Wire, and think not of the human cost of controlling immigration, but of the human cost to your neighbours, colleagues and community members of NOT controlling borders.

Ya know it drives me crazy when people say “The vast majority of the drugs that he (Trump) alludes to, including heroin, are increasingly caught at the legal ports of entry, which would be unaffected by the construction of additional physical barriers. Critics routinely point to drug tunnels as a sign that walls don’t work.”

Let’s put our thinking caps on for a minute. Alright we Build the Wall…and Now the Only entry is AT the Ports…Where People are Supposed to come through…It Insures we document and vet everyone…Nobody gets in without approval first… The Drugs already coming through the ports…That’s Right…Our Guys (and Gals) are Good and they get a lot of the drugs before they hit our streets…

But How many people are coming across the border with their Drugs Weapons and Children (Sex Slaves)…without being detected… Here is the Answer…We Don’t Know…Ya know why we don’t know…They didn’t come through a port of entry…They did not go through a process…We don’t know who they are…we don’t know how many there are…we don’t know where they are going…and we don’t know their intentions for being here…and we don’t know their state of health and well-being.

If we had a Wall…There would be no other choice…They MUST go through the Ports of Entry…All would be Funneled through…Everyone Vetted and Accounted For… So tell me again How Walls Don’t work… As for the Tunnels…Since our Border Patrol will be much more able to Contain and Control Illegal crossings due to being forced to come through Legally…

They will be able to take relief from fence Jumpers BECAUSE of the Wall…and They will then be able to Distribute More time and Resources to Finding these Tunnels and Closing Down their Illegal Actions… A Wall Makes Logical Sense…A Wall Will Work…Rather than futally plugging Holes in the Dam…A Wall is a Solution that Changes Everything…and that is the actual problem…When you make your money illegally…doing illegal things illegal ways…

They are the ones affected by this…They are the ones we Ought to be Targeting…and since the Dirty Deep State does everything illegally…That is Why they cannot have this wall…because it affects Them…Not Us…Them… Why wouldn’t we want to Control our Expenses…Why wouldn’t we want to Change the Illegal Immigration Laws…So they are no longer Rewarded for Breaking the Law…That makes No Sense…It only encourages More of it…How much do we spend annually on Illegals…Why…It is Criminal and we Do Not Pay Criminals for Breaking the Law…

We Jail them… We could then use all of that money that we would now be saving from supporting Illegals…To Giving it to out American Vets and Homeless Families…These are the People we should be Taking Care of First…It is Immoral Not to…That is what is Immoral… Will a Wall Catch them All…Maybe Not…But it Surely would put the Scales in our Favor instead…Build That Wall and Build it Tall…

A Few Hours From Where Acosta Said There’s No Crisis: 21 Bodies, Some Burned, Found In Mexican Border Town

On the same day that CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta posted his report from McAllen, Texas assuring Americans that there wasn’t “anything resembling a national emergency situation,” at least not there, very different reports were coming out of a Mexican border town just a few hours
