New York Time Falls Short of Real Deal on Mexico and The Wall

As you read this article -Forget The Wall; There’s a Better Way; keep in mind they are playing politics, not telling the whole story.  President Obama has tried for years to get Mexico to agree and work with the US to establish pre-clearance at the boarder, but to no avail.  Perhaps if Mexico cooperated we wouldn’t even be talking about a wall.  But illegal immigration benefits Mexico on many levels, so President Obama, couldn’t accomplish very much.

Different cultures that have different goals require different actions.  And Action is all that counts.  Talking and identifying a problem is only the first step – what is the action?  We never hear of one, only that if we were nicer everyone would get along.  Amazing to think that ten’s of thousands of Mexican citizens are murdered along the boarder and Mexico has done almost nothing to stop the bloodshed, except ask the United States for help.  If we could stop some of the drugs form flowing into our country, that would reduce the killing because there would be less reason to “solidify” the cartel’s domains.

If building a Wall is the best action, albeit, not the perfect solution, I say Do It!   Stop talking and acting like if you describe a problem that your a great leader and we should applaud your thoughts – I WANT Solutions!

I don’t know of any country in history that had a policy of Open Boarders.  None.  So, why is America not entitled to protect it’s boarder like every other country?  The Canadian Prime Minister tweeted that “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith,” Mr. Trudeau wrote on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. “Diversity is our strength.”

Sounds great, but that still means immigrants must meet certain standards, it’s not a free for all policy.  And, I wonder what will happen after a few attacks happen in Canada?   Perhaps the old saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” should apply.

I'm all about people. Love to read and re-think about Politics and how it impacts people in their daily lives. I offer my opinion, just as anyone should, for the belief if we all talk about what matters to us, we will find a solution we can agree upon.
