Letter to the editor: Finish the wall
Now that the new Democrat-controlled Congress has been seated, it is obvious that the circus has moved into the swamp. Led for the time being by ringmaster Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who on the heels of her recent declaration that the world would end in 12 years due to global warming has put forth a “Green New Deal.” This collection of nutjob ideas, if they were implemented, would truly be the end of the world as we know it.
During the most recent government shutdown, the Democrats feigned sympathy for the employees who were not being paid, but they were responsible for the shutdown. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have both voted on prior occasions for more than the $5 billion the president requested. I believe they don’t care about border security, only how many votes they might get from illegal immigrants.
Pelosi called the wall “immoral,” and some members of Congress and the media agree. My bet is that those making such statements live in places surrounded by walls and fences, and maybe have armed guards, so they are not concerned with dangerous illegals encroaching on their space. The rest of us must fend for ourselves. Finish the wall!
