Letter: Border security


I have a response to offer to Susan Anderson’s letter titled, “Emergency?” dated Jan. 26. I shake my head in disbelief that Ms. Anderson could not come to grips with figuring out an answer to her own question; with careful research and a dose of good “thinking” applied it is very possible she would.

Ms. Anderson is correct with one assertion; The Republicans did not deliver a continuing resolution that was satisfactory to securing our nation’s borders. House leadership is part of the problem, yes, and globalist money was in the mix.

An invasion occurs 365 days of the year at the U.S. southern border. Caravans are a threat multiplier.

The first four years of the Obama administration they, too, had an opportunity to secure our southern border. The Democrats enjoyed a majority in Congress, but they failed to deliver for the DACA kids. Use of technology was talked about; sadly they failed to make good on their rhetoric. The truth, I believe, lies in the fact that solving issues removes a political tool from their political war game bag.

I do believe that a nation without borders is no longer a sovereign nation.

Does the southern border present us with a national emergency? Yes, it does, and so do other entry paths particularly our ports be they sea or land.

There are avenues to legally apply to enter our country. The U.S. has embassies in Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico.
