As you know if you watched his address on Tuesday night, the President made a compelling case for building a barrier on our southern border. We currently have 2000 migrants crossing that border illegally every day and, if caught, demanding asylum, often on specious grounds.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported using at least one welfare program as compared to 35 percent of native-headed households. Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives). In addition, murders, extortion, and human trafficking (i.e., slavery) committed by such gangs as MS-13 are both brutal and widespread.
Clearly, something must be done, but the new radical Democrat Party led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want no part of fixing the problem.

Why do we have walls? Obviously, either to keep something or somebody out of an area or to confine them to an area. They have been with us since recorded history.
The Walls of Jericho kept residents safe until the traitor, Rahab, let the enemy in to wreak destruction. The Great Wall of China was very effective until technology overtook it. Hadrian’s wall in what is now Great Britain was very successful in keeping out invaders from the north. Castles in Europe were, essentially, walled compounds for the elite. There is a wall down the center of Belfast, Ireland that put an end to “the troubles” in that City, and there is a very effective wall Israel has constructed along its border with the Gaza Strip. All these walls were designed to keep people out.
