WEB Notes: More Executive Orders by trump, this time to build a wall along the Southern Border that Border Officers have concerns over and where is the discussion about the cost of such a structure? Of course, the Executive Order does not cover the cost of the wall itself. Hey, don’t worry about the money trump says, Mexico will pay for it. Mexico will pay for it? Let us talk about the cost first. Analysts have calculated the cost to build the wall at $15-$25 Billion dollars! Mexico, a failed state is going to pay for it? Sure they will and signing yet another illegal Executive Order is not the answer to this problem.
Why do illegal immigrants come to this nation to begin with? Many reasons we can all argue. One, there is no doubt about it is for our free healthcare and welfare system. An illegal can pop right over the border and have a baby in one of our hospitals for free. Well not entirely free, you will foot the bill just like you will foot the bill for this wall. To add insult to injury, that child is now an American citizen.
The answer here is not to add more debt to the nation and sign illegal Executive Orders. The answer is to enforce the laws that already exist! We have posted numerous articles over the years of border patrol agents releasing illegals into the US. Has that now stopped? I have not heard different. Second, welfare and free healthcare for illegals should be stopped. If you cut off the funding they will deport themselves.
No negotiations with Mexico have been established and Mexico has already said they will not pay for a wall. On every level, this “solution” makes zero sense. Would you go into debt to build a wall around your property with the assumption that your neighbors would pay for it? Of course not. When you build you come up with a plan and then you fund that plan and then you build.
We need to apply common sense here. Let us listen to the Word’s of Christ.
28 “For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?”
29 “Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,”
30 “Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.”
In his first one-on-one television interview since being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump told ABC News anchor David Muir that Mexico would be paying for the proposed border wall and that negotiations between the two nations would begin “relatively soon.”
“Ultimately, it will come out of what’s happening with Mexico … and we will be in a form reimbursed by Mexico, which I’ve always said,” Trump said.
During the interview, which took place at the White House this morning, Trump said that Mexico would pay the U.S. back “100 percent.”
