The Senate yesterday passed a bill to create a wall across part of the Mexican border. 700 miles, to be exact, out of the 1951 miles that comprises our border with Mexico.
What this bill will not do:
-Help us register the significant number of undocumented immigrants in our country
-Prevent terrorists feared to be crossing our border
-Save or create jobs for white Americans
-Address the political and economic issues driving people to immigrate from Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries.
What this bill will do:
-Earn Republicans and a handful of Democrats some “tough on immigration” points in the November elections.
-Further sour relations between the US and Latin America
Way to go, First Branch of Government.
