Northern border wall

During the first six months of 2018, Homeland Security stopped only six people on the terrorist list from entering the US from Mexico, but they stopped 41 from entering from Canada.

Today, lunch with Mike Pence is taking precedence and the intelligence briefing has been pushed back to 2:00 pm. Just goes to show what is important in Trump’s world.

It will slow the flow of poor Mexican immigrants seeking work and do nothing to stop the drug cartels that import drugs and violence into the US. There is too much corruption along the border to be stopped by a wall.
