Quote for the day: “Build economies, not walls.”

Listening to the news coverage of the negotiations over border security, you would think that no one knows or cares why people are crossing the border. All I hear is talk about trading fewer detention beds for more wall.

Really? Is that the best they can do? Can someone talk about how to address the forces driving migration?

The need for migrant workers in the US.

Violence in Central American countries.

The demand for drugs in our country.

The effect of globalization on the Mexican economy.

Families of migrant workers that want to reunite.

Come one, people! You’re not stupid. Analyze the situation and do some long-term problem-solving. Please!
