President Trump came to California this week to look at and approve the final design of our version of The Great Wall Of China which was built at a drain on the Emperor’s personal wealth. This time the American taxpayers will pay the tab. The wall did not work because of the invading armies just built ladders and used ramps to overcome them. The walls that will be paid for by taxpayers will not stop human ingenuity and determination for what can be achieved by overcoming them. There is now a realization that our government’s immigration branch is now actively seeking anyone of color who cannot prove citizenship or provide proof of legal residency. The illusion of America being a wide-open country to those who made it across the border by boat, foot or airplane, who built lives and families over time are home free because they have stayed under the radar of the immigration authorities has been shattered. There is a new level of fear and distrust from the undocumented who once again are retreating into the shadows of society.
America cannot save the world from its inevitable demise due to the human factor that always is cited when there is a major malfunction in how we govern those who we give power to. The world is once again looking for leadership from America as it has many times in the past. We cannot wall off the rest of the world and deport others on just the word of law without any human compassion whatsoever. Race cannot be overlooked in the surge of deportation activity from ICE. We as citizens should at least be aware what is being done on our behalf to secure our borders and country as a whole. That is the right and duty of every citizen.
