More Proof That We Need a Wall

The Mueller report might still be dominating headlines, but now that it came back empty, it’s actually the least important issue in the country. We learned what we all knew from the beginning. With that distraction out of the way, it’s important that we focus our efforts on the key issues.

President Trump has done a lot for this country, but one of his biggest promises is still hitting major obstacles. We desperately need a border wall, and the left is stonewalling this issue with everything they have left. It’s time to punch back. One of the key talking points they use against the wall is plain wrong, and we’re going to prove it.

The Drug Problem

There are very few times the left and right agree on anything these days. They’ll probably try to tell you that the sky isn’t blue . . . One issue that seems to get universal agreement is that the United States has a drug problem. We even all agree that a dangerous number of drugs come across the border. In fact, the drug epidemic is so serious that scholars are blaming it for the recent decline in life expectancy in this country (although some of us wonder how much responsibility lies with Obamacare).

That’s where the agreement ends. The left tells us that the majority of drugs flow into the country through ports of entry. Because of that, they argue that a wall is unnecessary to battle the drug problem. We’ll deal with the flaws in this logic in a minute. For now, let’s give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that this is logically sound. This talking point just took a beating.

New Data

Let’s be fair to the left. At one point, the DEA did say that only a small percentage of heroin that enters the country came through gaps in border defense. The majority does in fact come through ports of entry. But, if you look at total drug data, you get a very different picture.

According to Border Patrol, they seized 480,000 pounds of drugs that crossed open sections of the border. Conversely, only 370,000 pounds of drugs were seized at ports of entry. An additional 200,000 pounds came along open coastline. So, if you tally the scoreboard, it’s clear that the biggest and most urgent problem is along the open border.

Keep in mind that these are complete drug totals. Heroin might be an exception, but a plurality of heroin in the country is manufactured here anyway. When you look at the rest of the list of drugs, hard or “soft,” the majority all come through gaps in the border.

Build the Wall

Here’s the crux of the issue. It wouldn’t matter if we had this data. The wall would still be necessary. Let’s go back to assuming most drugs come through ports of entry for a minute. That’s an argument for the wall. It works in two ways.

First, if any drugs at all are coming through gaping holes in border security, we should probably plug those holes. Second, a wall funnels more traffic into the ports of entry. It reduces the resources we have to expend patrolling thousands of miles of border, and it enables us to concentrate personnel and technology at the ports. By building the wall, we free up resources that will catch more drugs passing through the ports.

There’s another elephant in the room here. Drugs aren’t the only problem crossing our southern border. Human trafficking and illegal immigration are additional issues that need resolving, and those both clearly exploit border gaps. The easiest way to smuggle human beings into this country is along the thousands of miles of unprotected border, and it happens every day. If you care at all about stopping human trafficking into the United States, you have to support the wall. In every way, it’s the best step we can take right now.

Here’s the final point in all of this. No one is stupid enough to think that we can build a wall and dust our hands of problems. Obviously people will always find a way around the wall. It will still reduce the problem. If the wall lowered illegal immigration and trafficking by only 10 percent, it would pay for itself in less than five years.

The point is that the wall creates a clear obstacle, and policing the innovations that circumvent the wall is much easier than trying to man a defense against the overwhelming gaps that we have right now.

Border Patrol has been saying this for years. Anyone who is against the wall is either stupid or in support of the crimes and acts of evil that cross our border every day.

  1. Like!! I blog quite often and I genuinely thank you for your information. The article has truly peaked my interest.

  2. I believed 100% on what I read. DEMS and RINOs should go to Israel and check the Israel wall. I was fortunate to visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The Israel wall works for whatever the purpose they built the wall.
    We need to build the Southern/Mexico border and in addition fix our broken immigration systems. We have smart lawyers who are politically evil who studied the loopholes in our immigration system and use them to get paid in the process of providing guidance how to sidestep our broken immigration systems. Congress should act in passing the immigration law where there are no loopholes. Congress should act one goal to allow only legal immigrants properly vetted and no asylum privilege.

  3. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site
    with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying
    the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

  4. Excuse me please….. but who in the hell is” Commenters Above” with dates/times March 31, 2019 and April 1, 2019???

  5. Drugs, human trafficking, and illegal immigration are issues however, Congress is the problem here. This can be fixed in two simple ways, build the wall and vote sensibly. Remove the resistors from congress and help keep America strong and prosperous. WWG1WGA

  6. I lost my son to heroin overdose .he left his son & wife this is out of control we need to put a stop to this now .my son became a another number of our youth B in taken away from us

  7. Yes the problem starts and ends with the Congress, and that includes both houses. Anybody who opposes building the wall is on the dole. The are getting rich off of the war on drugs. WETHER they own stakes in rehab centers, or privately owned for profit prisons, or they own, and get huge campaign contributions from companies that are laundering money for the cartels, these people must be voted out of office. How do we get absolute morons like Nancy Pelosi, and Adam Schiff, among the dozens of others of that ilk, into these positions where they think they can run amok with abuses of power, with a total disregard for the rule of law? Well, it’s because we have even bigger morons voting. The brainwashed welfare apartment dwellers who believe that they are entitled to what the left is offering. Then you got multimillionaire ex-football stars on the tv every five minutes telling them that they aren’t getting what they deserve from their free state run healthcare. WTF is a multimillionaire of this sort doing even getting state run healthcare? Oh yeah that’s right he was one of those that Obama care was designed to help out. But your gramma can wait in line because she can’t afford the deductible from her private insurance that she pays way too much for out of grandpa’s pension check because she believes it’s the right thing to do. Socialism will be our ruin because it is always run by thieves like those we see in government here today. They have been building up the ranks for the past 60 years and have taken over the schools, the churches, the bureaucracies, and the state governments are even worse than the federal government. Their single objective is to spend their entire budget, needed or not, to insure that they receive next year’s increased amount. It time to end this kind of insanity! And we all know my little rant here doesn’t even take a chip off the iceberg of the problem as a whole.

  8. what would anyone say if I said I had a video of Obama few days after his election that he was born in Kenya??????

  9. But… but, my (d) Representative (Sarbanes) recently schooled us that a wall is not needed. He also once said that the violent demonstrators opposing Trump’s becoming President were actually Trump’s fault. Finally, the voting act he recently introduced is going to stop certain districts’ voting rolls (with over 100% of people voting) from being cleaned by Judicial Watch. Hmmm… a large part of his voters are in an area which has some120% voting, but I’m sure he’ll say that this is merely coincidental!
