In light of the hundreds of thousands of social media posts and tweets over the holiday weekend amidst the partial government shutdown, which occurred because of Trump’s willfully blind demand that $5 billion be earmarked to build a border wall, which the vast majority of us know is a futile mission considering how simple and easy it is to tunnel under, or climb over the wall – after all, where there’s a will there’s a way… and our ancestors certainly proved this when they crossed the Atlantic, or trekked across the Sierra Nevadas – it’s time to quickly brainstorm solutions since our president can’t.
Trump is obstinate. He’s not a flexible thinker. Trump latches onto an idea from last century, or in this case, from over a millennium ago, and refuses to let it go and sadly appears completely unable to adapt to reality. Because Trump’s thinking is cemented, he’s not the fittest to find a workable solution.
It’s time to drowned social media with bright ideas. This proposal is a work in progress, but solutions are only found by taking the first step.
Immigration and our AMERICAN PRINCIPLES:
- Immigration is part of the American DNA, it’s what has enabled us to become a superpower of goodness that lights the world
- We must open our doors to asylum seekers
- We must have an efficient and effective path to citizenship
- Dreamers must be protected
- We must stop guns and drugs and the cartels from crossing the border, as well as other criminals
How to properly apply $5 Billion to securing our border, as well as maintain our American principles:
- SUGGESTION: $5 Billion can be used for infrastructure
- Many of the jobs created can be given to asylum seekers and migrants seeking citizenship
- Back in the 1800’s, once the trans continental railroad was built, and the railway barons (Vanderbilt, Astor, Carnegie) dreamed of towns developing across the heartland, they went in search of immigrants and made deals with them to relocate to America to farm the heartland, offering homesteads, travel expenses and opportunity; more than five million Germans flooded in to what became known as “the German triangle“
- Why not do something similar with the current immigration crisis, create small communities, provide infrastructure job opportunities similar to what we did during the great depression when damns, bridges and highways were built through the WPA and the New Deal
- If it worked then, it can certainly work now; it’s great to already have a blueprint to follow
This is a seed idea that needs to be watered, nurtured and given sunlight. Stamping it out without coming up with another idea is pointless. Five billion for the wall is also pointless.
