Lawmakers didn’t do their homework

Here I was putting all the blame for all our problems that are created by illegal immigration at the Mexican border on the U.S. government. I was wrong, according to a news documentary this week. I kept saying, when are they going to finish the mega-billion-dollar wall at the border? Well, according to the report, yes you guessed it, never. The big hole where 90 percent of incidents occur is on American Indian land. The report told how the Indians have 100 percent flatly refused to have the wall finished and there is nothing the government can do. Billions of dollars wasted.

Thank you, legislators, for not doing your job in finding this out first. It’s time you all paid the cost back out of your paychecks.
