Many politicians use "build the wall" as empty rhetoric. But I have a lifetime of service as a record to prove I believe deeply in protecting our nation. Unfortunately, the politicians, while I was overseas serving in combat, continued to allow our country to be invaded unimpeded. This occurred both over the border and by people overstaying visas. President Trump is the first President to seriously address the issue. Any military person will tell you that one of the first things you do when you set up a base in a hostile place is you fortify the walls to control access in and out of your camp.
Simply put we need the wall and we need a better way of tracking people who come in legally and overstay their visas.
Several of the 9/11 hijackers were here on expired Visas and currently it is estimated that over 700,000 aliens are still here on expired Visas.
If FedEx can track hundreds of millions of packages every year, surely, we can devise a system to track aliens visiting our country.
