Re the June 29 article Official says Obama to seek $2B for border control: Hopefully Obama seeks $2 billion to construct housing and schools, hire care personnel and teachers, provide food and other necessities for these poor children fleeing their homelands in search of a better life or even survival itself. Papers, education and job training will make good citizens out of most of the children and $2 billion goes a long way.
Unfortunately, it sounds like he is listening more to the paranoid and ugly voices of the border patrol agents and “wall builders” requesting an immediate stop of the influx and massive deportation measures. This is not quite the man I voted for.
