Traffic deaths rise

According to the National Safety Council, traffic deaths for the first six months of 2015 were 19,000, up 14 percent, and serious injuries were 2.3 million, up 30 percent. This costs $152 billion, up 24 percent.

So where do politicians want to spend money? On more border security. Donald Trump’s immigration plan of deporting all 11 million illegal immigrants could cost $400-$600 billion. Where is the outrage over an estimated 44,000 Americans being killed in car accidents this year?
