President Trump must make a stand on the funding of the border wall. Such a wall will work in keeping out illegal aliens (which is why the Democrats do not want it). The president must make a formal speech to the American taxpayers and remind us all of the hundreds of billions of dollars a year illegal immigration is costing us.

Mr. Trump ought to tell Americans how many illegals coming across the border, being detained and then simply released into the United States, never to show up for their court dates. He must report the costs of illegal immigration when it comes to schools, medical care, welfare benefits, jails, legal challenges, wage depression, stolen identifications and more.

We now have over 22 million illegals and more are coming each day. With $30 billion, the United States can build a wall with layered technology enhancements to stop this invasion. By dividing the construction into 50-mile increments per construction contractor, the entire border can be constructed before the 2020 election.

President Trump, fight for the money and build the wall with either civilian contractors or the military. We want national security.
