In a 5 to 4 decision, the US Supreme Court has made a decision that temporarily gives the green light to the Trump administration to reallocate $2.5 billion in Pentagon military funds for construction of a border wall, according to a piece on CNBC by Dwyer and Francescani. The US Supreme Court overturned a lower court injunction, which now allows the Southern Border Wall to proceed in what some are saying is Border Security and Rule of Law. The Trump White House has been promoting the Rule of Law narrative which suggests that the border wall will keep out the bad actors. The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union or ACLU on behalf of the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition, which challenged the White House. The funds used by President Trump are from the Pentagon and of course military funds to replace funds he was denied by Congress.
Our Views: There is no question that we all have ancestors from Asia, Europe, Latin America or Africa. Those in the US who want to stop immigration while living in an immigrant country, are out of touch. However, allowing immigrants in without any understanding of the US ability to absorb newcomers into schools, with sufficient housing and medical resources. Does the US now have enough resources to accommodate 10,000,000 new immigrants? Which states should they go to? Here is a solution. Allow 100,000 immigrants into the country, giving them the standard test, but also giving them the tools to get a job – intensive English courses, support on job search and placement near good schools to ensure their children have a chance to assimilate. Then take in 100,000 more….and repeat.
