While watching Ted Cruz doing a presser in Arizona at the border of the United States and Mexico, I just shook my head. That is my current reaction to anyone or anything mentioning the border. When two former Mexican presidents thought they would share their foul mouthed expression over Mexico paying for a wall I laughed. Dolia Estevez wrote about the most corrupt people in Mexico and you bet politicians were named, so much for being the beacon of light and truth that they believe they are when speaking of public policies.
I think I have finally come up with the best idea for the border wall. Well I don’t want to steal credit for the idea, my mother in law Lillian actually thought of this, and it’s a brilliant. What makes it even better is that Lillian herself was a legal immigrant to the United States and a naturalized citizen. She came up with the idea while talking with her son, my husband, about our local baseball team.
Years ago when our local baseball team, the Padres, were building their new stadium, they gave fans the option of sponsoring a brick that would make up the construction of the ball park. You could gift them or have a heartfelt saying put on it, whatever you wanted, within reason of course. I even bought one for my husband who has been huge fan. It is cool every opening day of the baseball season when we go look for the brick and sort of touch it, a kind of blessing for a great season.
When Donald Trump wanted Mexico to pay for the wall I thought that was an inspired idea but this one is even better because it won’t cost the America taxpayer anything. We could sell the bricks making up the wall to US citizens. And each family member who has lost a loved one to murder, rape, etc could add the name the of their dead loved one, like Kate’s folks could put her name on a brick and we could use these to build the wall. By the way, all the names would be facing the Mexican side. This will be a constant reminder of the costs of illegal immigration has on our country to those who would encourage the behavior.
And maybe seeing this giant wall with names of lost loved ones, lost hope, lives stopped, families changed forever, just maybe that would snap DC and Mexico out of their fog and give them a daily reminder of the true cost of illegal immigration to our nation.

We are in the midst of the largest invasion on our borders than we have ever seen in this country. We have masses of children, adults, and gang members arriving at our borders every day. This is seemingly a problem that the California ruling elite and Washington DC ruling elite are unprepared to solve. As far back as January of 2014 we know that the Administration (DHS) was asking people to apply for jobs as escorts for the illegal minors coming to our shores. We have all seen the protests happening across the country on the news but what they aren’t telling you is why the communities are protesting beyond the fact that the Administration and the people coming here are illegal aliens. And yes Mr. President we are a Nation of immigrants but we are LEGAL immigrants!
So take Murrieta for instance, this is a small community in the southwestern part of Riverside County in California. This is not the hot bed of activity for anything. Until 1991 it wasn’t even considered a city as the population didn’t meet the requirements for “city” status until then. They now have a municipal fire department but that didn’t occur until 1987 before this date they had a volunteer fire department. Murrieta also boasts a fairly new police department originated in 1992 with 100 officers filling its ranks. And to service the health care needs of this small community are two hospitals. Just so you understand Murrieta was considered the safest city in the country of its size.
If you lived in a little hamlet such as this and heard that your population was going to increase with a huge incursion of people here illegally what would you do? You would try to protect the small slice of freedom that you have wouldn’t you? Well Murrieta and other communities are doing just that. They can’t believe the federal government is trying to overwhelm their town resources with people who came here illegally and of whom they have no identity. As we have no demographics of who is coming over the borders we have no idea who the government is trying to release into our communities. The DHS seems unable to answer cursory questions reading the identities of these folks except to say they are children.
We are getting reports from others that the groups of “children” also include gang members and others that have or will likely commit crimes in our country. As the California legislature seem to be absent from this discussion we ask the people to contact their representatives and ask them what they are doing to solve this problem. We know there are communicable diseases within the populations of aliens coming here, that will spread like wild fire through our communities if left unchecked. We also realize that the United States taxpayer is paying the bill for all of these people and their potential stays at 3 star hotels being set up around the country. At a time when we are exposing how poorly our own Veterans are treated we see illegal aliens getting preferential treatment that is unknown by our own!
The longer this situation is allowed to fester the worse it will get and there seems to be no leadership from the Ivory Tower of the White House. Polling numbers for the President keep plummeting as he continues to ignore this debacle. In the mean time we have communities of taxpayers who are trying their best to protect the sanctity of their towns and homes. And no one is calling out the progressives for using these kids as human shields for more failed liberal policies. And Yes Mr. President you did indeed build this mess!
