Texas Border Fence

A man mows his property along the border fence in Brownsville, Texas, in September 2016. The staggered fence or “wall,” costing $6.5 million per mile, runs about 100 miles of Texas’ 1,254-mile border with Mexico.

When we give jobs to people entering our country illegally, are we not a little to blame when they come for them?

When we provide housing for people who are here illegally, are we not a little to blame when they live in them?

When we ask people here illegally to get driver's licenses, are we not a little to blame when they crash?

When we provide for medical and nutritional needs when their own country won't, are we not a little to blame?

And if we're to blame for all these things, why can't we spend $5 billion on education, housing, jobs, health care and the things these people need. They don't need a wall; they need help.

If we're going to provide these opportunities, why not also provide them on the other side of the border?
