The people who are rushing our border patrol agents and throwing rocks are not having the effect they intended. The editors of the Dallas Morning News are now saying there is a case for the wall.
Here’s an excerpt from their editorial:
The people who attempted to storm the border are making the case for Trump’s border wall
We are all cringing at the images of migrants, including women and children, fleeing tear gas at the southern California border.
At the same time, we have to separate the emotion of those images from the reality that a lawless surge at border checkpoints is going to draw a response from the law enforcement agents we have charged with keeping order. When dozens of migrants attempted to cross the border illegally and began hurling rocks at U.S. Border Patrol Agents, the agents had little choice but to employ tear gas to disperse the crowd.
If we take yet another step back and look at matters rationally rather than emotionally, we can see that from the Middle East to the northern triangle of Central America, we are witnessing one humanitarian crisis after another — people fleeing their native countries in search of a better life. Ebbing democracy, failing states and increasing desperation are leading people to seek better circumstances than those they face…
Whatever one thinks of what Trump says or tweets, particularly about his hope to build a massive border wall, it doesn’t excuse migrants rushing at our border patrol.
That’s a great editorial and they’re right. It’s time to make the wall happen.
