From the Files of Not Normal: The wall edition

by Patty Templeton

News you need to knowPresident Trump signed an executive order for the “immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border” between the United States and Mexico. He believes that this $21.6-plus billion wall will deter illegal immigration.

Why this is not normalMost illegal immigrants do not walk across the border. They fly and overstay their visas. A wall with 5,000 border patrol agents (that cost an additional $13 billion a year) will not stop this.

What could America do with that $34.6 billion instead?

End world hunger for one year.

Fund NASA for almost two years.

Fund more than 550 start-ups focused on artificial intelligence technology for six years.

End homelessness in America.

Buy all 7 billion people on Earth a Dunkin’ Donuts 2-doughnut and medium coffee combo and still have change. Yuge amounts of change.
