Donald Trump wants “The Wall” to stop the flow of drugs across our southern border.


I want secure borders. There are many reasons to want secure borders beside stemming the flow of illegal immigrants. The following graph is food for thought. Frankly, I was shocked! The trajectory of the curve for drug-induced deaths is appalling!

    Yes. Scary, isn’t ir!

    The error in your graph is that it fails to mention that the vast majority of those drug related deaths are actually caused by prescription drugs being misused. I’m happy to see traffic deaths reduced over that 10 year period.

  4. I have seen the efficiency of the Israeli fence around Israel and believe the same effect could be had in our country if it is constructed well and reinforced with border guards.

    What Bill Grisham said. And there is no reason to think that wasting taxpayer money on a border wall would do anything to reduce drug misuse, whether of restricted substances (prescription drugs) or of banned substances.
