A different kind of wall

To the Editor:

Sure, let’s build a wall, but not the $20 billion barricade that Donald Trump has in mind.

According to Pentagon estimates, the U.S. troops on our border with Mexico will ultimately cost us taxpayers $210 million. We have already spent $72 million.

How about we offer a deal to Mexico? We give you $200 million per year to round up and contain potential illegal border-crashing immigrants? If accepted this deal would accomplish the same objective as Trump’s brick and mortar wall but will last for 100 years at the same cost.
