WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — February 7, 2019 — Citizens of the United States, YOU, are the superglue that binds the most powerful, influential nation YOU have achieved this lofty status by always, somehow, finding the COMMON GROUND among legions of cultural, linguistic. religious, and racial differences. Ending today’s bitter Border Wall War, requires YOU, once again to unmask this Common Ground.
Most Americans are in agreement that we have to:
1. Defend and protect our borders
2. Demonstrate compassion for immigrants in need
3. Prevent border crossings for those with criminal records
The great majority of Americans support these immigration values and will agree to Common Ground solutions. But, ending the Border Wall War requires a unique structure to acknowledge the will of the American people.
A Cadre: The President and Congress Must anoint a Citizen’s Cadre to identify Common Ground illegal immigration solutions to include:
· The Vice President
· Two peer selected representatives each from the Senate and House of Representatives
· A Military Leader
· A Supreme Court member selected by their peers
The Cadre would evaluate:
Technology: Evaluating innovative technologies, humanoids, unmanned air and land vehicles, vision systems, body recognition, human obstruction techniques, etc.
Natural Barriers: Utilizing mountains, terrain, vegetation, water and other barriers
Physical Barriers: Prioritizing existing barrier enhancement and the construction of new ones.
Private support: Authorize tax incentives encouraging one hundred firms each to donate $10 million instantaneously generating $1 billion.
No Quarter for Traffickers and Terrorists: Implement aggressive incarceration procedures to obstruct criminal activity while simultaneously encouraging immigration, the cornerstone of our Democracies success.
Fellow American’s we must find our Common Ground and end the Border Wall War!
