Building a wall is a waste

It is unimaginable that Mr. Trump is still pushing for a wall on our southern border. This simplistic and silly solution to illegal immigration and drug trafficking simply shows his ignorance. It is well known that drug cartels have better ways to import drugs to our nation. Someone needs to educate Mr. Trump before billions of dollars are wasted on an ugly wall that will only prevent migration of wildlife and be undermined by tunnels while sophisticated dealers go on shipping in tons of narcotics.
