Honor The Fallen By Demanding The Border Wall

If you want to honor our veterans lost this Memorial Day, make sure you stand up and demand the border wall be built.

For far too long, Americans have been on the fence (pun intended) about whether the border wall need be built. And much of the wavering has been at the hands of the so-called representatives from within the United States Congress. The halls of the House of Representatives and Senate are lined with the self-interested, those who would rather fight for their pocketbooks than constituents. They are Democrats and Republicans, and all are ultimately fighting for the same thing: power.

The power craving viewed most often by the general public comes from the activists and radicals who are hell bent on doing everything to make America a globalist talking point. The latest example came out of the mouth of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) when she took to her Instagram story to call Americans oppressive if they grew cauliflower in their gardens instead of growing yucca or plantains.

The United States of America is a country of many generations of immigrants, as Ocasio-Cortez discusses all the time. But her lament demonstrates her misunderstanding of what it means to be an American. The United States is a sovereign country, whose citizens have shared values in freedom and independence—life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. These are the ideals that is what the country was founded upon. And it all works because the citizenry shares such values and does not divide into warring camps between cauliflower and yucca.

This understanding is ever-so important as Memorial Day approaches. All members of the military take an oath, swearing to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Far too many have died fighting so that individuals can continue choosing which vegetables to eat, free from scorn. But government representatives are trying to divide on the vegetables and on the issues that military fights for on behalf of the people.

Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrat 2020 presidential candidates do not want the borders defended and insist that everyone can walk over the border as if it does not exist. They do not understand and/or care that America is only a country if differentiated with a culture of its own, a government of its own, and yes, set borders outlining itself to differentiate it from the other countries.

A border wall clearly sets the boundary and helps maintain order and structure to the country. But right now it is chaos. Just look at the numbers. In April, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol accumulated 109,144 apprehensions at the Southwest border. This set a new record, which had been set just the month prior at 103,719. That breaks down to more than 3,600 illegal aliens flooding into the country every single day. And that then means 3,600 mouths to feed, to clothe, to house, to health, to educate, to protect every single day. What are those mouths doing in return? What are they doing to become members of this country? Those who have come to this country legally are not fans.

Illegal aliens butt in line, or rather skip the line completely, to run amok as if they are entitled to the rights and freedoms others have worked to maintain. Yes, there are good-hearted, hard-working people who are coming in to have a better way of life, but they provide a first impression of lawlessness. And a country that allows for such lawlessness devolves into anarchy and anarchy is just another word for the jungle.

In the jungle, only the strongest survive. Everyone else is a victim, and victims are the people the left tries to claim as their own. The jungle does not care about protection of the weak, but only about getting power. This plays out in the current claims of victimhood for illegals while also arguing for the destruction of the greatest victims: the unborn. The unborn do not yield any power to the left.

The simple truth is that it should not be easier to cross the southern border into the United States than it is to be born into this country. The left thinks everyone must be allowed into this country except for those coming through the birth canal. What they do not understand is that keeping people out of a country is justified. Killing babies is not.

Nothing will be resolved during Memorial Day weekend. The border crisis will continue, and the representatives in Congress will do nothing to deal with the issue that real Americans care about: security of human life. So take it upon yourself this Memorial Day to be productive. Spend time honoring those who truly put themselves on the line for security of others, the ones who sacrificed their lives for yours. And make sure you remember the fallen, who fell so you can whine about vegetables.
