Not only is the construction of a border wall a collosal waste of money, the cost of maintenance through the years will only get more expensive and only grow more costly to taxpayers -- for something that will do little to nothing to stop illegal immigration, especially considering that most illegal immigrants originally came here legally, with visas. I will never support taking tax payer money for something so costly, so ineffective, so overwhelmingly idiotic. Not to mention that as it stands many smaller programs such as AmeriCorps would be terribly hit by this budget, to the point that such programs may no longer be able to continue. I work with AmeriCorps in Southwest Washington, where the poverty is rampant and many, many children are coming from situations of homelessness, poverty, substance abuse, abuse and neglect. I work with these kids to help them find academic and social success, thereby increasing their chances of succeeding beyond school and becoming healthy, functioning adults. AmeriCorps and other programs like it do far more to serve and improve American communities than a ridiculous border wall ever could. If you care for the wellbeing of your constituents, you will reject this budget.
