Is a Border Wall Worth the USMCA Passage?

Senate Democrats are at their wits' ends: they so desperately desire the government to reopen but they won’t back down and approve the building of a wall along the southern border. President Trump is utilizing the leverage he has in regards to the partial government shutdown, leaving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fuming. But is a border wall worth it if our sovereignty is given up through the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)?

President Trump has stated: “When I say Mexico’s going to pay for the wall … I didn’t say they’re going to write me a check for $10 billion. If Congress approves this trade bill (USMCA), they’ll pay for the wall many times over. When I say Mexico’s going to pay for the wall, that’s what I mean.”
 
Passing USMCA will further integrate Mexico, America and Canada’s economies and will establish a new governing international bureaucracy, the North American Union. The USMCA places even more regulations on American workers and businesses and demolishes sovereignty! 
 
Instead of fixating on a physical barrier, Congress needs to start undoing the incentives that bring illegal aliens here in the first place. Promising government aid and welfare to those who can make it through our border security is not a deterrent! A border wall may only be a temporary fix for some.

However, Senate Republicans are fixating on the $5.7 billion President Trump is requesting for the wall instead of on the incentives. Both they and the Democrats need to be persuaded to stand up for American sovereignty and stop the USMCA.

Countries must have secure borders to protect their sovereignty. Without them, countries become regional unions, abrogating their sovereignty while delegating it to an unaccountable government. Phone your representative (202-225-3121) and senators (202-224-3121) and urge them to preserve our national sovereignty by voting to stop the USMCA. Follow up by emailing them and President Trump.
