4/2: Federal Budget Funding for a Border Wall
The wall between the U.S & Mexico is an economic and environmental disaster harming our relationship with our southern neighbor. The Mexican birth rate is down and the Mexican economy is improving. This leads to the demographers’ conclusion that Mexico will not have surplus workers by the year 2030. The Republican offer of a dollar of Obamacare subsidy for a dollar of wall funding is unacceptable.
HOUSE AND SENATE:
The Federal Budget
SUGGESTED MEMBER SCRIPT:
“Hi, my name is …, I’m a constituent from “i.e., Durango” zip code 81***. I am against the White House’s request of $1.4 billion from the Federal budget as a down payment on a $20 billion wall on our southern border. I am opposed to the wall and opposed to funding a wall as it is unnecessary and harms the environment.
