Letter: Technology for border security

To the Editor:

Border security comes through better use of technology – technology that is always improving, technology that can be updated, technology that changes with the times, technology that addresses issues that a border wall simply cannot. 

I am realistic enough to know that border security is not Trump’s main reason for wanting a wall.

He has to play to his base, and he has to appease people such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

They are holding him hostage.

Trump also has to fulfill a campaign promise in order to remain credible with his base. To protect his own fragile ego and to shore up support from his followers, he has to have a wall and nothing less than a wall.

He’s holding 800,000 federal employees and their families hostage to satisfy his own ambitions at the expense of the American people.

We must counter him and demand – yes, demand – that border security be provided in the most effective and cost-effective way possible – through technology.
