The Donald Trump administration is signaling the end of a Progressive era if the billionaire businessman fulfills only half of the promises that he had made during the campaign.
One of those promises was the securement of the southern border of the United States by building a “big” and “beautiful” border wall.
Several offers of help have been made to see that the task gets done.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson has proposed that the labor needed to complete the unfinished wall along the border should come from inmates within the penal system.
“I can think of no other project that would have such a positive impact on our inmates and our country than building this wall.”
The sheriff explained that if such a proposal was acted upon, the inmates would be giving back to their communities and providing a benefit to the nation.
“Aside from learning and perfecting construction skills, the symbolism of these inmates building a wall to prevent crime in communities around the country, and to preserve jobs and work opportunities for them and other Americans upon release, can be very powerful.”
Since that time, Leftists have proclaimed that an endeavor like building a southern border was not financially or logistically possible, and that to even propose enforcing American immigration laws was somehow racist.
Sheriff Hodgekins is not the only one with a suggestion on where Trump can find the resources needed to build his wall.
Enrique Escalante, the CEO of Mexican company Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua also offered his company’s assistance in building the southern border wall as well.
What do you think? Should prison inmates be tasked with building the southern border wall?
