The question in my mind is whether the border situation is an “emergency”.
Without trying to define “emergency”, we have a problem that will become totally out of control if we let it grow.
The damage would be as catastrophic as a military invasion would be.
It is extremely important (an emergency) that we take control of the border immediately.
Is cancer an emergency? Well lack of border control is exactly like a cancer going untreated. It can only get worse.
