Letter: Come in only through the front door

Nancy Pelosi says a wall is immoral and not who we are as Americans. I strongly disagree.

Her use of the word "immoral" for a wall to protect the people of this country is incorrect. The Berlin Wall was a good example of an immoral wall. It was designed to keep people inside.

President Trump's wall will deter trespassing and force people to come through a legitimate entry point. Her characterization of Americans as people who do not believe in erecting walls or barriers for protection or to enforce the law is also incorrect. If Nancy Pelosi believes a wall is immoral and not who she is as an American, that is her right. I would like her to imagine a place that is important to her, completely open, without any type of barrier or protection against unwanted visitors. Let anyone come in and take, damage or use whatever they want, or stay as long as they want without her permission.

Of course, she would be required to pay for whatever was taken, damaged or used without being able to collect payment from those people. That is what she is telling the American people they must do with their country. If someone is going to visit my home, I expect them to come to the front door and not climb through a window. A wall does not make America bad; it protects its citizens, and ensures that anyone who wants to come here does so through the front door.
