Take care of our own

 

Border problems are beyond description. America needs to take care of its people, especially veterans first. The government can tend to, medicate and heal all those entering against the law, but not our veterans. Even though they have given their souls for our protection and might be expected to do that again, they are being ignored.

We have been told these border crossers have walked 1,000 miles to get here. Have you seen any starving, thirsty, dirty, unclothed or dying people? Who is bringing them to the border, and why and how? Why aren’t we told this side of the story?

It was hard for me to celebrate the Fourth of July this year, as we are not a United States. Let us be selfish and take care of our own first.
