Mexico needs aid, not fences

I urge everyone to write to Rep. John Garamendi, asking him to help stop the spending of $30 billion to build a fence at the Mexican border. Lets invest those funds in Mexico — building houses, training workers and expanding education. The Mexican people won’t want to come to the United States seeking jobs.

A steel fence, like war, produces nothing. As American taxpayers, we need to pay attention to what our money is used for. Write to Congressman John Garamendi, P.O Box 440, Walnut Creek, CA 95690; or his Davis office at 412 G St., Davis, CA 95616, 530-753-5301.
