Letter to the editor: Border wall an ineffective answer to real problems

We can be sure that someone has tried to tell Trump that the biggest entry to the U.S. of drugs and aliens will not be closed by a wall since that entry is right through our customs checking. There are too many trucks coming through our borders for customs officials to check more than a small percentage. So they guess which ones to check. Trucks that have drugs well hidden and trucks with humans cramped in hot, airless boxes seeking entry to the U.S.
It would cost a small percentage of his wall to train more customs agents for our borders.
On the other hand, where did Trump get such horrible ideas about what immigrants are like? Beyond that, why isn’t Trump considering helping people where they live so they don’t feel terrified to stay home and so need to move to a safer place?
