"I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IF THE (POLITICAL) LEADERS OF THE WORLD COULD SEE THIS PLANET FROM A DISTANCE OF, LET'S SAY 100,000 MILES; THEIR OUTLOOK WOULD BE FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED. THE ALL IMPORTANT BORDER(S) WOULD BE INVISIBLE, SILENCING THAT NOISY ARGUMENT."

Especially since no one has yet to discuss the health and safety of all the “detainees” as well as the various costs under Donald Trump of separating families and who is truly responsible for the deaths of FOUR “detainees” (known to date), let alone if anyone might actually be making a profit from this situation.
