Instead of a wall with Mexico, Develop Border With Projects That Benefit Both Countries.

2020 Presidential candidates, Yang, Sanders, Warren and Immigration Chief Cissna  can take the initiative to develop a better plan for our border with Mexico than a wall. A high volume of Mexican and South American citizens seek economic opportunity or political asylum in America at our border with Mexico. Desperation drives some to attempt unsanctioned border crossing, fueling a demand for "coyotes" who promise to secure illegal entry for money. By putting Refugee Resettlement Zones and Enterprise Zones in a corridor along the border, those awaiting Green Cards or citizenship determination can be self-supporting during processing.

These zones will provide jobs for Americans who can be the managers, English teachers and builders of facilities instead of prison guards for those in detention. Mexico's reliance on natural gas is an opportunity for demonstrating carbon capture and use in industry.  Existing Generation 3 or 4 nuclear power might also be supplied for the Mexican side of the border. These emerging processes can be bolstered with US venture capital and used to supply the electric power for entire border zone, as well as providing water from Desalination plants. Recreational trails with accompanying camping areas in this border area will expand employment opportunities for US Parks Service. These projects would be a good use for the drug money seized from "El Chapo", rather than a wall, which provides only costs, no returns. 

Dear Decision Maker:

Please use your position, and influence as an opinion leader or elected official to promote these strategies to Enhance Border Security, and Boost Economic Prosperity. America has long served as a beacon of welcome and refuge to the citizens of other countries, as our Lady Liberty symbolizes. We can stand behind this proud tradition and solve current immigration concerns with these "Better Than A Wall" Ideas.
