Letter: Sending the military to guard the Mexican border is unnecessary

President Trump acts unhinged because that is all he knows how to do. He is fearful that his base will abandon him because of his failure to deliver his signature idea of a $25 billion dollar Mexican wall that Congress refuses to fund.

He jumped on a Fox News story that irresponsibly reported "caravans" of Hondurans were headed toward us. Mexico stopped the 1,200 person convoy of men, women and children, who were fleeing Honduras because of criminal activity. Now Trump is sending troops to the border, who won't have contact with any immigrants, to dishonestly pretend we need the wall.
