Letter to the Editor: Here’s how you can do your part to get that border wall built

OPINION — Recently we have all experienced various levels of inconvenience – and for some, real hardship – regarding the continuing $5 billion dispute about our president’s border wall.

Here is a proposal to diffuse the situation and to get everyone at least a portion of what they might wish.

My proposal is that we add an option on our tax returns. “If you would like to donate a portion of your tax payment/refund to build a Mexico-USA wall, please check this box.” And there will be a spot for you to specify the amount you wish to contribute.

Given the greatly touted 2018 tax repeal, this should be an easy one to fund. Those in favor have the opportunity to voice their wishes financially.

Our elected Great Negotiator might even get those who file returns south of our shared border to amend their tax system.

At the moment, I believe one peso converts to about 5 cents. Any contributions will help. And should be tax-deductible in both countries.
