There are two points everyone should understand:

1) The "border crisis" is completely manufactured by Trump's own policies. If he treated migrants humanely, there would be no crisis.

2) A border wall is not border security and would fix nothing. It's just a vanity project.
Another point people should understand is that most refugees at our border are fleeing from chaos caused by our own policy.

Our drug laws make Central American gangs profitable. Our border laws make traffickers profitable. Our refusal to fund foreign aid makes people flee to us.
Quite simply, we have spent years tossing lit matches into our neighbor's backyard, and when our neighbor comes to our door saying "My house burned down, I need a place to sleep," we're slamming the door in his face.
