To the Editor:

A recent letter praised President Trump for requesting $2.5 billion to combat the spread of the coronavirus. I would offer that the president take the $3 billion that the military was forced to divert to building the wall and use that money that has already been appropriated to combat this virus. What is more important — a useless wall or the health concerns of the nation?

The wall is useful in it helps the border patrol keep America safe from diseases and a variety of other reasons by channeling immigrants through ports of entry too be processed as more than visitors.
