 thumbsup good to hear you're working on it.
You know this reminds me of nyc in the 80ies, are there many gang related issues?
I can imagine Mexican cartels taking over a block or two in the hoods.
Perhaps trumps 'borderwall' isnt the craziest idea (never thought I'd say that.. blink)

^The gangs in Mexico are a horror show and how they've tarnished beautiful Mexico is so sad.  But, yes, the gangs are responsible for the majority of violence coming across the border.  Some from Mexico, some from Central America.  (Check out M13 if you like).  Add to that the drug epidemic in cities like San Diego now and you've got a ghastly situation.  The city has changed drastically in the last few years and not for the better, I'm sad to report.

It is true, the wall is needed in that part of our country right now but also along with a much better immigration policy and coordination of efforts between the local and federal authorities.  And added agents. Even some of the most diehard liberals realize that this is not a Trump issue but a social experiment gone wrong.  Disliking the new administration and fighting against its policies has not decreased the systemic violence, debt and drug-related problems.  Let's just go with that.
