Dear Donald,

Glad to see that you decided to not push the issue of funding for your wall this week. Hopefully the government shutdown can be avoided now that the controversial wall funding isn’t compounding the issue. Don’t worry, I am not getting my hopes up that this wall business will be avoided, I got your tweet loud and clear.

Don’t let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc.” @RealDonaldTrump  5:36 AM – 25 Apr 2017

As for it helping stop drugs, human trafficking etc., that might not work as effectively as you think. People will always find a way to do what they want.

In other news, I saw that a federal judge has temporarily blocked a key portion of your January executive order on immigration. Judge William Orrick agreed with Santa Clara County, San Francisco and other jurisdictions that believe this threat of withholding funding from cities that do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement could be deemed unconstitutional. He made his ruling nationwide, handcuffing that key point of the executive order. While this is another setback for you and your administration, it is a win for so many.

We have to celebrate the victories we get, no matter how temporary they may be.
