Letter: Verde Connect just a faster way of getting from VOC to 260

It is a very out-of-the-way bypass, if you can call it that. Anyone who is going to stop at Hamburger Junction is going to stop there, whether Verde Connect is built or not, as it is the only gas station/food area and everyone will have to go by there anyway, Verde Connect or not.

2016: Trump claims in campaign speeches he is going to build a wall. A big beautiful wall. And Mexico will pay for it. Rally after rally Trump asks his audience “what are we gonna build?” “A wall!” they shout. “Who’s gonna pay for it?” “Mexico!” they parrot back.
