President Donald Trump's proposed wall with Mexico, with its purpose to keep people from entering the United States, is not unlike the purpose of the Berlin Wall and should be named Berlin Wall 2.The wall will do nothing in addressing the plight of those now seeking a better life in this country ("Trump threatens shutdown over border wall, suggests controversial pardon at Phoenix rally," Aug. 23).

Like the Berlin Wall, it will be a costly failure with nothing gained. Maybe the funds associated with building the wall can better be spent in addressing the needs of those with uncertain futures.
