Romel Cuello’s ideas for the border

Dear Editor,

Methinks that if we plan to defend our borders, we must build population centers along the area. The intruders are people who live there. We must send people to live, not just visit. I know some of our strong youth are badly in need of a purpose in life, and what is better than land to work on and call their own?

If we only try to mind it, and not live and love it, we will lose it.

Government must start encouraging communities along our border with Guatemala if we intend to have them respect us.

Belmopan needed incentives for people to stay there at the start, and we must do the same for new border communities.

How about instead of sending them to prison for minor stuff, e.g. .06 grams of marijuana, we send them to do community life along the border?

‘Nuff said.

Regards,
Romel Cuello
