"If sealing the border is the remedy to prevent outside threats, why are efforts to secure the border disproportionately focused on the southern border?"

South is Brown, North is (considered) White.

Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'

Learning to make a meal from scratch is not difficult and need not be time consuming. There are any number of well written, easy to understand books detailing exactly how to prepare anything and everything one might wish to eat.
