To my fellow American Citizens. My name is Louis Baker, I have been in the Las Vegas community since 1950. What I would like to speak to you about is something that both of the nations that borders America, Canada and Mexico will benefit from. It is somewhat of a compromise, necessary to the success of securing our borders in a mutually friendly, beneficial way, providing business and security advantages as well as eliminating needless expenses of a wall or fence, with all the required maintenance, manpower and operational costs.
While I am not able to explain ASBE, in this short introductory statement, what I can say is that my proposal produces income, it is an asset not a liability like a fence or wall, more effective an everlasting.
It is environmentally friendly, allows new opportunities, new infrastructures, new resources, new trade and better cooperation between the countries, that until now has been a bitterly contested free for all.
What I am suggesting will be publicly funded, Like Hoover Dam that is self supporting, ASBE with many streams of revenue will be self supporting and pay for itself many times over. It will take mutual consent and cooperation between the three nations, beneficial to all.
I’m not content with same old or repeating failed policies, or political opposition. It is hard to argue against securing militarily mobility on the borders I am able to conceive different approaches to eliminate liabilities and turn them into assets. The birth of air flight was an inspiration of two individuals the Wright brothers, ASBE is an extension of their endeavors. This message of cooperation and unity will change our relationship with our neighbors for the benefit of the Americas offering new hope, new frontiers, new freedoms and fantastic opportunities that have never existed before in our three countries.
LOUIS BAKER, ASBE.
