Well, ask Mexico why they built a wall on their southern border..


How about we ask them if it solved whatever problem they built it for?


It's still up so it must have.



There is no wall on the border, although there are sections of fence near official border crossings.[1] The Usumacinta River as viewed from Chiapas, Mexico.

let me be clear that I am all for keeping illegals out. I just dont think a wall will work. It needs to be guarded by people not fences.

Yeah right like they dont dig effing tunnels. Are you just being deliberately ignorant because you think I want illegals here?

Why do they need a wall for CCTV? Maybe the Mexicans will be delayed 10 seconds with their ladder?

It's probably for the best, He found out he couldn't trust the Company's in Mexico who could do it.

If you want something done right, you've gotta do it yourself.

Aside from prisoners whom sit for years well fed staring and studying the limits of their contraptions that confine them, I bet I could build a wall that keeps wayward people out.

Why does no one talk about a wall with Canada? Im on board with that.

Yeh its a joke the drone can carry the naughty stuff. So that's most of the border guards redundant. The southern agriculture industry relies on Mexican labour and would collapse without it. If you cant get employment why would they bother anyway.

See, Mexico, Trump isn't so bad after all.. He's making sure we (the US) cover the cost of this wall.. But don't you worry, you guys get enjoyment out of it too!

There are ways to make Mexico fund the wall indirectly, like increasing tariffs at ports of entry from Mexico, increasing costs of temporary and worker visas, taxing goods coming across the border etc. But if you actually want to get it done fast the US is going to have to take the initiative.

Either way it's good to see someone actually doing something about it.

If Mexico funds the wall, Mexico owns the wall, and the entrance-exit points. Unacceptable. America must own the wall.

On second thought, it might be cheaper to simply catch illegals and bus them back home, after a few months in a "behavior correction" center.

With Mexico's economy right now, I really didn't expect them to fund it. I saw something about gas prices there being higher than the prices here. And it's the same gas they sell us. It said something about them hiking the prices so some government folks didn't have to take a pay cut. It's a mess down there. The wall is their last priority.

Not without someone there at all times to make sure they dont climb over it. I would rather towers with snipers every 500 yards. lol.

Well, duh. Of course Mexico wouldn't fund a wall on our side of the border that is much more important to us than to them. Sure, they may be persuaded to contribute some for a good PR boost or in exchange for something, but nobody really ever believed Trump would get Mexico to pay. That was hyperbole. The people soaked it jn for the mere sentiment.

There is already a wall along the border.
