In 2014 the Afghan opium cultivation has once again hit a record high, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s 2014 Afghan Opium Survey. In the course of the last four years, there has been a surge in Afghan opium production. The Vienna based UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) reveals that poppy cultivation in 2012 extended over an area of more than 154,000 hectares, an increase of 18% over 2011. A UNODC spokesperson confirmed in 2013 that opium production is heading towards record levels
American Are Deeply Involved In Afghan Drug Trade A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford “U.S.-allied drug dealers are put in charge of the police and border patrol, while their rivals are placed on American hit lists.” If you’re looking for the chief kingpin in the Afghanistan heroin trade, it’s the United States. The American mission has devolved to a Mafiosi-style arrangement that poisons every military and political alliance entered into by the U.S. and its puppet government in Kabul. It is a gangster occupation, in which U.S.-allied drug dealers are put in charge of the police and border patrol, while their rivals are placed on American hit lists, marked for death or capture. As a result, Afghanistan has been transformed into an opium plantation that supplies 90 percent of the world’s heroin.

The American tax payers are losing 90 billion dollars a year because of illegal aliens, so a 10 billion dollar wall would be a no-brainer investment for the American tax payer.

Seriously though..whats the big deal with the wall.

The wall represents a failure of two neighbors to get along.
You'd think, that with NAFTA, more US Corporations would set up factories in Mexico, and this would reduce the need for Mexicans to cross the border into the USA to find work. They could then just stay in Mexico, and work for the US employers right there. So, if NAFTA was really given time to be truly successful, the Wall would eventually not be necessary at all.
Trump plans to bring back those US Corporations that have opened factories in Mexico, so he needs a big WALL to prevent the flow of Mexican people into the USA that will cause.
