Nice try.

According to your own post:

"None will starve. Most numbers are over inflated for political reasons.

According to Pew in 2017 (linked):

...unauthorized immigrants are over represented in farming and construction occupations (26% and 15%, respectively). In all industries and occupations, though, they are outnumbered by U.S.-born workers. (emphasis added).

I am well aware of what I wrote and to whom; given the reason which was.

Starve' was in reference to the migrant workers.

Now using my post again, an illegal population of near 11 million, taking the percentages of jobs...is quite alarming, no?

No.

I'm not that afraid of Mexicans to pay billions for a wall that they will ignore or penetrate.

Wow, imagine how many people could have healthcare with that amount of money.


Imagine how many people can purchase their own healthcare with money earned working on construction of said Wall.

A lot less than the number who could have it if we gave it away.

Sounds like Trump might be on a covfefe jag.




“As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them — they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over. As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs.”

Justification for giving away something most have worked quite hard to earn?

Well, Big Pharma gets their poppy from Afghanistan.

Mexico cultivates their own poppy, and synthesizes Fentanyl with ingredients ordered from China, then mix the two together to distribute on the streets of America.


Hook line and sinker. What will the new scape goat be after all the opioid kingpins in FL Drs offices are suspended from practicing, and Trumpelstiltskins wall is too high to pretend heroin is being flung over the top?

Back to the blacks in Los Angeles? Ricky Ross #2, the drug importing plane flying boat driving Mexican cartel kingpin doctor from Florida? Just make up whatever and submit it to your local office. Your fantasy is as good as any!

If one thinks a wall is going stop the drug problem..they are seriously kidding themselves..better build that wall around the entire country. In fact it might cut supply down a bit and in turn increase price and in the end probably more people die.
You might as well make it a dome.

Health care is something to be earned?

And it's now a SHORTER wall.



“You know, we've already started the wall because we're fixing large portions of wall right now,” Trump said. He explained that the repairs were “making it new,” and thus “in a true sense, we've already started the wall.” His remarks suggest that his promise to “build the wall” could involve erecting as little as 50 miles of new barriers.

(emphasis mine)


Bloomberg also goes with "shorter and see through" story

(from the Bloomberg article)
“It could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what’s on the other side of the wall,” Trump said. “As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them -- they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over.”

Trump also told reporters there is “a very good chance” that solar panels can be added to the wall to offset costs. He also said he sees an opportunity to cut the length of the wall to as little as 700 miles rather than the entire length of the border, which runs about 2,000 miles.


Further remarks suggest that he's just going to "fix the wall" and then go around and take credit for it.



He also suggested to reporters that existing border fencing is a starting point for what he envisions. "We’re taking wall that was good but it’s in very bad shape, and we’re making it new," he said. "We’re fixing it. It’s already started.


And Mexico still says it's not paying.

...and then lose it and go on unemployment (if any's left) or welfare (ditto) or simply lose their houses and their possessions and do what they did in the 1930's (no welfare, no support systems) -- live out of cars or in hobo camps.

Temporary jobs are not permanent solutions. Temporary labor jobs are definitely NOT labor solutions (and are often filled with disadvantages such as "foreman only hires day labor folks and only for cash."

Trumps pulling a "Trump" on his wall plan. Guess in reality it's no surprise.

I'm shocked... shocked, I tell you... So that's "prosecute/persecute Hillary", "Chinese currency manipulation", "sit down over hamburger with Chinese leader and talk things out", impose a 35% tax on Ford cars brought into the country, order Nabisco to make oreos in America, tax imports 30%...or was it 35%, use renegotiation to cut the budget by 20%, get rid of gun free zones at schools and military bases... (or at least that's what he promised in 2016)

House bill allocates enough money for another 28 miles of wall and 32 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico.
