Of course I said to begin with its probably not going to happen.
But look at this way - You have an intermingling series of problems in the USA, in Mexico, all over the World for that
matter - All related to poverty - Poverty sucks!
So the current thinking of Trump and his followers is that if we could stop the flow of illegal and basically poor Mexicans
[and others] from getting inot the United States we could take the load off the US and all will be well
- This is like trying to fix a hemorrhage with a bandaid - It won't work.
Just because communism ended in Russia doesn't mean the poor classes of the World are going to go away
- Look what's happening in France!
It was Trump the candidate who said [referring to poor blacks in inner cities] 'what have you got to lose'?
Do we really need millions of Mexicans thinking the same way - Hungry and starving people might do
anything to survive - mighten they/
How is it that China took a totalitarian closed communist system where everyone was poor and somehow
integrated capitalism into the system so not only are there now Chinese billionaires but an economy that is
rapidly surpassing the West
Trump wants us to think big - Let's not shoot ourselves in the foot with a useless wall, Let's really think big
and expand the US by adding the people we will need to compete with the Chinese economy of tomorrow.
And you will notice we don't have much of a problem with Chinese immigrants trying to get into the US,
[though a long long time ago they were like your second class Mexicans of today] do we?
- Is it becuase they built their way out of poverty by forgetting about the Great Wall of China from
the past - and opened their minds to the future - Time for us to do the same
