The Great Wall of US

5 Sep

Image result for the great wall

Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, says that if elected he still promises to build an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall,” that will be bolstered by technology and paid for by Mexico.

The Mexican President Enrique Peña, however, said that Mexico will in no way pay for any wall built by The United States of America. And one would probably have to agree with the Mexican President because Mexico is a sovereign nation and no free state would ever pay for something that some other nation has built and owns…absent of an act of war that is.

Will America declare war on Mexico if Donald trump is elected President of the United States? How else will he get the good people of Mexico to fork over their hard earned money? Swap for drugs? (Americans use more drugs than any other nation by far) Send them a bill? (every Republican knows that Hispanics/Mexicans/Whatever, don’t pay their bills) Maybe the border guards can hold every Mexican that they catch trying to get over the wall upside down and shake out the change from their pockets? That might help.

In any case, Mr. Trump, nor any of his supporters, has yet to explain how they will get Mexico to pay for the mighty 19 hundred mile wall. But be that as it may no can can even explain how…or even where for that matter, this impenetrable, powerful and beautiful wall will be built because 12 hundred of those miles include the Rio Grande River.

Will we build a wall along the river also? This, I think, might be a first among walls. And on whose side would the wall be built. If we build said wall on the Mexican side then we will have to invade Mexico and confiscate a portion of their land on which to build our wall and a demilitarized or neutral zone from which we could defend it. Otherwise they might just knock the wall down!

If we build the wall on our side of the Rio Grande River then all Texans and Americans will be cut off from using the river as a water resource or for recreation purposes or just for looking at. I suppose we could paint a 1,200 mile mural of the river on our side of the wall. After all what’s a little more expense when spending billions in the first place?

But in spite of all of these questions that I have (I don’t know about anyone else) according to a recent Pew Research center analysis, more Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico from the U.S. than have migrated here since the end of the Great Recession, and that’s  according to newly available government data from both countries. The same data sources also show the overall flow of Mexican immigrants between the two countries is at its smallest since the 1990s, mostly due to a drop in the number of Mexican immigrants coming to the U.S.

So who needs a wall? Besides how will all of my Trump supporting friends who just love to vacation in Mexico because it’s so beautiful, cheap and a place where the people are so friendly, going to get there if we build a wall?

I know what you are thinking… they’ll fly or take a boat! So I guess it’s a good thing that Mexicans haven’t learned how to do either of those things yet isn’t it?

And yet, Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, still says that if elected he promises to build an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall,” that will be bolstered by technology and paid for by Mexico.

He just forgot to mention that what it won’t be is practical…nor in any way effective.

    Net migration is back to Mexico. You’re talking facts, good sir, and facts don’t win elections.

    I think you mean 1200 miles of river. And also, apparently electronic surveillance covers much of it. But as king midget observes, facts don’t win elections, and we have the misfortune to have a “reality” TV candidate who understands he doesn’t even need to pretend.

    I heard that Drumpf’s plan has the wholehearted endorsement of Mexico’s Unión Internacional de Túnel Excavadoras.
