      THE ONLY WALL TRUMP HAS ANY REAL INTEREST IN...

      "Illegial Immigration" was the cornerstone of Candidate Donald Trump's bit for the Oval Office. He made it the center of his campaign, declaring that he will “build a big, beautiful concrete/rebar wall” on the border with Mexico, paid for by Mexico to stop illegal immigration


      Trump’s core supporters cheered the idea as he whipped crowds into a frenzy by blaming illegal immigrants as the source of American violence and the loss of American jobs. "THE WALL" played into their anger, their fear, their anxiety, their sense of unfairness and loss....all the result of "THEM." Build a wall and keep THEM out. Build a wall and toss those of THEM who should not be here. Yeah....



      It was classic demagoguery and fear-mongering. It’s been done in this nation in the past against Italians, Chinese, Germans, Jews and other groups who become convenient punching bags of political and social frustration.

      Of course he does not really want a wall. Getting it would be very bad news.

      If he were to get his wall then the failure of that wall (and it would fail to do what he claims it will do), the delay in getting it built (ten years is the best estimate I have seen) and the cost of that wall (and it would cost hundreds of billions once all related line items were accounted for) will be massive baggage.

      If he gets his wall, what will his crowds chant? What will he turn to in rallies when the energy flags and the faces look bored? What will he talk about in reporter gaggles?


      He he were serious he would be addressing the real problems.
      • The first real problem of course is a poorly designed visa system, a complex and confused process leading to asylum, permanent residency, and/or citizenship.
      • The second real problem is that American business has been a source of countless low paying, and temporary jobs and that American social service systems provide some level of care for all who are here.
      • The third real problem is a constitutional guarantee that those born here are automatically citizens.
      • The fourth real problem is that border security, on ALL of our borders, needs to be modernized to use an array of measures that help to plug holes in the many points of entry.

      Trump is totally unqualified to handle any of this....and worse, he has no interest in doing so.

          "Statistically, Trump’s vaunted “base” is older and whiter than the population at large. They’re frightened of immigrants because . . . uh . . . well…er . . . uh. Rapists and murderers! That’s the ticket!

          Well, I’ve got a question for my fellow aging white people. With our birth rate at a 30 year low, who’s going to pick up the slack paying into the Social Security and Medicare trust funds we are all taking advantage of now that we’ve become senior citizens?

          And I’ve got a question for all of those people down in the south and in the Midwest living in towns with disappearing populations and closed schools and shuttered churches. Who do you think is going to move into those moribund split-levels and closed storefronts and do the jobs no one else wants to do and help bring those towns back to life?

          It’s already happening. Immigrants are helping to pay the Social Security and Medicare bills. Immigrants are helping to revitalize dying small towns. Immigrants are filling the pews in failing churches. Immigrants are helping build the economy. Immigrants will indeed replace us, because we are not adequately replacing ourselves.

          There is no wall that can be built tall enough or long enough to stop them. Just watch. Immigrants will still be entering this country on the day Trump is exiting the White House."

              Automation will replace most of the jobs that illegals take.

              We need legal immigration for skilled workers. And temporary work permits for unskilled work.

                          Trump has promised massive contracts to build the phantom wall, the contractors are Republican donors, like Barnard Construction, in Montana (a company that didn't even build one of the prototypes). It's about the money as well as being smoke and mirrors to deflect from what? There are so many ugly things going on with him, his treason, his illegal business activities - take your pick.

                              Here's How Long The U.S.-Mexico Border Wall Would Need To ...

                              www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/01/26/us-mexico-border_n...

                              The Mexico-U.S. border is 3,200-kilometers(1988.4 miles) long. In October 2016, documentary filmmaker Josh Begley released a short film showing just how massive a wall would be. #45 will NOT see the wall built in his life time.
