That would never happen, It you think that the Mexican government is going to shoot themselves in the foot, you don't know the Mexican Government. Regarding the wall that Trump says he is going to build. I think than rather than spending the money on a wall he will get his Republicans buddies to vote once  and for all for an immigrantion bill that will allow then to really curtail the illegal entry. Remember he is not against Mexicans, he is against Illegals. sorry that you have never noticed that.

There are multiple issues here and it is a perfect case where one size does not fit all and the cliches do not address the issues.

 

First of all, there are criminals coming over the border - and they are generally not doing so legally. I assume we can all agree on that.

 

"Mexico is sending" - I dunno about that, but they are coming through Mexico.

 

I'll say again, the purpose of the "wall" (or whatever is used to secure the border) is not to stop immigration - it is to stop illegal immigration.

 

"They're bringing drugs" - aren't some doing that??

 

"And some I assume are good people" - yep, and that is the key. Separate out the legal from the illegal and the good people from the nogoodnicks. That requires border security.

For those more interested in reality than funny names it should be obvious that Mr. Trump has no problem with Mexicans nor with Mexican immigrants. His concern is with illegal immigrants from wherever. That is something all citizens should be concerned about and expect their government to deal with.


"For those more interested in reality", here is what "Mr. Trump" actually stated:

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

I can only hope that DT isn't quite the A-hole he comes across as to many of us, but uses those ridiculous sound bites to get people's attention .. and really wouldn't do half the ridiculous things he's suggested.

The sad thing is that this country's voter base would even be considering a person for POTUS that has said he will build a wall on any of our borders.

My guess - and I'm certainly no fan of DT - is that 99.9% of these threats are just posturing. In the end, whether he becomes POTUS or goes back to being a wheeler-dealer business mogel, all of these entities will quietly cave in, because they don't want to lose their relationship with the U.S., or lose any business DT might bring them.
