Frankly I don’t want America to look like the Berlin Wall. I saw what was left of that wall and it’s ugly.
Canada is our neighbor too. Shouldn’t we build a wall both north and south and then we can truly be isolated? That and high tariffs should complete the process of making America great again 😞
I forgot, we don’t have a problem with Canadians sneaking into the US, they are smarter than that.
Or maybe it has to do with the fact that poverty in Canada is about 9% while it’s 52% in Mexico and who knows what in Central American countries.
So a good strategy seems to be to keep jobs out of Mexico by forcing work to stay here while increasing the prices Americans pay for goods and services. That has the additional benefit of increasing poverty in our neighboring country. I mean if you have all the poverty you can use, why try and scale a wall to come to the US.
After WWII there was something called the Marshall plan to rebuild Europe including Germany in part to keep communism out and to avoid the mistakes following WWI.
Just maybe helping to build the Mexican economy and lower poverty there could dissuade Mexicans from leaving.
One thing is for sure, a wall won’t work and a wall is demeaning to the United States of America.
