Liberals complain that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is racist.
But Breitbart reported that the editorial board of El Manana – one of the country’s largest newspapers – wrote an article titled “Yes to the Border Wall…but in Mexico’s South,” calling for the country to build a wall along its southern border to stem the tide of illegal immigrants coming across from Central America.
But when was the last time you heard liberals talk about how Mexico treats illegal immigrants coming across its own border from the south. Apparently there is nothing wrong with Mexico wanting to build a wall to protect its territory, but when the United States wants to do it, suddenly it is “racist.”
Conservative Post reported how Trump can fund the wall, explaining why it is important and debunked the left’s assertion that it is impossible.
Thanks to Mexicans who live and work in the United States, $24 billion flows into Mexico each year. If the Mexican government wants that money to continue, it will have to come up with a payment of $5 to 10 billion in order to build the border wall, says the Conservative Post.
The Mexican government officials can protest all they want, but if that money gets cut off they will be saying something different.
Conservative Post mentioned three things to help pay for the wall:
“Trade tariffs, or enforcement of existing trade rules.” As Trump has repeatedly said, we need to renegotiate trade deals in America’s favor. Doing so would provide a huge source of money to put toward building the wall.
“Cancelling visas.” America is not required to take in everyone around the world and, as the article pointed out, it is a privilege to come to the United States.
The U.S. holds a great deal of power in these negotiations as Mexico uses the U.S. as a de facto welfare state and also needs visas for business and tourism purposes.
“Visa Fees.” The left regularly likes to talk about increasing taxes on Americans, but what about visa fees? Conservative Post argued that just a small increase in visa fees could pay for the wall itself.
America has to build a wall to protect Americans from drug trafficking, crimes and gangs. We need to start putting Americans first.
Building a wall is not only possible, but it is vital for America’s future.
