If The U.S. Wants To Build a Border Wall, Why Should Mexico Be Expected To Pay For It?


Is there any reason why Mexico should pay for a wall that the current U.S. administration wants to build?

    Liz I get from your heartfelt comment that you believe inferior, safety defective and adulterated food should come here and compete with American made products that meet our standards. Just me maybe but I am tired of that. Car seats made in Mexico??

    I was just thinking about the analogy this morning. If you have a problem with your neighbor, you put up a fence, but you don't send them the bill for what you did to solve your problem and make you more at ease.

    I could work that way, sure, but I think there is a bigger issue here Trump will get to.

    Thanks to NAFTA Americans, truckers most recently by the thousands, have lost jobs. that will change. Many things will change, not just a Wall or tax.

    Very interesting number for us Californians. We are looking at a probable tab of 200 billion$ for a bullet train that makes absolutely no sense.

    14 billion compared to 50 billion a year in remittance exceptions to existing law?

    Out here when someone does construction that lays the ground barren, they have to build retainer type wall to keep mudslide and runoff from going on another's property. This idea that the creator of a nuisance should get a free wall is nonsense.

    That is the kind of "stated as fact" comment that insures there is no civil discourse. Are you trying to tell the truth from your opinion or trying to make sure two sides cannot work together? You do well with the later.

    Good answer, and it still doesn't cover the extent of how and why, one way or another Mexico WILL pay for it. They don't have a choice in the matter... other than to play nice and pay for it, or play it the way they are now pay 100 fold.

    Understood but why? A bad land owner creates a hazard to effect an adjacent landowner. He has to build a wall to keep his hazard in. The Law since before Plato. Why different now? In Mexico you cannot set a border between properties without a wall.

    He knows the wall will stop no one, in light of the sophisticated tunnels that already exist! So, you build a 30-ft. high wall? Go under it. Or get a 31-ft. ladder! HA!

    Did U attend college, or public school? Did you not know that for the supply side of the equation to function there must be a demand? White Americans have created a demand for cheap Mexican labor. White Americans have also created a demand 4 drugs.

    Submarines and elephants. If there be demand here there will be ingenuity to supply that demand. Can we cut that supply chain by wall and personnel? I think so. Force the enemy into a narrow of passage and you can cut them off at the pass.
