The future president should, and that way Mexico can get the new policy without CNN's spin added.

I hope Pena Nieto stands his ground about his position on the wall, as he did in this interview with CNN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWMhjKfZ57U&feature=yout... No spin here - His words.

And I hope he gives Trump the same opinion of the wall as did Vincente Fox:

So, are you demanding Mexico take down its 'wall' and allow Guatemalans unrestricted crossing into Mexico?

What's wrong with using border crossings and respecting a nation's laws. You get FMMs, right?

If your questions are directed at me then my rhetorical answer to your first question is, "Umm... what does this have to do with this thread?". Seriously, I think the idea of building a huge, impossibly expensive wall is a ridiculous idea, especially when Trump is insisting that another country pay for it. It's Trump's baby - Why the hell should Mexico pay for it? Oh, and one other thing: Doesn't it seem a whole lot more logical to put emphasis on reforming the way that the majority of illegal immigrants (more than 40%) come in to the country - by overstaying their visas? "Build a wall" sounds so simplistic, and to people who don't know better, it may sound great. I'm on the obverse - I have a strong feeling it's just another fantasy idea with no actual realistic basis. The emphasis should be put on bolstering policy, not bolstering a physical barrier.

Try this idea on for size: Help Mexico improve their economy, and it's likely to positively effect the amount of illegal Mexican immigration. If things are good in Mexico, why go to the US? This being said, there needs to be more regulation of illegal immigration that originates outside of Mexico. For example: Indians who enter the US via Mexico.

To answer your second question: There's nothing wrong with using border crossings to help control illegal immigration. But an FFM type form doesn't really do a lot to prevent illegal immigration.

The king of hate is taking his hateful show to Mexico today. Should be entertaining fodder for the news. I hope Mexicans give him the unwelcome he deserves.

What's ridiculous is that some still take this literally. a 2000 mile brick wall? The Chinese didn't even come close to that.
There may be a wall, and if so, I would see it as a reaction to the disrespect shown the US, as well as a sign of the changing times, but that wall, if it materializes, will be wearing boots.

I, personally, can't wait to see what occurs... this is too funny.
I have yet to meet a Mexican who doesn't think that Trump is a bigoted payaso to the nth degree.

Of course, their feelings towards Piña Nieto are not so loving, either.

I hope this blows over as a non-event. I can't see anything good coming out of it. If Nieto tries to increase his lousy ratings using the meeting he'll need to be very hostile towards Trump to appease the disgust felt for Trump by Mexicans.

I also hope Nieto introduces Trump to habanero based appetizers at the start of the meeting. :D

The Great Wall of Rump. We have a wall. Maybe this is the jobs program the David is waiting for.


It will be a beautiful wall!

I hope Piña Nieto was a slip. I am reminded of the ex-president of Panama, Manuel Noriega, who was callled La Piña because of his facial acne scaring. He was involved in drug smuggling and spent time in US jails. The correct name for everyone is Peña Nieto.

"The David"... I don't care who you are, that's funny!

We already have a wall, it just isn't completed... Have any of you been to Tijuana and not seen the border wall?

The current fence obviously doesn't work at making people use the legal border crossing...

I took these photos while waiting in line at Mexicali last year:









Any questions?

Electricity and Razor wire would make the current wall/fence much more effective, and wouldn't cost very much..DK? would you show us a picture of Mexico's wall between them and Guatemala? Or is that just more of your BS?
