Big story this week? Donald Trump went to Mexico and talked about? Last week Donald Trump seemed to be pivoting on the border policy. This week? He seems back on track. Build a wall. Yep, it’s back. Key word there is “seems.”
Here’s the deal, Donald Trump? Probably not a racist. Does he say some uncouth things? Yes. But does he say those uncouth things about everyone? Yeah, pretty much. Equal opportunity bad mouthing. I see a new hashtag.
Wall = Security. Basics.
As to having a wall, a border to delineate countries? Why is that a racist idea? If it affects everyone equally, not a racist policy. Keeping your borders defined and protected is not racist. Not now, not ever. If a country doesn’t have borders, it’s not a country. Seriously, how is this hard?
People are coming to America because they’re not being turned away. Worse, they’re given free stuff. How anyone is surprised we have illegal immigrants flooding across the border is beyond me. Imagine living in Mexico. Not too hard, the nightmares. The country north of the border doesn’t have secure border, and bonus, they’ll give you free crap. What do you do?
Not a trick question.
Look, I’m sorry Mexico sucks. Seriously. But America has to care for America first, and that includes protecting the borders, knowing who comes into and out of America, and keeping American interests in line with American interests. I ask again, how is this hard?
