One small problem with Trump's wall.



I forget the exact # but I think something like 40% of undocumented people who stay in America
come here by plane.

1. The ones who come by plane are generally not from Mexico and Central America

 

They are mostly from other countries - and overstay their visas.

2. But some do come from Mexico and Central America by plane.

I am willing to bet that some companies that need workers have people
flown into the United States.

3. True

 

But those who do are likely arriving because they have a work visa or something like that - since they know they would be questioned at the airport upon arrival.

4. The majority of people who are undocumented came in by legal means (student, tourist, or work visas)

and overstayed. Any notion of a wall does nothing to prevent that. That's the fallacy in Trump's proposal.

8. One huge problem with Trump's wall

...is all the rich people who employ undocumented workers, including the man who is trying to get the wall put up in the first place.

Also consider: you could set up a refrigerated trailer to haul people pretty easily. Unless they plan to open every trailer at the border, the wall is no real impediment to illegal immigration. It will stop people walking over.
