Is about to become a reality thanks to Trump’s Concrete Curtain in the desert. (Or Taco Curtain or Tortilla Curtain). So that he can throw all eleven (11) million Mexicans out of the US. Good luck with that. It must have sounded good at those rallies – they bought the con because they are desparate and he knew that he coud fool them.
Of all the promises he made to his most ardent supporters, those two were the bedrock of Trumpism – bulding a wall and deporting 11 million illegal immigrants. He has to deliver or he will be the biggest con man ever elected to the presidency. (Which the majority of the voters already think he is).
Catch is, there already is a wall on the Mexican border. A really long, tall one. It’s just about wherever there are any people or wherever any people might be. But it’s not out in the middle of the desert, where it would be the world’s longest architectural folly, surpassing anything dreamed of by Christo – and not half as pretty. Plus it’s kind of pointless, since there are 11 million illegal immigrants in the US already. And no, they aren’t all going to be deported, not even half. But you knew that before you voted, right ?
I grew up with Mexican Americans. Mexicans are nothing if not resilient. They have endured much and they will endure Trumpism long after he’s dead. Imagine that
