#1 High walls make good neighbours.

#2 Good. As Ruben Navarette points out:

As a Never Trumper, I didn’t get it. So, I interviewed some Latinos for Trump and I got an earful. Many of them saw themselves not as Latinos but as Americans, and so they weren’t hung up on Trump’s anti-Latino screeds. They didn’t like or trust Clinton, appreciated Trump’s frankness, wanted a strong leader, and thought he was right about a lot of issues, including trade and immigration.

Yes, immigration. What most non-Latinos don’t grasp is that Latinos are ambivalent about illegal immigration. They have a front-row seat not just to the pain of deportations, but also to how many immigrants commit crimes or abuse social services.

In 2016, an astounding 29 percent of Latinos voted for Trump.

And now, two years into his presidency, polls show that his support among Latinos is somewhere between 33 and 41 percent.

#3 not as Latinos but as Americans

Boy howdy, snuck that one right by ya didn't they?

That's the whole point of immigration to be American sans hyphen. This is just part of the PC identity crap.

#5 How much time will it take to complete the 2000 mile fence? What is it, something like 533 years? Indeed faster please.

#6 Someone brought up an interesting point:

And why do these people, supposedly fleeing intolerable conditions in their homeland, carry little flags from their homeland and break into its national anthem when the TV cameras show up?

#7 Because they want to be here, in our country. They want the benefits of living here and attaching themselves to the taxpayers wallet like ticks and still retain their former national identity.

#8 The fence is a complete joke. Way to easy to climb. Now if they covered the top with razor wire. I fairness my group were hardcore mountaineers.

A bit surprised no one else has noted this.
