1. the mexicans coming here are criminals? actually, they commit less crime than most americans do. it'd make more sense for canada to say 'we don't want americans immigrating here because they're criminals'. would that sound right to you, as an american?
2. the wall makes sense? i mean if you can get it cheap, sure. but what is it really accomplishing? if we really wanted to stop them from stealing jobs, we'd enforce the rules about not hiring immigrants. as far as drugs go, most will just find ways to go around the wall and smuggle them in, so it won't make much of a difference. i mean, we might save money on deporting them, but that costs less than a billion dollars so you have to consider the time value of money. we'd save money on putting them in jail, but most of them being in jail for just being illegal isn't worth it. who cares if they are here if they aren't doing anything detrimental to us? i mean it does cost less than a bilion to put the criminal immigrants in jail, but this is more like people commit crime so we put them in jail. it isn't really something specific to immigrants necessarily. and again you have to consider the time value of money. so i conclude the wall is only worhtwhile if we can do it cheap enough.
3. obviously saying mexico would pay for the wall never made sense from the beginning despite his supporters eating it up. everyone's all but gave up on that pipe dream.
trump said he doesn't talk about how good the economy is during rallies as much because people get bored with it after not too long. they eat up the immigration stuff though, so he just dives right in and it explains how and why he over blows it all.
