Donald Trump’s call for building a wall between Mexico and the USA is one of the biggest cons ever, according to the recent Adam Ruins Everything.
Adam illustrates how a border wall wouldn’t keep out legal immigrants who overstay their visas, how racist mass deportations have historically led to disaster, and how immigration courts are tied in a Gordian knot.
Just building the wall will be practically impossible, Adam Conover says.
He added: “It would have to stretch over 2,000 miles of rough terrain…and all that distraction is monstrously expensive. Just building the wall would cost between 15 and 25 billion dollars!”
“It would easily be one of single the most expensive pieces of infrastructure in American history costing as much as 20 Hoover Dams or NASA’s entire annual budget.”
He adds: “Not to mention the astronomical cost of staffing and maintaining the wall which taxpayers like you and your children will be stuck paying forever.”
“Even just faking the wall for our show was prohibitively expensive.”
And as for managing illegals? He says: “Increasing security at the border will never stop immigration.”
When a security guard actor balks at this statement saying no illegals are getting by him, Adam adds: “Yes they are — 27-40 per cent of all undocumented immigrants in America came here on planes!
“They just overstayed their VISAs!”
