The Trump Immigration Wall
If Donald Trump becomes the next US President do you think their will really be a wall like this separating Mexico from the USA?

It might look like that but it won't stop illegal immigration. Trump also has to realize that unless he is making 100 executive orders he will hardly get the help of congress if his ideas are over the top.

The Mexicans have proven that nothing will stop them so having a tall or thick wall won't make a difference. They will either climb or dig around it thus making it a waste of money.

I believe that if, God forbid, Trump is elected president, he will pull a Sarah Palin: Get bored and quit after two weeks. (I may be wrong about the interval, but I don't think the presidency would hold his interest long. I honestly think he's running as a joke, and all the other candidates are either too stupid to realize it, or they're playing along. I don't know which possibility is more terrifying.).

Trump would fund wall by cutting off remittances
Donald Trump would try to force Mexico to pay for a border wall by targeting billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released yesterday. Or Mexico could pay $5 billion to $10 billion to finance the 1,000-mile wall. Ref. Source 9v.
Trump says he would implement 'extreme vetting' of immigrants:
Donald Trump called Monday for "Extreme vetting" of immigrants seeking admission to the United States, vowing to block those who sympathize with extremist groups or don't embrace American values. He said the policy would first require a temporary halt in immigration from dangerous regions of the world. Ref. Source 4z.
Trump may or may not build a wall, remember it is all politics, there is such thing as false promises before elections. Unfortunately for him, a big wall dividing the US and Mexico wouldn't stop illegal immigrants from getting through anyway.
