Poll Finds Majority of South Americans Disapprove of Border Wall. That's the Point!
We all know research institutes tend to spend time on"duh factor" studies. We wouldn't be surprised at research titles such as "Study Finds the Sun is, Like, Really Hot" or "Polls Show Most People Who Eat Spicy Food Have Morning Regrets" (see SURPRISE! Study Finds College Students’ Grades Change with Marijuana Usage and Surprise! New Harvard Study Says Increasing Minimum Wage HURTS Restaurants).
One recent poll revealed a "shocking" truth. Trump's theoretical wall is very unpopular with South Americans:
President Donald Trump’s border wall is not well liked amongst several countries where Trump is trying to enforce illegal immigration to the U.S., according to a Pew Research Center poll released Friday.
In 18 of the countries surveyed, the border wall received the most disapproval, especially in Latin America, where 94 percent of respondents in Mexico and 90 of respondents in Colombia decried the wall’s construction.
The House passed a spending measure with a vote of 235-192 that included funding for a portion of Trump’s border wall. The funding was included as a part of a so-called “minibus,” which packaged together four appropriations bills aimed at funding the Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Energy, water projects and funding to the legislative branch.
That's like conducting a poll and finding: "Majority of Peeping Toms Disapprove of Privacy Curtains" or "Most Burglars Prefer Homeowners Have Cats Not Rottweilers."
Of course South Americans are bummed about the wall. It's a giant hurdle standing between them and naked panhandling in the Big Apple. Neighbors of the U.S. want free access to the mack daddy of countries and, the way they see it, coming through the legal way is too big a hassle. Hence, the sad feels toward the border wall. Which has yet to be built, by the way.
Wanna know why leftists and illegals-in-waiting don't like the wall? They know walls work. If that beautiful 2000-mile long slab of concrete goes up and sanctuary cities go the way of the dinosaur, the fun's over. Unless they have some killer pole-vaulting skills or tunneling expertise, they're s**t outta luck. Maybe a hashtag will work.
Other then entertainment, no intellectually honest American cares about South Americans' opinions on the USA's domestic policies. Would-be fence-jumpers are the exact people we're aiming to keep out of our great nation. If South Americans are that intent on coming here, there's always the legal way.
