I can see it now. Trump would build his wall between the US and Mexico and no doubt put giant lit up Trump signs every few hundred yards.
But seriously, there are real issues at stake here. Let’s forget about the biggest issue being the false assertions that somehow terrorists are getting through the border, that the people that come through are largely criminals, or that the people that come through actually cost most Americans money.
Lets forget all these things and say Trump goes ahead and tries to build the wall. The article in the link below points out many of the difficulties he will face.
Is Donald Trump going to solely negate legal and binding treaties agreed to by the United States of America and its neighbors?
Is he going to abide by federal regulations to protect endangered species?
Is Donald Trump going to respect people’s land rights?
Is he going to respect Native American rights?
What would happen to the strong and positive relationships with have with our neighbors to the north and south?
I’m sure Trump would like to just dismiss all of these issues. And based on his pompous attitude and his general belligerency, I fully expect him to try. But the United States of America is a country founded on a rule of law. Our country has worked so well over its almost 240 years because we have a Constitution in place, a separation of powers, and a rule of law. Donald Trump would have to unilaterally do away with those systems in order to just go out and build a wall. And if he does that, he is no longer acting as a President described in the Constitution of the United States. His actions would be truly unprecedented in the history of this country.
Those are the kinds of thoughts that scare me most about Donald Trump.
