Why does Trump want to build a wall between the United States and Mexico?A Question A Day
Mexico and the United States share a border over 1,800 miles long… But their standards of living are not the same: the United States is the richest country in the world whereas half the population of Mexico is poor. 12 million Mexicans have chosen to live in America, of which 6 million are illegal immigrants. These immigrants cross the border, often risking their lives, in the hope of a better life. In fact, the american mexican border has become one of the busiest passages for illegal immigrants in the world.
The american president Donald Trump, got elected by promising to make the United States great again. He believes a strong country is a country with closed, well guarded borders!
According to Trump, Mexicans take american jobs.
And even threaten their security. He therefore promised to protect the United States by building a 1,000 mile long wall along the border. But this wall raises many problems, starting with the cost: several billion dollars! Mexico feels angry and humiliated, especially as Trump wants to make Mexico pay. Opponents of the american president denounce the wall as being contrary to american values; what made it strong. A haven of refuge for migrants from everywhere.
