Why would American residents be opposed to a wall that already exists through their city?
This wall would have no impact on their daily lives, it would be outside their cities and secure the border from drug smugglers , terrorists and illegal aliens. Could it be that many of them benefit from illegal activity? How would a wall well outside their city affect families wanting to visit each other, or shop? Answer: it wouldn’t.
The survey is bogus to begin with, 14,000 interviewed, how many Mexicans, how many Americans?
Most border cities are super majority Mexican. Nogales 94%, Yuma city limits: 63%. Yuma county 90%.
Do you think this “survey” might be rigged? Well, do ya?
As the senior Senator from Arizona said, “Build the dang wall!”.
