Trump is antagonizing Mexico like crazy. Not only is a former president of Mexico not too happy, but the current president cancelled a meeting with Trump scheduled for next week. I doubt he is making many Mexican-Americans happy either. Trump seems like goal number one is to make enemies. We'll see how that goes...

I think Trump is using the wall to make an example out of Mexico and show the rest of the nations how they are going to be treated if they don't negotiate fair trade policies with the United States. During the last administration there was talk from Mexico of annexing California and Texas and a few other states as part of their country; something virtually all Mexicans from Mexico want but almost none of them in the United States would wish to happen. A wall will certainly serve as a deterrence to that notion.

Conan goes to Mexico to raise wall funds
This is pretty funny! It's nice to be able to laugh over serious political issues.

Ann Coulter slams sanctuary cities
The idea that victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens in sanctuary cities could sue these cities is compelling. That on top of cutting federal funds might persuade them to change their ways.

While southern boarder states worry about drugs being smuggled over the boarder there is a different kind of smuggling going on across the boarders of Wisconsin.

Why People Are Smuggling Illicit, Delicious Butter Into Wisconsin
Jean Smith is kind of modern day bootlegger, but she doesn’t smuggle liquor—she moves butter.

Routinely crammed in her car is a stockpile of butter imported from Ireland. Whenever Smith leaves her home in Waukesha, Wisconsin, to visit relatives out of state, she’ll stop in Nebraska to load up on blocks of Kerrygold butter, which is banned in the state that calls itself, “America’s Dairyland.”

Texas lawmakers scuffle over sanctuary city law
The governor in Texas taking care of business and forcing the sheriff to enforce the law! We need the same kind of action here in California and throughout the rest of the USA. Follow the law or get out and if you're here illegally, then OBVIOUSLY you're not following the law!
