Will this work? Nobody knows, because nobody dares try:
What no one is discussing is that maybe the “solution” is not just to build a wall or stop the funding of the caravans by people who have an agenda to change the demographics of the USA (not to actually help poor people) but to cut crime and corruption in these countries.
This can be done: but when someone tries to do it, the SJW/human rights types oppose this solution.
For example, [Philippine President Rodrigo] Duterte has cut crime here, but the SJW (and the Catholic bishops) are busy demonizing him (often by taking his jokes/irony out of context) because hey, stopping criminals by rough justice is evil…
my answer: Yes, it is evil: better to convert the criminals to embrace Jesus.
But from a pragmatic standpoint, rough justice works. Here the “carrot and stick” approach to drug gangs and drug addicts who were fueling the crime wave enabled the ordinary folks to live in safety. But alas too many of the politicians are using the corrupt and inefficient court system to get away with their crimes, and even when they are arrested, the international human rights types take their part and pressure the courts to let them go.
Yes, Mrs. George Clooney, I am talking about you.
Pragmatism, so far as I can tell, is dead; the important thing today is to support the delusions of the ruling class. (At least, that’s how the ruling class sees it, and who are we to point out that they’re completely farking insane?)
