Donald Trump's "family values" and the Wall (put Mexico "Under the Dome")


Donald Trump has released his strongman plan for making Mexico pay for a “Green Monster” wall along the southern border with Mexico.  He would use his own interpretation of the US Patriot Act to stop payments from illegal residents in the US to relatives in Mexico, highlighting Mexico’s lack of welfare programs or social safety nets (effectively run by drug cartels in many areas, rather like ISIS).

 He would relax the rule once Mexico made a downpayment on the wall.  Reuters has the story here.

Bob Woodward and Robert Costa have a more detailed story here.

Trump’s own explanation on his site on the Wall is here.
