Mexico is lucky enough to not have an EPA.

Sounds like a good place for a detention center for illegals. Maybe that would get Mexico to clean up their shit.

“Walls will not keep out the sewage, the stench, the disease ...”

Build the wall five miles south of the current border. That will help.

It would be a real shame if a large barge filled with our untreated sewage suddenly sprung a big leak in the current leading to Mexico’s five-star tourist beaches.

The US should offer to build the Tijuana water and sewer infrastructure and add a few on exits and entrances to Mexico to cover thew cost. How many years has the US been dealing with this? I would not trust the corrupt Mexican government to take care of this.

Why stop at 5? How about 50? Or 100? Maybe at the Panama Canal?

“Why stop at 5? How about 50? Or 100?”

What would we do with that third-world craphole?

A five-mile buffer zone as restitution for their crimes against us would be about right.

“Maybe at the Panama Canal?”

We should take the Canal back, but we don’t need Mexico.

Hmm. Sounds curiously similar to the results of eating undercooked barbecued iguana.

Just drive the Mexican herd south until we reach the Canal ... simple.

So what’s the problem here? Pour a couple hundred thousand gallons of gas, stand clear, and let a gun ship fire some HE rounds into it.
