It all depends on what you think is a reasonable amount of illegal immigration to accept. Figures suggest illegal immigration was down more than 60% under Trump earlier this year. Is this enough of a drop to prevent the wall's construction? Probably not. All it would require is a different administration to come in and relax the arrest of illegals and the numbers would once again soar.

It seems to me that perhaps the immigrants would rather stay in their own country than live under the Trump Presidency.

I was thinking precisely the same thing. If the bouffant buffoon stays in office for much longer, I can foresee a situation where he'll be "importing" Mexicans to address a shortfall in labour caused by indigenous Americans leaving the country

Did I read aright, people seeking asylum from the USA? That it should come to this!

Unlikely to be true for anyone other than illegal immigrants.

Unlikely to be true for illegal immigrants either I suspect.

I'd guess America under Trump would still be better than wheremany of them come from.

Today white supremacists claimed to have put Donald Trump into the White House, after he blamed "many sides" for the violence between racists and counter demonstrators at a "Unite the Right" event in Charlottesville, Virgina.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...b0909642973a6c

There have been some deaths and several injuries after a car plowed into the crowd. To Trump's credit, he did call for Americans to unite against hate, but saying they will "study" what happened today to "figure out" the problem seems a bit strange.

Aye, it was a popular threat leading up to the election, Americans would sell up and move here to Canada.
Some did....

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ada/101196100/

But, as is often the case others decided to hang tight and see what happens.

We jumped ship in England all those years ago, in part because of Maggie Thatcher. So I can sympathize with these Americans.
