Letter: Employment plan

As far as the effectiveness of the Trump-proposed southern U.S. border wall to keep out all of the “bad hombres” is concerned, there is one major flaw in the plan: Ladders.

You do know they have ladders in Mexico, don’t you, Donald? And shovels, too. Lots of ladders and lots of shovels. Really tall ladders and great big shovels. But please go ahead and build the wall anyway. If Trump is true to form, he will outsource the work, like he does with his.

It will keep a lot of Mexican workers busy for many years. It seems a just punishment for disrespecting our borders.
