Does America Need a “Great Wall”?

blog post 3

Memes like this one make us think twice about our next presidential canditate. In this post, Donald Trump is shown as campaigning and promoting his idea for a wall covering the entirety of the border between America and Mexico. It would strech all the way from California to Florida and would serve the supposed need to keep out unwanted visitors and immigrants coming in from our neighboring country. He is shown as reminding the viewer how many “Mexicans” China has because of their wall, reffering to of course, The Great wall. This type of negative representation hurts the image of Mexicans when really, those who are immigrating are looking for a new begginning or escaping a harsh reality.
