Liberal Esquire writer visits the border, comes back supporting the wall

A little knowledge and experience go a long way.  Let’s hope the Trump campaign notices.  Truth Revolt reports:

This week on MSNBC's Morning JoeEsquire Editor-in-Chief Jay Fielden describes sending one of his liberal journalists to the U.S.-Mexico border to find out what the locals are saying about illegal immigration. The journalist came back agreeing with Donald Trump saying, "Build that wall."

Fielden went into detail about this accidental journalism:

"You gotta go down there with no preconceived notions, right, just an empty notebook. Go to my former home state and walk the border, drive the border 800 miles and talk to whoever you see and let them tell us what they think about what's really going on -- whether we need a wall, in fact. Instead of hearing it from the debate stage, let's hear it from the people who are down there everyday."

The locals' conclusion? "They said, 'Build the wall,'" according to Fielden. "They said two things -- whether Hispanic, Anglo, Democrat, Republican, uncommitted, clueless, whatever -- they said, 'We want a wall and yet, we want it to be married with some compassion for the people we're trying to keep from jumping over the wall.'"

The Esquire article explains that Hispanics are the ones who are less sympathetic about illegals crossing the border, far more so than whites. Fielden said they view the situation as unfair because many first generation immigrants came over the legal way and are now having to compete for jobs with those doing it illegally on a daily basis.

"Let 'em get in line," he said, quoting one local legal immigrant.

Here’s the segment:

The notion that Hispanics who came here legally are disadvantaged by illegal immigration is a powerful one that should resonate among all Americans, including African-Americans.  It turns Donald Trump from a racist into a defender of poor people who play by the rules.
