Peace and Joy to you too, Arturo!

Your comical reply to my message already gave me more of both. The phrase “The pot calling the Kettle Black” is appropriate here. I don’t need to rebut every one of your errors and fallacies from your original post” Kady M has already done a comprehensive rebuttal that I couldn’t improve on: she knows her economic theory. All that was left for me to do was to point out the unethical nature of the argument that America needs illegal labour to do work that you can’t afford to pay an American to do.

I’m not a die-hard Trumper by the way: I don’t like the man, but I approve of a President being determined to deliver on his election promises.

And disagreeing with you does not equate to “insulting” you: you offend too easily, I think. To be willing to undertake civil discourse with others does not mean I have to approve of your opinions, and the conversation cannot be meaningful unless I point out where you are clearly wrong: Undercutting US workers with illegals is clearly unethical as well as illegal, and it is a cop-out to say you pay them a fair wage when you clearly don’t.

The wall will be built, because the USA needs defensible borders, and it does not need illegal immigrants to take American jobs.
