Donald Trump’s Wall May Stop Immigrants Who Want to Return to Mexico

Ana Raquel Minian: “Donald Trump’s executive order to build a wall between Mexico and the United States overlooks how the fences, walls, and border-control measures that already exist between the two countries have come to act as a barrier—or a ‘cage of gold’—that discourages migrants from leaving the United States, rather than preventing their entrance in the first place.”

“Trump has never acknowledged that since the Great Recession the net outflow of Mexicans is larger than the inflow, and instead, continues to insist that the wall is necessary to curtail Mexican undocumented migration… But it’s a wall that will likely reinforce the bars of the cage of gold and discourage those who are already here to continue leaving as they have done since the Great Recession.”
