How Trump plans to build, and pay for, a wall along U.S.-Mexico border

The boldest promise of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was also one of his first.

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively,” Trump said, announcing his candidacy on June 16, 2015. “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.”

The big question, now that Trump is the Republican nominee, is how he would do it if elected president.  At the Democratic National Convention, Sen. Elizabeth Warren derided the wall promise, saying it’s never going to happen.

The moment took place during yet another packed house Trump rally, this time in  Costa Mesa, California. Several members of the anti-illegal immigration group, the Remembrance Project were called onto the stage by Mr. Trump to help him emphasize his oft-repeated message regarding the importance of further securing America’s borders.

Jamiel Shaw, who has become an acquaintance of Mr. Trump over the last year and whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant. spoke with both passion and dignity about the change he sees coming in the form of a Trump presidency and then proceeds to tell the horrific final moments of his child.

This is a parent taking tragedy and turning it into action:
