    There is no wall on the Mexico/Guatemala border.

      A lot of Trump supporters in particular now believe this "alternative fact" when what they were really shown was a different Apartheid wall, which served as the inspiration.

      Obama also gave them 75 million to combat illegal immigration which went to fencing if you don't like the word wall. Look it up

        Typically in these situations one would cite one’s own sources.

          yup just like i said look at the whats true part on the snopes link lol. They didn't like the word wall thats the only thing they said was untrue. The 75 million was to secure their border with Guatemala.

          @SmokinJoe23 -

          Ultimately, what all those articles referenced was a February 2016 Congressional Research Service (CRS) report on "U.S.-Mexican Security Cooperation" that mentioned plans for the U.S. to provide >"at least $75 million" in assistance to Mexico. However, that money would not be given to Mexico for the construction of a physical wall (which would largely be impractical given the geography of >the region), but rather it would be provided in the form of U.S. training and equipment assistance (e.g., nonintrusive inspection equipment, mobile kiosks, canine teams, immigration agents) to help >Mexico secure their southern border and better deal with shared U.S.-Mexico concerns over drug trafficking and immigration.

          No mention of a fence or other physical barrier; are there any pics of this wall-like fence barrier structure?
