Build a Wall! Build a Wall! No, We Meant a Different Wall in a Different Place!
Scroll down, third story. Excerpt: The argument about building a wall to keep out undesirable American citizens is not merely metaphorical. Some Silicon Valley residents don’t want new apartment buildings changing their suburban towns, and they get angry at the thought of affordable housing bringing poorer people to their neighborhoods. Two years ago, about 500 local residents showed up at a meeting to discuss small, temporary housing in San Jose. Many screamed and shouted at Loving and her colleagues. At one point, the crowd chanted “build a wall” to keep homeless people away. So, liberal friends, clearly we now agree on the concept of a wall, we just disagree on where it should be placed . . . except the argument from most folks on the Right is that the wall shouldn’t be designed to keep out American citizens.
