Angela Merkel Trashes Border Walls in Mexico

Written by  Breitbart News

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that border walls “will not solve the problem” of illegal immigration during a visit to Mexico Saturday.

Merkel, sitting next to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at a meeting with Mexican business leaders at the Interactive Economics Museum in Mexico City, said that countries should “forge sensible relationships with their neighbors” who fail to fix the issues driving their citizens away.

Her remarks, translated by The Hill, read:

“Obviously the main reason for people leaving must be addressed on site first, which means putting up walls and cutting oneself off will not solve the problem,” Merkel said, speaking in Mexico City.

“It’s an issue you can study well in the history of China with the (Great) Wall of China, you can study it in the history of the Roman Empire. Essentially, only when great empires have managed to forge sensible relationships with their neighbors and to manage migration has it been a success.”

Merkel added that she doesn’t think that “by simply improving the border facilities you can solve the problem.”

Merkel’s remarks are a veiled shot at President Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise to build a wall on the U.S.

Did anyone see the yuge bullet proof wall they erected on the podium for Obama when he was there a month ago during his treasonous tour? That worked.
She cares more about foreigners than her own countrymen,,,ala hillary clinton.

Didn't Mexico say they were going to build a wall on their southern border? That must be the one she is referring to.

Germany used to be one of my favorite countries to visit for business..... now I hate going there. I has literally changed unbelievably in the past 5 years due to Merkell''s asinine immigration policies. It's amazing how one woman can destroy a once great country... But then again we had Obama for 8 years and America might never recover.

Dumb ass, why didn't you tear down the Berlin wall instead of Regan having to do your job?, You One World Order people have to go, and that will happen as you invite and cater to the people who will kill you!

Merkel says no wall- it won't help... Is that why you had to invite and encourage all those Muslim hoodlums in Angela? I guess Merkel would be happy with some Mexicans to liven things up a bit. Maybe we can pack up a few 100 thousand and ship them over?
