O'Reilly Lectures Former President Of Mexico On The “Humane” Benefits Of A Border Wall
Bill O'Reilly: “My Hypothesis Is That The Wall Would Save Lives ... [It] Would Be Good For Mexico And The United States”
From the May 4 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): So, here's my take on this and you tell me where I'm wrong. Patrolled vigilantly on both sides, on both sides, I think a border wall is actually humane. Because it would cut down on people and drug smuggling, two things that injure human beings as you know. So where am I going wrong?
VICENTE FOX: Well, really facts and numbers, Bill, are totally different to what is being said. And I think it's very important what I have invited you to come to Mexico. But more so I think it's very important to invite Donald Trump to come to Mexico and to learn about the real Mexico, that is I would think totally different. For instance, I was listening that he says Mexico deserves punishment because of the deficit United States has on the trade balance with Mexico which, yes, he is right. It's $50 billion. But does he know that the deficit with China is $400 billion?
O'REILLY: He knows it, Mr. President. He's threatened them too. He knows it but look, let's get back to the wall, let's get back to the wall. My hypothesis is that the wall would save lives, alright? Would be good for Mexico and the United States. Because it would take a lot of the power away from the smugglers, many of whom are cartel members and it would save, you know how people are abused. Poor people trying to get el norte. They are abused by these coyotes. You know that. This wall would not stop it entirely but cut the drug smuggling and people smuggling down. So why don't both countries support this?
