21 Funniest, Savage Memes About Trump’s Precious Wall

Fam, nobody is emotionally prepared for another presidential campaign season, but nobody is unraveling in such spectacular fashion as President Trump. Of course, everyone expects him to be the Republican pick (if he isn’t impeached or indicted first), and Trump is doing everything he can to appeal to the base that elected him. We’re two years into his presidency and there has been no progress on his biggest campaign promise: Build The Wall.

In order to get congressional approval to build the most useless piece of infrastructure our country needs, Trump has created a fake crisis at the border. He’s gone so far as to declare a national emergency, quickly followed by a weekend spent golfing at Mar-o-Lago. The internet quickly spit out the most ruthless, hilarious memes our world deserves. This is how we cope.

First, we point out the obvious:

Photoshop is our friend. When reality is fugly, at least Adobe makes it funnier. Honestly, though, a majority of Americans are against the building of a border wall along the southern border.

Then, we romance:

Yup, that would get me, too. “I’m going to write our names in The Wall.” *shiver* No one wants their legacy attached to an ancient system of border security that has failed time and time again. Move on, Trump. The border wall is an ill-conceived solution to a problem that does not exist.

While Americans are screaming over our taxes, Mexicans are chilling. 🍹

Remember when Trump said he was going to make Mexico pay for The Wall? 🤣Now that that’s over, the joke’s on Trump and the world is laughing.

Because, truthfully, The Wall does nothing to address the reasons people are seeking asylum in the first place.

Oh, and all of this is pure populism and nationalism at its worst. Every era has a scapegoat and this era of authoritarianism is targeting Muslims and immigrants, especially Central American immigrants.

It is a laughable (and very expensive) bandaid solution to a fake problem.

We’re in peak low years of illegal immigration. All of this is fake news to the max. There is no crisis at the border other that the crisis being created at the border by the Trump administration. All this presidency has been able to do is tell people they aren’t allowed in breaking international asylum laws.

The best memes point to the hypocrisy of it all.

Liiiike, Flint still doesn’t have clean water and we’re going to use billions of tax dollars to essentially fuel a political campaign for Trump’s re-election? Nope, no thank you, te boté.

Some of the most viral ‘memes’ are just the American consciousness at full blast.

Forcing Americans who serve the federal government to have to go to work without getting paid until POTUS ends his tantrum is not in the service of the American people. That’s right. Trump forced a government shutdown to get his wall funding, the longest shutdown in U.S. history, and lost. All he managed to do was make people’s lives worse, over the holidays, for his vanity project.

Let’s never forget the exposé on Trump’s own undocumented employees.

The New York Times did an excellent exposé that featured Trump’s personal house cleaner, an undocumented immigrant from Central America who he was on jovial terms with until he launched his campaign. They eventually fired her after he became President.

TBH, some of the best memes play off Trump’s childish temperament.

The American people and the rest of the world cannot stop laughing at Trump and his administration. Honestly. Look up major international speeches the president has made and listen closely for all the laughs and uncomfortable silences. They are aplenty.

We laugh at any meme comparing Trump to a Cheeto though. 🤣

Quiere llorar! Quiere llorar! Quiere llorar! Poor man is sad because the American people continue to be against his border wall. It is not okay. It is not going to work. It is a waste of taxpayer dollars and there is no emergency.

The frailty of Trump’s ego is in open season.

Bruise Trump’s ego? He’ll assert his power to get you fired, deported, or just straight mock you in front of crowds of people.

The bottom line here is that Trump’s campaign promises are all a fallacy.

Points to him for pulling out every possible card and failing anyway. Max, this is what we can expect for a wall. 

So liike, what has POTUS even done?

Guy has the highest turnover rate than any other President, meaning he can barely accomplish the bare minimum of his presidential duties.

So gun control isn’t a national emergency, even though children are now routinely practicing ‘active shooter’ drills along with natural disaster drills? That should not be a naturally occurring event. 

No walls on stolen land.

This is all colonialism at its best. White people stealing land, stealing power and pointing to brown people as ‘the other’ and the threat. Plot twist: America is a threat to humanity.

And then there are the pragmatists who truly have no f*cks to give about a wall.

There are people who exist who have lukewarm feelings about immigration and are raging about the pothole they’re driving over cada mañana. Fair enough. At least that pothole is real.

Then there’s this pot of gold:

A video was uncovered of Trump giving a commencement speech in 2004 during which he literally says, “If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. Do whatever you have to do, but get over that wall.” ✊✊✊We can’t even credit Photoshop. That was all Trump.

It’s safe to say we’re all safe from this national emergency.

But not so safe from Trump’s delusions. He won’t acknowledge climate change or California burning up in flames, but he sees a Mexican and orders ICE to pepper spray them. We are not a threat. You are, POTUS.

Short Film ‘So Close To America’ Lays Bare The Facts Of Being An Undocumented Farm Worker

Peter Carrs / So Close to America / Facebook

Immigrants in the United States have a long history of being the scapegoat during times of uncertainty. Every generation has a group of people that were demonized and dehumanized in a false attempt to better the lives of “Americans.” Currently, immigrants from Latin America are being used as the scapegoat by President Donald Trump as he pushes for his border wall to stop what he claims is a crisis at the border. Despite Trump’s claims, illegal border crossings are at record lows and crime levels in border cities are lower than the national average. Filmmaker Peter Carrs is using his own film “So Close to America” to dispel the hurtful and blatantly false claims of immigration leading to crime.

Peter Carrs’s “So Close to America” is a film demolishing the notion of undocumented immigrants getting a free ride in the U.S.

The film’s full title is “So Close to Ameria: Undocumented Farm Workers & The Myth of ‘The Free Ride'” is an intimate look at the daily lives of immigrant farm workers. The subjects of the documentary are the center of one of the great political debates of the 21st century with both parties fighting on opposite sides of the debate.

In the film, Carrs breaks down the facts about immigration and the impact immigrants have had on the agriculture industry. Carrs’s documentary shows that most of the farm workers are immigrants and anywhere between 50 to 80 percent of them are undocumented.

One fact Carrs tackles is the notion that undocumented immigrants are draining the welfare system.

According to Vox, about half of all undocumented workers in the U.S. file federal taxes annually. In 2015, undocumented workers made up $23.6 billion paid to the federal government in taxes. Not to mention the taxes spent buying a home, buying gas, buying groceries, etc.

At the same time, undocumented immigrants cannot benefit from any of the social programs their tax dollars pay for. Why? Federal laws prohibit undocumented immigrants from accessing federal welfare programs. However, some of the children of immigrants do have access to some programs, such as healthcare, WIC, and other programs because they are U.S. citizens.

Even for legal immigrants, there is a five-year ban on accessing any kind of government assistance. Trump has tried to “propose” this to the U.S. but the law has been in place since 1996 when Bill Clinton signed the bill. Essentially, anyone claiming that undocumented immigrants are overloading the welfare system is not telling the full and true story.

The basic message of the film is that undocumented farm workers keep our food affordable, boost our economy, and contribute to the U.S. by paying taxes.

“Whether we want to admit it or not, our agricultural system is almost entirely dependent on migrant labor, but specifically undocumented migrant labor,” historian Cody Ferguson says in “So Close to America.” “Undocumented workers, they’re doing some of the hardest work that you can do in the United States. And, as a result of their hard work, we have this incredible, diverse system of agriculture that can provide practically anything we want to eat, whenever we want to eat it, for some of the cheapest prices in the world.”

According to the Department of Agriculture, around 50 percent of the work force making up the farmworkers in the U.S. are undocumented. According to a report in CBS News, certain aspects of the farm economy are more vulnerable to the uncertainty of our immigration policies.

CBS News reports that there is currently no visa program for year-round dairy farm workers, which relies heavily on undocumented and migrant labor. Furthermore, a study commissioned by the dairy industry found that if federal immigration policies removed 50 percent of the dairy farm laborers from the workforce, 3,500 dairy farms will be forced to close.

President Trump’s sustained and amplified attack on immigration, both illegal and legal, could have damaging repercussions for the U.S. economy. The immigration system is complex and difficult to maneuver and is in desperate need of an overhaul. Comprehensive immigration reform is something people support. Several prominent political and cultural leaders have spoken out about the need for comprehensive immigration reform and it’s time we start taking those steps.
