    Probably to keep Americans out.

    Since our own government is making our nation a third-world country, Mexico doesn't want illegal immigrants from the USA.

    Our own Democrooks and Republicrooks have been looting our economy for decades, and have just about completely wrecked our economy. The fatcats get fatter, and the middle class and poor get poorer as a result.

    We need to foreclose on the politicians of both parties and evict them from office in the next elections, and see how they like it when it happens to them.

    That's because they want to ensure that the only people who can sneak across our border are Mexicans, and not Central Americans. The Mexicans that are here illegally have to compete with the incoming Central Americans for entitlement money, and remissions home.

    They know that walls and fences do work. Just lookat how the violence dropped in Israel once they put up a fence with the palestinians.

    Source(s): EDIT: A wall being built to prevent river flooding? Then why did a mexican official admit that it would slow down "migrants", and the Vice President of Guatemala submitted a protest to Mexico? All of this on a Latino news site? http://www.hispanictips.com/2010/09/20/a-wall-is-b...

    http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=52838

    it turns out that the wall is for FLOOD control...so guess what...MORE unfounded lies immediately jumped on by the right but it's NOT true

    "There will be no wall between Chiapas and Guatemala, are protective levees in Suchiate, say authorities.

    Chiapas authorities ruled that the intention is to build a border fence on the border with Guatemala and clarified that the plan of the state and federal government is to build levees on the banks of the River Suchiate. Discharged versions to start this week on the intention of building a dividing wall between Chiapas and Guatemala were clarified by the secretary of the Southern Border, Andrea Hernandez Fitzner.

    The state official ruled that the work to be built and will feature a thousand two hundred meters long, slow look indocumetandos transit of migrants. Elaborating on the work, said the purpose of the levees along the banks of Suchiate, which is a natural border between Mexico and Guatemala to avoid overflows like those already affected tens of families in this rainy season."

    Mexican Governor says the wall is for flood control

    "Tuxtla Gutierrez Chiapas .- The government denied that the border with Guatemala is intended to build a wall to prevent migration and that the intention is to build dikes to prevent flooding.

    The secretary for the Southern Border Development and Liaison for International Cooperation, Andrea Hernandez Fitzner, denied that it intends to put a barrier to contain the migratory flow, which in his opinion is high, mainly in Central and South America.

    He clarified that the purpose of the federal and Chiapas is the construction of two dikes with a total of one thousand 200 meters long on the banks of the River Suchiate international boundary between Mexico and Guatemala, to prevent overflow and flooding."

    Because they don't want any illegals from other country making it here to the US and sending their illegal earnings back to their home country instead of to Mexico. It is one of the main sources of revenue for the Mexican economy.

  • To keep the Central Americans out. But we are racist xenophobes, oh the hypocrisy.

    To curtail illegal immigration into Mexico and encourage it for the US.
