What was the point of Donald Trump putting up a wall if Mexicans travel to and from US by plane everyday?

I believe Mexican citizens are still free to fly to and from US/Canada by plane with no restrictions, so why did he put up a wall at the expense of the Mexican government???

Seems kind of prejudiced towards Mexicans. 

Update:

Is there even a gate along that wall that will allow people to go through for employment purposes?

    To get on a plane you have to go through screening and must provide a visa. We know who they are, why they are here and where they are going. The wall is stop people from entering with no documentation and disappearing.

    A false premise. Person's who fly in have Money, Also have proper Visa's to enter: BUT tend to OVERSTAY their time here.

    Mexicans can and could travel across the border since the beginning. Most have Work Visa's.

    It is the OTHER Aliens for whom the Wall is meant to Deter.

    A thousand other Alien's illegally entering the country at ONE time, crossing the Post & Barbed wire fences is easy enough.

    All those people (some  DISEASED, some Criminals) looking for the FREE Medical Care, FREE Education, FREE Housing, and EASY crime targets once they make it in.

    I am surprised at how many RACISTS blame the Mexican People for Crime.

    Do you not find it strange, that None of the Homeless Drug Addicts, or Illegal Aliens seem to have the Covid-2019?  This according to reports from the Mass Media, controlled by the Democrats?

    Gates, are called "Ports of Entry" and are spaced along the border wal.

    San Ysidro, San Ysidro Pedestrian,

    Cross-border Terminal, Tijuana

    Otay Mesa

    And about 53 more.

    It has nothing to do with nationality. 

    Pelosi's wall on the California border was built NOT to keep out Mexicans. 

    Her wall and the entire border wall being built are to keep out illegal aliens. 

    The wall is there to slow cartel mules smuggling drugs and people.

    Also, illegals come in by boat or overstay their visa. The wall is not cost effective. When there is a will there is a way.

    You are incorrect 

    There are many restrictions. When you travel by plane you are require to have a visa and enter a

    Country legally through customs 

    So your question shows Trump is against illegal immigration not Mexicans

    People who fly to other countries do so legally. He only wants to keep criminals out.

    He's prejudiced against criminals.

    He only wants to keep the poor people out. The ones that are too poor to afford a plane ticket.
