Esquire magazine sent their liberal journalist Jay Fielden to Texas to drive along the border and talk to the locals he met. The goal was to talk to real and honest people living there and find out if they supported the wall or if it was just a political stunt. He went on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to report what he witnessed and wrote about.
It turns out that pretty much everyone he met along the border supported the wall and wanted it to be made. Fielden said it made no difference about their race, political alignment, or income. They are ready for the construction to begin.
He also noted that those who supported the wall the most were first generation legal immigrants who felt that others should have to go through the same process they went through. As Fielden puts it, illegal immigrants need to get in line.&
