Esquire journalist says Trump is right about the wall. Journalist goes to southern border, asks people if they want the wall, and they say yes-whether they were Hispanic, Anglo, Democrat, Republican, or uncommitted, all agree a wall is needed. Hispanics less sympathetic toward illegal immigrants than whites. June-July 2016 issue. Esquire Ed. in Chief Jay Fielden on MSNBC's Morning Joe

"Esquire magazine’s editor-in-chief Jay Fielden was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Show to discuss what the residents of the Southern border said what they wanted.

Joe Scarborough:

This is pretty shocking stuff. So, you send a liberal journalist down there. He comes back saying, ‘Trump is right. They need to build a wall.’

Jay Fielden:

That’s right. So we said, you got to go down there with no pre-conceived notions. Right? Just an empty notebook. Go to my former home state and walk the border, drive the border, 800 miles and talk to whoever you see. And let them tell us what they think about what’s really going on, whether we need a wall, in fact. Instead of hearing it from the debate stage, let’s hear it from the people who deal with it everyday.

Joe Scarborough:

Yeah and the people say build the wall.

Jay Fielden:

They said, ‘Build the wall.’ They said two things, whether they were Hispanic, Anglo, Democrat, Republican, uncommitted, clueless, whatever; they said we want a wall and yet we want it to be married with some compassion toward the people that we’re trying to keep from jumping over the border.”

 Joe Scarborough:

Here’s another surprising thing from the article is that he said that Hispanics were less sympathetic towards illegal immigrants than whites.”

Jay Fielden:

“So, I think there’s a lot of interesting things there. But one thing I think is that most of those Hispanics are first-generation and they see it as unfair. That they came over here the legal way, became citizens and now they're having to compete for jobs with those who are coming across the border on a daily basis. Right? So, I think they feel as one guy says, ‘Let them get in line.’ Right?”"
