To start, Mexico already has all the wall it needs, according to Maki Ortiz, the mayor of Reynosa, one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico, across the Rio Grande from McAllen, Texas.
"It's called jobs, education," Ortiz told VICE News in an interview at her office Thursday. "We don't want any Mexicans to go out of the country. That's why in this city we created twenty thousand jobs. That is our wall."
McAllen, Texas, Mayor Jim Darling also doesn't think the wall is necessary.
