German Chancellor Tells Mexico that Building Walls 'Will Not ...
- Building walls will not solve the problem of illegal immigration, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on a visit to Mexico, despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to do exactly that.
“Obviously the main reason for people leaving must be addressed on site first, which means that putting up walls and cutting oneself off will not solve the problem,” Merkel said during a panel in Mexico city, BBC reports.
Merkel, who grew up in communist East Germany when her own country was divided by a wall that was totemic of the Cold War, spoke about the history of immigration. Raising living standards and increasing local opportunities can curb migration, Merkel suggested.
