Donald Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer has announced that the construction of a wall along the USA-Mexico border will be ‘seriously delayed’ due to a lack of available cheap Mexican labourers.
Speaking at a press briefing this morning, he added that using American workers would not be an option due to ‘wage expectations.’
He said: ‘Thanks for attending this briefing today. There will be no time for questions so please listen carefully and report these facts exactly as communicated.’
‘We regret to announce that the construction of a wall along the entire length of the border between the USA and Mexico will be delayed for a serious amount of time due to the lack of Mexican labourers who are willing to work on the project.’
‘We have calculated that using American workers will push the total construction costs beyond the entire federal budget for Trump’s presidency.’
‘Because of the wall’s design, we cannot guarantee that any Mexicans will be on the right side of the wall once it is finished.’
‘We cannot build it from the top down after all.’
To further complicate the issue, a legal battle is now underway to get a trampoline factory closed down in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juárez.
According to experts, potential illegal immigrants would be able to ‘easily clear a 500-foot wall’ using the facility.
However, the owners of Gonzales Trampolinas are adamant that they have a right to remain at the location where they have operated since 1968.
