Market impact of closing one of our borders

Before the monitor hits the F9 key...
I believe this deserves an discussion.
Agriculture is dependent on sales, exports.
Mexico is a good customer for our products.
The talk that I am getting is closing the border,
Sealing it.
Have we ever sealed our borders with our land
Locked neighbors ?

Today, agriculture is hurting ...many crop budgets
Are not very profitable, if at all. Farm credit tighter,
And we are hearing of bankruptcy...fed reserve
Data saying, many notes are overdue.

Can we afford cutting off a neighbor to sales ?

A projection I saw today....I can't say how bad
It makes the numbers look. Not only sales,
But item shortages...and having to source
Elsewhere, with significant higher cost.


Sorry...I view this an economic issue not political.

If your neighbor`s neighbor allows his cattle to graze in your neighbor`s cornfield.  And then your neighbor chases the cattle into your cornfield, is he still a good neighbor?

Take this question to congress. They are the ones who decided our neighbor were eligable to graze in taxpayer cornfields ......

Ba...this is about money...the markets...sales.

Grow up

Using your example...how many bushels of grain
Will not disappear...how much will that excess
Lower the market
What about exports of hogs, poultry ?

Your bound and determined to make a political
Issue out of it.

Some of us make our living with agriculture...not
Politics.

el - if you honestly believe politics can be separated from the economics of this

there are a couple bridge salesmen looking for you. 

The cannabis salesman travels with them wherever they go.

Then,  fast  track  the  H 2 O  worker  Visa,  darn  it , I  mean  H   2  A,   this  is  getting  so  complicated,  -  ?

 

Maybe  the  folks  owning  a  100  cows  of  their  own,   and  doing  their   '' own ''  chores  each  day  was  the  '' secret  sauce ''  recipe  -  suppose,  ?

 

Of  course,  there  would  be   no  E Q U I P  $$$$   to   administrate ,  G ,  what  was  I  thinking  ?

Well that says it all. We look to government for all answers and claim their actions have no effect.
Why ??
