Luis Videgray Caso, PhD, Secretary of Finance and Public Credit of Mexico, in a Mar. 3, 2016 article, "Mexico Won't Pay for Trump's Wall, Treasury Secretary Says," available at, stated:

“To build a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea that is based on ignorance that has no basis in the reality of North American integration… What both countries need is better border infrastructure. Better bridges, more customs booths, more lanes.”
