 For human rights organization Amnesty International, Trump's proposed border wall - which even some members of the Border Patrol fail to see as an effective barrier - will only enrich criminal organizations involved in extorting money from immigrants on the Mexican side.

average American it may be nuclear proliferation, the bombastic President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, maybe Persian rugs, but not much else. Certainly seven

the Baha'i religion haven't made it onto our radars.
