Kids Slam Trump's Wall With the Help of a Boring Toy

What might kids think of Trump's wall? A new video for Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project gives them a wall as a toy, and we find out.

In a pro bono stunt by David & Goliath, a bunch of kids are invited into a room and show an apparently exciting new toy. It's a grey wall made of construction bricks. The kids are underwhelmed and make all kinds of insightful points about walls. They don't do anything, they're "breaking the fun apart" and it would be much more cool to make a rocket ship.

Although it's obvious that the kids wouldn't be excited by a boring grey toy, it's the remarks they make that illustrate the point of the piece. Asked what a wall is for, one replies: "It's for keeping bad guys out of your place." Another shoots back: "How do you know who's a bad guy?"

At the end of the video, viewers are directed to Esperanza's website, where they can donate to the cause or sign a petition against the wall.
