|Re: A compromise would be to build sections of the wall in critical areas, monito...|
I was watching something on National Geo a few weeks back about the
southern border. Wasn't anything political,,,,but is showed how extreme
the terrain is in some of the stretches of the border. I'm talking places where
a mountain goat couldn't walk,,,for many many miles.
I don't care if you had 100 bil to spend, there's no way you'd get a barrier built
to cover every single mile.
I think the best solution is to put a barrier up in places where most cross
and then use technology & drones to patrol the rest,,and eliminate catch & release.
I was thinking about this earlier this afternoon. The nearest town I live by
has a population of 2200.
DHS said they apprehended 60,000 last month.
So let's say just 5000 make it into the US,,,,, X 12= 60,0000
That's just over 27 new towns magically appearing,,every year.

A compromise would be to build sections of the wall in critical areas, monitor the rest of it. That would eat up the 5.7 billion Mr T wanted, he could claim victory and shut him up. Most anything you read says 5.7 would not build the full wall, we are talking 25 billion or so.
