Would love to educate someone willing to learn.
We have a wall. In someone’s opinion it’s not working so let’s build more wall. Doing the same thing expecting a different result! You get the idea.
More wall will deter and stop some of the elderly, young, and weak that are just looking for a better life. The “riff raff” that some have called them. It will do very little to stop the real hard core bad guys that are trying to get in. The wall to them is just an obstacle that they will find a way around.
DRUGS: Most of the illegal drugs that enter our country enter through legal entry points. Drug money goes back the same way. So the wall will have little impact regarding this problem and these drugs will continue to enter our country and continue to kill thousands of Americans each year.
Americans being murdered: The mast majority of people killed/murdered in the US each year are killed by US citizens. The majority of the mass killings in this country are committed by US citizens. The wall will do nothing to stop this.
We are at a 45 year low for illegals entering this country, but now it’s a national emergency. The billions of tax payer dollars that will be used will be taken from already needed funded projects, which will have a negative impact on those communities.
The civil actions to come will cost tax payers millions of dollars. Think about the benefit all this money could have if put to other needed projects, but it’s going to be just pissed away.
What’s needed to happen, at a greatly reduced cost: Put more feet on the ground. Give them better/more technology. More judges and ways to make our justice system more effective and fluid dealing with illegals. Better state/federal laws with STIFFER penalties specific for illegals that commit crimes in our country. This will be more of a deterrent than the wall to the hard core bad guys.
BTY What happened to the Mexican government funding the wall?
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your response however you have not provided any facts or a solution that would render a wall ineffective. I thought perhaps you would reference some special technology that I never heard of. What you have provided is anecdotal and not an alternative which is what I was hoping to hear. Anyways, thanks for trying.
The walls we have DO work but I agree they are not 100%. They are only one part of the solution which would require more feet on the ground, tech and other investments. The walls if built correctly however are a great deterrent which will significantly reduce illegals freely walking into the US. We have miles of open borders and it is ridiculous to believe we can monitor them without some infrastructure. A wall would make people think twice. Drugs, human trafficking, child prostitution, etc are all part of the process. A wall will help reduce this, it will not eliminate it though. Criminals are resilient and resourceful but you have to start somewhere.
This is the United States of America, we have the right to protect our citizens, our borders and our rights. We have the right to lock our doors at night although a criminal may never walk through. No one has the right to take this away from us. If you have other ideas or solutions lets hear them until then I am all for building the tallest, longest and widest wall ideally electrified with barb wire.
