Building a wall on the Mexican Border is stupid, let's build a MOAT!

Howdy again Above Top Secretions!,
I hear alot of talk about building a wall to stem illegal immigration, drugs and everything else streaming through the southern border of the United States unabated.

I think this is an ill conceived plan.
- first, the wall can be easily defeated with a ladder or tunnel underneath.
- Second, the cost of construction, patrolling, and upkeep would be astronomical.
- third, its not a moat.

A moat, well stocked with piranha and crocodiles, however solves many of these problems
- tunneling underneath would probably get flooded by the moat
- a moat is really just a ditch, so no materials are needed, just bulldozers and backhoes
- could have drone boats patrol the moat at minimal cost.
- you could use the excess piranha as a food source.

What say ye ?
Could this work?
Moat Better than a wall?

Except then someone will say but we have to cross, so lets build draw bridges. That way we can still import drugs and slave workers and ship arms south.

A moat would not work because (1) They already traverse the Rio Grande every day even though the current sweeps away and drowns many right in front of their families and they consider it worth the risk to escape the Mexican drug cartels and economic depression and (2) the piranhas and gators would be on the grill as soon as they hit the shore, and I'd be happy to join in such a tasty feast!

And stock it with bull sharks,sea snakes,and candiru`s.Nah won`t work,a wall/fence with electronic survellience like area 51 would keep a lot out,but the border is bigger than most people really understand.We have to slow the flood down,too many dangerous people joining folks looking for a job and taxpayer handouts to keep on like we are.Besides all these measures we need a immigration policy like New Zealands to get a handle on things
