You know I keep having this visual in my mind like some sci-fi movie where future archaeologist are standing by the ruins of trumps wall and trying to explain it's purpose and significance. Just like today we talk about the significance of the great wall of china or hadrian's wall.

It will become a world heritage UNESCO landmark like the pyramids or the great wall of China. Hadrian's wall -- the Berlin wall -- the Isreali wall (cuz yeah, that's working)....all of those actual walls....

Nice! I like how you took one line out of my post. Excellent (although infantile) tactic.
The person to whom I responded made the unsubstantiated and egregious, based upon the facts, assertion that illegals were coming across the border and murdering our citizens. As you will note, I cited facts saying this was entirely untrue and made the comparison about how dangerous it is to place unsubstantiated blame on one group for societal problems. Shame on you.

It's because it's a giant waste of money.
As others have pointed out, most illegals come in legally and then overstay their welcome. Most drugs come in via boat or plane. And then there's the tunnels. If anyone's coming in via the actual border it's the people we actually want. Those that are willing to work hard and aren't criminals.
Plus, Mexico has it's own wall on their southern border. It doesn't work.
