the mexican government does not like the wall as it lets them
A) get remittances
B) allows surplus labor to leave the country and not cause unrest.

Without illegal immigration the mexican government would collapse due to unrest.
They know this and hence why they have pledged to tie up US courts with funds.

Illegal immigration allows a corrupt narco state to continue to exist.

If a major issue is Visas then we know what will happen, visa's will be cut. illegals will be to blame for abusing that. When a system is abused it becomes more regulated, its how it is.

Seasonal worker visas can be cut. MegaCorp farms can pay livable wages which will allow family farms to compete with them on a level playing field.
The land can also be used for crops that use mechanized methods instead of labor intensive luxury fruits and veggies.

Every nation needs to secure its borders, some more than others. Whether it is a physical wall, or an electronic wall, or some other device is arbitrary. Whatever works best, is cost efficient, etc. Lots of criteria to be used in determining what the best solution is. But it is safe to say in the end we do need to protect our borders, one way or another.

One thing I always wanted to do was hire our homeless veterans and pay them to do what they volunteered to do in the first place - defend our nation. Build small settlements of homes around a watch post that is connected to whatever the detection system is comprised of. Hire our homeless veterans and let them live in the housing and man the watch post 24/7. When there is an alert issued all the personnel from that post respond. Until then the post is manned by rotating watches, something our veterans are very familiar with. Shift work, in layman's terms.

This would get our veterans off the streets, get them gainful employment, let them serve their country, and man the wall with vigilant patriots who put our nation above all else. Any structure can eventually be overcome. But a physical presence is a different story.

Raytheon has a wall that's made out of the same technology that they use for Active Denial. It can not only burn the crap out of you if you try to cross it, it detects motion near the wall.

Hmm. If they use that technology, that sounds like an opportunity for me to make some money by selling those foil fire-resistant suits on the other side of the border.

Soon my brothers and sisters we shall feed!



It sounded like something pulled straight from a grisly scene in Terminator: an unstoppable military robot that powered itself by devouring everything in its path - including trees, grass and even, according to reports, dead bodies.

But after a string of headlines that labelled the machine a "corpse eater" and "creepy", the robot's creators have gone on a PR offensive to extinguish the rumor that their invention will feed on human or animal flesh.

The machine's inventors say that the Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot – known as Eatr for short – does indeed power its "biomass engine" by digesting organic material, but that it is not intended to chomp its way through battlefields of fallen soldiers.

"We completely understand the public's concern about futuristic robots feeding on the human population, but that is not our mission," said Harry Schoell, the chief executive of Cyclone Power Technologies, one of the companies behind the machine.

"We are focused on demonstrating that our engines can create usable, green power from plentiful, renewable plant matter. The commercial applications alone for this earth-friendly energy solution are enormous."

General

Fruit picking robots, driverless tractor / sprayer, and sheep shearing robots are designed to replace human labor. In most cases, a lot of factors have to be considered (e.g., the size and color of the fruit to be picked) before the commencement of a task. Robots can be used for other horticultural tasks such as pruning, weeding, spraying and monitoring. Robots can also be used in livestock applications (livestock robotics) such as automatic milking, washing and castrating. Robots like these have many benefits for the agricultural industry, including a higher quality of fresh produce, lower production costs, and a smaller need for manual labor.[4] They can also be used to automate manual tasks, such as weed or bracken spraying, where the use of tractors and other manned vehicles is too dangerous for the operators.

Are you guys seriously considering that in the next 50 years menial labor as a whole could not be effectively replaced by robots?

Actually if you do not think that is possible I have got some great land and yes it is in the Everglades but.....

At the frequency they use, you'll still burn with that on.

I think the idea of a brick and mortar wall is that someone else can't just turn off the power someday.

Also not vulnerable to natural disasters, EMP's, Carrington type Events.
