Mexico is the second deadliest country in the world after Syria.
I don't doubt it. I know a few people from the southern Texas border. I know them because they drove trucks when I did. They drove trucks because it's
too dangerous for them to go home.
Yes, it is.
I don't want a wall. It's too sour on the eyes.
You've seen the plans already? I wasn't aware the plans had been finalized yet.
No one even knows what the wall will look like yet. So how can you complain about how it looks? Most of that southern border isn't exactly world-class
scenery in the first place. It's scrub brush, dry ground, and a lot of cacti.
I don't want a wall. It disturbs nature.
Probably, but then again there's just not a lot of nature happening around most of it.
I don't want a wall. It's ancient technology.
What, you want Star Trek force fields?
Walls may be ancient technology, but so are wheels. Some things just work.
I don't want a wall. It's too imposing.
You have walls in your house, don't you? Aren't they imposing too?
I don't want a wall. It's too segregating.
That's the whole point.
You forgot the claim that it won't work... someone else brought that up for you though. To that, I say it will indeed work simply by forcing illegal
immigrants to use planes or boats. Tunnels are not an issue, as ground-penetrating radar is pretty inexpensive now and would detect a tunnel before
anyone could finish digging it... and since the wall is now going to be solar-powered, that radar, along with a data network to report any digging to
authorities, is energy neutral. We have a Coast Guard to watch for boats, and the realistic area of water for circumventing the wall is a small
fraction of the area the wall will close off. Planes are much more expensive, and require landing strips... plus they can be picked up by conventional
In short, none of the 'won't work' arguments hold an ounce of water. Only those completely ignorant of technology would even advance them.
