You're right to point out that this has a ways to go yet.



The wall is a physical barrier that would not be very easy to get over or around, so like a locked door it keeps out 99% of the people thinking about coming here, or going through the door. The other 1% will break the door to get in...


The wall will make it less convenient for migrant farm workers, which love them or hate them, keep our agricultural industry alive. Absent them, farms will fail and the USA becomes dependent on other countries for food. The pentagon has repeatedly said this is a National Security issue.

The wall does nothing to stop the drug trade
AIR
...I can hack together a UAV with sufficient lifting power to zip across the border and drop a reasonably profitable package...The cartels can build insanely advanced UAVs capable of dropping a package in the back of a moving Pick-up truck. Spending millions is like pennies to their profit margin.

WATER


According to US Foreign Military Studies Office data, 80% of drugs smuggled into the US in 2012 came via maritime routes
— and 30% of the drugs that came to the US by sea were carried on narco subs




So building a wall just keeps those without sophistication or money from crossing...Migrant Workers for our farms.

Alabama and Georgia tried to crack down on Migrant workers a few years ago and then quickly back-tracked as their agricultural industry began to fail and crops rotted in the fields.

The Wall is a DUMB idea...it does nothing to make Americans safer or stop the drug flow...If it worked at all, it would only damage our farming industry.

The money saved once the illegals are cleared out will more than pay for the wall.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!

Ya..that is called human trafficking..you for that? Migrant farm workers are a very fragile group that coming here have zero protection. Lets give them work visas that cost a lot less than a coyote, let them come here for X number of months to work the farms then go home...next season, rinse and repeat. Farms will not fail...workers can still come here but actually be legal and pay taxes, not be invisible, not be a group that anyone can take advantage of.

The 12 to 20 million illegals here are not immigrant farm workers...come and work then go home...don't stress our schools services etc...

I'm actually in the UAV business and it is not as easy a thing to do as you think. It is not just the wall alone, my friend.

SPECTACULAR idea...Now tell the GOP who has refused any immigration reform for a decade plus now because it is bad politics to grant visa's to brown people.

I am all for correcting the Migrant Farm Worker visa program...which costs hundreds of dollars and takes 6-8 months PER Worker...

Tell the GOP to get it done...Stop Migrant Workers before that correction and US Farms fail and all our food gets imported from Abroad.

Liar in Chief would delay social security checks to give the Mexicans a beautiful wall.

Seems the Dems didn't do it either...maybe the wall will force them both to take action in this area and fix it.

Legalize growing and use of pot grown by American farmers. Tax it's sale and use that money to build the wall. No pot from outside sources.

No. We need the Wall. Because the Wall will make it harder for illegal drugs to enter the US, and will thus raise "the prices" of all illegal drugs.

The high price of the drugs will then make the Mexican drug dealers richer, putting more profit into their pockets, and creating a greater incentive for more Mexicans to enter the drug trafficking trade.

This will cause a boom in the illegal drug industry, creating more crime, more killings, and so more work for the Police and the entire Health care industry.

Then the "snowball effect" will result, in lifting the entire economy of the USA, from all the other goods and services that come into play as the Security and Health Care sectors begin to demand more resources to handle all the new workload they get as a consequence of all the increase in illegal drug activity. More computers will be sold to hospitals, to handle the increase in patients, more police cars, more cell phones, more drones, more donuts and coffee, more pharmaceuticals...everything will go up.

Crime pays.

But, before it pays, you have to create an environment where it is very profitable for the criminal to start the process going.


That's the Wall. It's a "Catalyst".

It creates the necessary competition. Who can get their product to jump the Wall?

Whoever can figure out the puzzle, will see the biggest profit in the history of the drug trade enter their pockets.

The race is on, to deliver more drugs.
