Land mines. Might be the cheapest solution. Maybe some robotic machine guns as well.

Very cheap with $0 cost for long-term maintenance costs.

And how about "trapdoor spider"-bot mines that follow the illegal if the illegal manages to miss them.

Can you imagine that face on TV as the illegal reaches the finishing line, only to hear the mine go 'beep, BEEP' right behind their ankle ?. Oops

Or bot mosquitoes that inject '___' and the illegal takes a random walk through the mine field all day long - LOL.

The US is hamstrung by it's own laws. We can't use the US military. We need help.

Call Israel, the IDF has proven they know how to deal with border issues.

I think this is a great idea.
I know people who would love to have a paying job guarding our borders.

Nothing wrong with your suggestion, but I think your numbers are way off. So far off that no, you would not save any money and in fact it would cost far more.

4 full shifts, working rotating shifts and figuring you need at least twelve people per mile at all times, you get up to far more people than you are calculating. Then add on supervisory staff, vehicles, equipment, training and the rise in the costs of bureaucracy overseeing it, you might be looking at thirty billion per year if you could hold it to that.

Remember wages include far more than just the salary. Unfunded items like retirement, medical, dental, disability and on and on and on and you start to see what I mean.

Then you have the issue of finding that many people qualified to work in law enforcement with most area's struggling already to keep cops on the streets. You can't just hire someone and throw them out there head to head with drug cartel's and human traffickers.

In the end, the wall will be much cheaper.

It has been well established that Mexicans are good with a shovel.
They will go right under it.
I'd be surprised if they don't already have miles of tunnels.

I agree. There are undoubtedly miles of tunnels we haven't found yet. Maybe hundreds of them.

We can't use the military because of Posse Comitatus but we definitely are allowed to have military bases on US soil. There's no reason we can't declare the entire US border to be a military base. The federal government already owns the land. We can then conduct whatever operations that are needed without political interference. I can't see any flaws with this approach to the problem.
