135 billion is more than the entire annual budget of the UK's National Health Service.
I know smaller nations, only a 6th the population in the UK, but just giving perspective of how much money that actually is.

We live on an island, Trumps wall is far different, it won't work logistically, so as to support for the US defending its border, there has to be a more viable plan than a few thousand km fences, which it what it will amount to.
Don't be picturing Escape from New York type scenarios, it will be a steel school fence in most places, that's if it ever materializes.

Has anyone ever heard of a ladder?
I think the wall is silly.
If you want to stop illegal immigration, fine people in the country illegally say $500 per day that they are here.
Also fine employers $10,000 per illegal employee.
Pretty sure that would end illegal immigration. But then, the crops wouldn't get harvested here in CA

No, it absolutely will not! Something Fox doesn't talk about, is the fact most illegals, in the United States, did not cross the border in Mexico.
Where did they cross it at then ?
Two-thirds of those who joined the undocumented population did so by entering with a valid visa and then overstaying their period of admission, the center repored.
