If they can’t get here in the first place, these companies wouldn’t be able to hire them, no?



Yeah in an ideal world that'd be nice. Too bad that hasn't been working has it? Oh yeah how are you going to stop people from sneaking into a country with two gigantic coast lines? Both of which are shared by the country from which you are trying to keep people from coming from.

There's endless ways to enter America apart from the southern border.

You can line the southern border with turrets and land mines but as long as there's incentive for illegal immigrants to enter and stay in America they'll find a way.

I mean people manage to cross the Korean demilitarized zone for # sake. That's like 4km of death with heavily armed fortifications on both sides.


present some numbers of how many successfully cross the DMZ and we can have a nice discussion on that.

you thinking locking your doors is going to stop someone from getting in if they really want to? really?


No, I don't. But it will stop a good portion of the ones that aren't as determined. Hell, it might make them think about finding a way to enter the legal way.

Is that much straw itchy?

ETA: and of course I have to ask, why do you lock your door? You know if someone really wanted in, they would get in.

No, but it is much safer than living with the door wide open and all the lights on, with a sign out front that says "Free Stuff, come on in."

Well I lock my doors, then I have an alarm, then I have guns, and a Dog, and cops, and neighbors with guns... At the end of the day it keeps out the 99.9%, so I'll live with the chance the .001% wants in that badly. As to the wall, if it kept out 50% we would see 10s of billions per year savings....

I know you won't believe me but we don't. I grew up in a huge family and we never locked our door.. I still don't. lol

I do have a pit bull, tho. he's old and cranky and prefers being under a blanket.

instead of a wall, i'd rather see the southern border lined with solar panels or wind turbines. we could build roads and maintenance buildings and offices all along the border. we'd have 24 hour surveillance and a boost to our electricity supply. it would create jobs. not just boarder patrol but electricians, welders, machinists, office personnel, building maintenance, road maintenance, technicians would be hired to maintain the equipment.

most of the money to support the effort could come from the sale of electricity.

just my 2 pesos

The mindset of some of these people is that if we can't knock it down to zero, then it isn't worth the effort. Of course, this type of thinking is nonsense. We have hundred of thousands coming across annually. If we can reduce it even by half it would make a wall worth it in cost savings alone.

Well, prisons shouldn't have walls since they aren't effective.

Just use drones.

amirite?

I don't hate that idea at all. It has merit. But amazingly, it's not the same as, "do nothing". because that hasn't been working.

You should send Trump an e-mail with your proposal. Serious.

Cool, thanks for bringing something of substance to make your point.

Here:
50,000 a month

And I believe the numbers in your link was 1000 a year. Are you sure this is the stance you want to take here?

the only issue I could see with that is how long till folks across the border realize the sheer amount of precious metals that could be looted with some coordinated distractions.

Other than that I love the idea.
