Will Halliburton get te build and maintainance contract? Maybe there is a purpose for the wall, to give 'em someting useless to build and make a
pile of bank from. Where I am there is a section of steel wall about 20' high for about 2 miles on either side of the border crossing. That went
up a couple years ago. After the steel wall ends, the 4 strand barbwire cattle fence begins.
In my area there's already 5 border patrol vehicles for every civilian vehicle rolling around at night, and to travel from one part of the state to
another you have to go through checkpoints and show ID, kinda like a secondary border crossing. They've actually built the highway checkpoint about
30 miles north of the border. Funny though, i never see any illegals at the checkpoints, only border patrol giving normal folk a hard time. It
seems the primary purpose of the checkpoints are to get people to carry their ID if they want access to areas north. The illegals and smugglers know
where the checkpoints are and when they are manned (yes, during peak traffic hours they're manned, late nights and midday there's oftentimes nobody
there) and they just take one of 10,000 back roads that law abiding folks would be inconvenienced by or go at night after someone drives up the road
to see if it's clear.
