doesn't that like violate several treaties we've signed with you guys? Oh well, you guys broke NAFTA, It's not a surprise to see you guys go and trash yet another treaty.
Eventually the US of A will alienate itself to such an extent, that you guys will literally have not a friend in the world. I think you guys need to take a reality pill, because it seems the majority of your population and politicians are quickly falling down the rabbit hole into some weird parrelel dimension where black is white and white is mango.

Of course I've hiked along the border. So it isn't really closely watched. Just makes it a slight bit harder for a bad person to go back and forth on both borders.
Mr Giuliano's patrols put sensors down along the border which send signals to a central command post in Blaine, generating a computerised voice alert announcing where there is movement and in what direction. Agents can then train one of 32 cameras on the area to determine whether a smuggler is making a crossing or a cow has gone astray.
The smugglers have equipped themselves with night-vision goggles and metal detectors in an attempt to locate the sensors under the cover of darkness. They also conduct surveillance operations watching the border patrols and testing their reaction times to the sensors, and intercepting radio messages with computerised scanners.
