Here's Your Border Control/Patrol Solution
We have record unemployment and housing forclosures galore...
In the past gov't has stepped in and created solutions with some, and I stress some
Most of the time, however, solutions come from the people... civilians.
As such, here is a solution for combined problems.
. Conduct a high profile campaign in the most destitute areas of the US.
In the campaign offer a JOB AND HOUSING to those who are willing to relocate to the CA, AZ, NM, TX, Borders.
. Using surplus self contained and properly equipped FEMA Trailers (See
Links Below) to be put on borderwatch. These trailers (God knows we have countless trailers sitting idle) properly equipped with off the shelf two way
communication, propane tanks, simple night vision equipment, and willing patriotic, unemployed, lightly armed, US citizens, could be placed within
site of each other along those states borders. As watchers. Details of rotating crews (families) can be hashed in details.
. Official National Guard command posts would be stationed further from the border and within assistance range of multiple border watching crews.
Logistics can be hashed in the details.
. Spacing of the self contained units should be dictated by line of site... Many units can be as far away as 1-2 miles or as close as a few thousand
feet. Logistics can be hashed in the details.
. With housing and decent base foods and filtered clean water provided by the rear command posts (FEDS) this would put people to work... Utilize
otherwise underutilized/idle resourses and be extremely cost effective, a moral booster AND put people that WANT to do it back to work AND be great
for getting a tan without much effort.
. AGAIN I'll STRESS the hashing of details could be grea fun for those willing to participate.
. Cost effective.
. Utilize existing resources.
. EXTREME moral booster.
. Puts people to work earning a modest wage while helping fulfill the patriotic spirit.
Unless we do something on the border... laws like those enacted in AZ will become more common. I hate the law they've enacted recently BUT they are
in dire straights and the FEDS are treating the border states' issues like a buzzing gnat.
I'm not going to spend ALL of my time doing footwork for the FEDS... Here's some links and info to start the project.
God knows sharing ~2000 mile border with Mexico would mean (the following are estimates):
2000 trailers spaced at 1 mile (5280') intervals
4000 night vision dodadds
2000-4000 jobs would be created
(figure the cumulative, recurring, ANNUAL (costs) pay rate on your own. Housing and base foods included)

A few years ago John described how one might try to optimize formaldehyde exposure in climate refugees:
* Build out of formaldehyde laced particle boards, resins and glues;
* Purchase great numbers and fill quickly before much formaldehyde can outgas;
* Fill with families with no other options;
* Bake in southern sun until done.

a FEMA Release posits that the trailers are suitable for other non-occupancy uses such as for office space, [color=gold]command posts, or
storage. We're sure you'll figure out your own use. Just know that prolonged exposure to formaldehyde is very deleterious to your health, and, that
a recent federal court decision (by US District Judge Kurt Engelhardt) ruled that government is not immune from lawsuits related to this issue.
Nonetheless, various brands of travel trailers/campers are being sold (both individually, and in bulk), including Gulfstream Cavalier, Coachmen
Cascade, R-Vision Trail-Sport, Monaco Holiday Rambler, Forest River, Recreation by Design, Fleetwood Spec and Merit, Pilgrim Spec, Crossroads Zinger,
Jayco and others.
There is much more to be hashed out on a project like this BUT it's something, I believe, everyone (especially unemployed people) can wrap their mind
around... Especially the costs being staggeringly reasonable considering the astronomical cost of the failed video presence; the failed wall building
Comments on what wouldn't work? And why? AND Do you really understand this proposed project?
