I would think there is a fairly simplistic solution to this problem to at least get the ball rolling. If the border states bring suit against the
federal government for breach of contract and dereliction of duty and with-hold all federal income tax payments to generate working capital.
The border states could then build a nice little electrified fence, say 5000v @ 1amp, put in leaky coax or acoustic cable with some pod mounted laser
scanning and a barrier fence capacitive signature analysis system, plus bury some acoustic sensors deep, like 50 feet to pick up the tunnelers.
A fence system like this doesn't cost that much compared to keeping warm bodies on guard every 100 yards. You only need a reaction team every 10
miles or so because the sensory system on the fence warms of incoming personnel up to 100 yards away.
When I used to design these overseas, we followed the 3D's, Deter, Delay and in worse case Destroy and it worked out pretty well, there are at least
3000 terrorists you won't be able to ask about the system.
And after you take care of the Mexican border, you might want to look at putting a fence around Washington to "keep the evil contained."
These "virtual" fencing systems are a joke, the border states need something that will stop these wankers, preferably, dead in their tracks in no
uncertain terms. My apologies if I sound a little callous but I have seen far too much death and it really does make one a little jaded after a
Little joke - A guy on vacation from Texas and a politician from Washington were walking along the sand at Virginia Beach when the guy from Texas
found a bottle. He rubbed it and out popped a Genie. The Genie, annoyed from being woken barked at the two men, "Well now I'm awake, I'll give you
each one wish."
The politician said, "Wow, we've been having so many security problems with these damn citizens we need to secure Washington DC, Genie, build a wall
ten thousand feet high around Washington DC that can never be broken so we can be protected." The Genie waved his arms and up went the wall, you
could see it from the beach. The Genie looked at the guy from Texas and said, "And what is your wish?"
The guy from Texas laughed a little and said, "Can you fill that with oil, say a hundred feet from the top." The Genie waved his arms and it was
The guy from Texas looked at the politician and then at the Genie and said, "Damn, I missed one."
