"Not fullproof, as I said but it would help. I lived in El Paso and was stationed in Fort Bliss. What is completely silly is folks like you acting like walls do not work at all. Virtually all civilizations since 8000 BC used walls for defense and to protect we still use them today."
Never said walls don't work at all but I think I made the point that walls by themselves don't work, if we are going to have people close enough to every foot of the wall to immediately apprehend people then what's the point of the Wall? To build a wall and then add that much technology and that many people how much are we spending 100billion+?
"And yet areas with the walls on our present border"
Wait it's almost like democrats believe in strategic fencing and common sense border security who would have thought.
"In fact, people like you and your ilk have made me more conservative in the last few years, I don't like either party. My wife also feels this way and I have to wonder if others do as well. I think the left is having their Tea Party movement and lurched towards extremism and it will come back to haunt them once their common enemy Pres. Trump leaves as they will destroy each other just like the Tea Party did to the GOP. Enjoy the ride."
Soooooo if I get this correct the fact that the democrats might become extremist like the tea party has pushed you toward the party that is already extremist(according to you). If it haunts democrats so much that they take over the house and senate for 4 straight elections and win the presidency then democrats will be shaking in their boots.
"But he is right about walls working, but the cost my outweigh the results"
This is what it is all about strategic fencing where a bunch of immigrants cross, that makes sense stop the flow of people. A giant wall in the middle of a desert 10s of miles from the closest road or person is not good use of tax payer money. If we are going to spend 5.7 billion shouldn't we get something that is effective and isn't just a money trap indefinitely until we decided to stop maintaining it.
