    seems likely a wall would at least slow them down

    And by a wall I mean a road with a fence.
    With infrared cameras and microphones buried in the ground.
    And drones, drones are getting cheaper and cheaper.
    We could probably do a quick cheap drone wall right now, with little electric quad copters like my idiot neighbor flies up and down the block.
    Here's one for $1500 with 31 minutes of flight time for a 90 minute charge;

    You could have clouds of those things with tasers and pepper ball guns and silly string. Hook it all up to computers and call it SkyNet.

    It's more about the infrastructure.
    We need a road, from sea to shining sea. With a fence and sensors and cameras and drones and a service tunnel with conduits and pipes. Big wires, huge, the best wires.
    Solar panels and wind turbines and big battery banks in bunkers to charge the drones with.
    People wearing hard hats and zooming around on golf carts.
    As close to the border as possible.
    Water pipes, gas pipes, Petroleum product pipes, we built a pipeline across Alaska.
    Small towns will spring up to support the workers, sun farmers, moisture farmers, the shade from the ever growing solar panel fields will shade the soil and collect dew in the morning, new micro climates will emerge.
    We built the Hoover Dam,

    which would or would pave a standard highway 16 feet wide, from San Francisco to New York City.
    Let's just build a long skinny Hoover Dam on our Southern Border.

    I don't like watching videos of endless streams of people crossing the border illegally. I'm willing to spend some Dollars to fix that.

    I say build a wall and on the southern side of the wall, dig a trench and fill it with water.



    Then all you would need are cameras and sensors placed at regular intervals with their views overlapping and we'd be golden.

    Moreover I would rather spend the dollars building a wall, and enforcing our laws than the care & feeding of illegal immigrants which has a higher cost than a wall plus enforcement as studies on the subject have shown. You pay for one or the other, if people want to come to America let them do it legally through the process. The process is antiquated & needs to be fixed but, that is a different discussion altogether.

    I'm not entrenched on the topic...and the caravan has crystalized my concern. Something has to be done to interdict. I'd like to see a harder look at all the alternatives.

    How about hiring the 7000 caravan people to build the wall. 14 locations - 500 person labour camps given the task of outperforming each other for bonuses. Each group responsible for a set amount of miles. Food, water and tents for 4-6 months of work under military guidance. Plus fast track immigration when completed and $1000 - $4000 cash upon completion depending on evaluation.
    Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.
