In general I am for some type of barrier with technology to supplement. I agree it is a deterrent, and will stop some people from coming across.

But my point in the above post, is that we should stop comparing it to the wall in Israel, both from a funding and functionality standpoint. The wall in Israel saves much more lives than anything we build on our border, that is why we provide funds for it so easily. And the wall in Israel will always be a much better deterrent because of the consequences of trying to get past it.
The whole point of the wall is to slow illegal immigration on the Southern border to a trickle, it creates a choke point. It won't stop everyone but it will slow things down by making it harder to cross.
