The other issue that no one considers is sheer logistics. It simply isn't possible to build. There are homes and privately owned property all along this area. Building a wall isn't a problem but upkeep over time will cost way more than the initial construction. Ridiculous notion all the way around. No one will ever prevent people from doing what they wish; they will always find a way.

Immigrants will simply build a large drone (imported from China), strap on a patio chair and fly over the wall. Flight time: about 30 seconds. Or less.

Drones fly on radio frequency control. The wall will contain blocking devices that will make those drones crash and burn ...adios amigos.

So if you're suggesting that the wall can't be built I'd say that's a bit weak.....un the US has built some pretty complicated things that are clearly much more difficult than a wall.....or are you suggesting it can't be build because of politics?

Flooding presents a problem in several places already with the fence. With a wall, just grab an inflatable swan, wait a couple extra minutes, and float on over. For an extra bit of thrill, wait at one of the areas where it will collapse.

We can’t do what the Chinese did way way back? BS... that wasn’t exactly level terrain they built that damn thing on...

(I said way way back so a certain anal retentive troll doesn’t challenge my timing as being fifteen minutes off)

I'll agree with what you are saying. It can physically be built with the purchase of private property, relocating families, etc. Post construction who is going to maintain it? Who will provide funding of material for maintenance and personel to perform said maintenance. From an engineering standpoint this alone would be a logistical nightmare....and for what? It isn't going to keep anyone out.

Case in point, has the war on drugs kept anyone from doing drugs? No. What it did do is make more money for the cartels all while imprisoning the users and lowering the prices on drugs and making them more readily available.

Not arguing that point. Physically can it be built? Yes. Will it last as long as the Great Wall? Absolutely not.

If the wall is built, which I highly doubt that it will be, this will only leave financial and engineering problems for future generations to maintain.

Did no one happen to see the comment I also made of "building a wall isn't a problem" on the same post or did everyone only read one sentence?

I guess I’m not sure what your point is. Some of the designs I’ve seen look like they are virtually maintenance free, but even if some maintenance is required I don’t get not building something that’s important just because it requires work to keep it intact. Isn’t that what we already do to maintain our freedom? And I’m not equating the wall with keeping our freedom, but am equating the concept.
