What about the other reasons for a wall?
Essentially the wall is just another hurdle.
Drugs can be routed through Canada or via boat. If the goal is stop illegal immigration due to crime we might consider building a wall around the whole country! Gov. & business want illegal aliens
I think you are oversimplifying the drug problem. Canada and by boat is not that easy or viable. Again, illegal immigration is a red herring. I mentioned it in my comment.
Brad: I agree about the wall. IMO, entering this country illegally must be made into an endeavor requiring the best plan with perfect execution, but without assurances that it will get you in. It will take more than a wall, but that's a start.
Hxprof, slowing it down is a worthwhile endeavor. It is not only the illegal aliens, it is drugs, and the cartel doing billions of $ of criminal products here, and the Terrorists. 3 for the price of 1 wall. :)
Yep, the terrorists are by far my focus. All it will take is a few clowns willing to die for Allah to transport an exceedingly radioactive dirty bomb across our southern border and BOOM - there goes a city. Not a matter of if, but when.
Hxprof, I agree, who would have thought that a mere 19 terrorists could successfully attack the US. So, it is possible for them to do other unthought of ways to attack. Those agst the wall for immigration reasons, are making it easier for terrorists
