    Once upon a time, when China was the most powerful country in the world they build the great wall of China, to keep the Mongols out. Today, when the US become the most powerful country in the war, they are going to build the great wall of the United States, to keep the Mexicans out big_smile

    A piece of advice, building a wall like this cost a lot of time and money. Just look at the Chinese history, the great wall of China took 20 years to build, some workers died of exhaustion or work place accident (probably be less as a problem today, due to modern machinery, but still might happen) and almost bankrupted China.

    Republican speaking:
    If we could help Mexico become a first world nation, this would not be an issue. I really think all efforts should be made towards that goal. Whether it be economic aid, military aid or just technology.  We can do that. It will take a cultural shift in Mexico, where the "1%" really are in control.
    Plus, the plethora of Americans using cocaine, heroin and hash is disgraceful and needs to change.  That is causing a lot of deaths throughout Central America. 
    Not a fan of the wall for many reasons, especially from a PR perspective.  Looks petty. We can expand the border patrol and use technology.  But if we have impoverished nations on our border, this is what happens.  We need to change that.

    There is more than one reason to build the wall.
    1. Reduce the illegal drugs coming into the US from Mexico.
    2. Reduce the number of criminals (gangs) coming into US from Mexico
    3. Reduce the number of weapons coming into the US from Mexico.
    4. Try to prevent Terrorists from coming into the US from Mexico.
    5. Reduce the number of illegal immigrants coming into the US from Mexico.

    The democrats want to bring in illegals as their future potential voters.
    The cost of the wall increases as the democrats have delayed the wall for decades. Then they use that high cost to stop the wall.
    The cost of the wall will be mediated by the saving of not having to support the illegals, that should be the job of Mexico. The reduction of drugs, and crime coming into the US from Mexico will not only save money it will save lives. Terrorist acts are increasing all over the world today, and that alone should be reason to protect our borders.
    Additionally, the left says that we can't build an effective wall. Has the US become the can't do country. We already can't build a Hi Speed Rail, while many countries have already successfully done it. We have 350 million people today, so why shouldn't we increase our border patrol, and arm them to match the weapons used by the drug cartel. There is no honor among the drug cartel and the terrorists, they don't care about us, and neither does anyone that doesn't want a wall.

    Using the reasoning of the left, there would be no reason for you to put an alarm system in your home because they would say it would be ineffective.
    Does that make any sense to you. Shouldn't you do whatever you can to protect your family and yourself?

      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. smile

      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

    If the U.S. were serious about stopping illegal immigration it would eliminate the opportunities. In other words (stiffly fine and jail) EMPLOYERS who hire undocumented workers!!!
    For decades we have had a "wink-wink" illegal immigration policy where we have borders and laws BUT if you can get here there's a job waiting for you!
    Seriously if we are so adamant about stopping illegal immigration it's time we severely punished those who provide them opportunities.
    However I suspect that will never happen because illegal immigration is profitable for many communities, businesses, and industries.
    Solely blaming the undocumented workers is equivalent to blaming drug addicts but giving the dealers and cartels a free pass!
    No job opportunities = far less illegal immigration.
    Eliminate the "motive" or "incentive" and things will change.

      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.

    How far into the ground will this wall be buried?  The last time I checked, if you can't climb over a wall, then go under it.
