So why do we need a wall?


#367

It was so effective at least 5,000 defected over it even with the additional security measures.


#368

Of course it would have been, people were scared of being killed in the “death zone”, not the wall…


#369

Fox News Comments between Wallace and Sarah Huckabee Illegal come to this country by plane is very true. Data base on the people arriving to this country will be on record, Caravan with illegal immigrants forcing entry to this country and no data base on illegal children which are used to shield for entry by illegal immigrants. illegal children cannot be brought by plane there is a policy in place. Airline scrutinize proper documentation when bringing a children here in the USA without proper documentation. Some they swim to shore to come to this country.Border security is required any in any country under the planet.


#371

Well-written too.


#372

If that were true the Russians would not have built 4 generations of walls around Berlin.

Thousands were escaping across the line weekly until the first generation wall was built, then it was reduced to a few hundred.

By the time the 3rd generation wall was completed an escape made huge news worldwide.

With the fourth generation, they became all but impossible.


#373

So then maybe we need more manpower? Kind of like that and other elements the democrats are willing to fund?

A wall is useless without people responding to that guy with a ladder.


#374

5,000 over the course 30+ years, out of how many attempts? That is the key question.

Despite your attempt to rewrite history, the berlin WALL was very effective.


#375

You need to read more about the history of the GWOC. And whether circumventing or breaching, failure is failure.


#376

You should really try writing this in English. It looks like you might have some good points.


#377

Who said anything about an unattended physical barrier???


#378

I’ve read a great deal about it.

The cost of breeching it was so high that the majority of invaders chose to circumvent it.

It’s primary purpose originally was to stop the Hun raids, and later the Mongols.

No one is suggesting our border wall is being built to hold off the Mexican Army or that it cannot be breached with enough concerted effort. The point is to reduce illegal crossings to ta trickle keeping the numbers low enough for the BP to be much more successful in interdiction and to reduce the load on the overwhelmed immigration courts.


#379

Wildrose said we do not have the manpower needed.


#380

You are putting words in his mouth, paraphrasing him out of context.


#381

We don’t, not without effective physical barriers.


#382

I wonder if there is any correlation between people who want the fence and a DOS 6.22 ISO laying on their bean bag chair. .


#383

That makes no sense, the most important factor in manpower would be response time, which is simply a factor of density along the border.

Responding to a group passing the border with a 30 foot ladder versus walking though some existing barrier would make little difference.


#384

And that is the key.

100 illegals rushing an unsecured section of the border would today likely go unnoticed. If the border was completely secure, those same 100 illegals would be slowed down by a physical barrier, backed by sophisticated technology. A rapid response team could quickly be dispatched to prevent the illegals from breaching the barrier.


#385

Yeah. Illegal crossings are only down 80% across the whole border. But it’s a crisis or something.


#386

Please show us this “plan” that you speak of, and what the associated costs and spends are for each. Thanks!
