    if you have four inch poles thirty feet high (a guess) and they are close enough that a human cant get through then that is effectively a wall. the pointed tip makes it extremely difficult to get any kind of climbing device secured. and the fact that you can see through the slats makes it easier for long range monitoring for activity. seems like it would be a lot cheaper than a full wall anyway

    so who cares if its steel slats? why do they keep harping on that as if it wouldn't constitute a wall? id be ok with steel slats
    I wonder if an electric fence would be cheaper as well.

    You're so petty that IF a wall was built, you would spend even MORE money just to tear it down?

    And maybe it's just one solitary person's opinion; i.e., this girl holding the sign, which looks home-made to me. I don't think that a sweeping generalization about millions of people should be made based on one person's home-made sign.

    So, the figures come out to 25 Billion to build the wall. 2 Billion to build roads and infrastructure to transport the materials to the sites.
    30% for design and management and in 7 years, the cost of maintaining it exceeds the cost of building it.

    Then there's all that private property that has to be bought out from property owners whose land runs up to the border area.

    I'm thinking, no thanks.

    Well, that is the trash drumpf supporters. No thought or analysis. Their racism drumpfs everything. They are willing to lose economically if they can prevent brown people from coming in. Sad, sickening and disgusting.

    The best part is this. 1, MOST illegals do not cross illegally. They cross inn legally with Visas and never leave. Wall ain't stopping that.

    2, a large amount of illegal drugs cross in through Canada and a southern wall will inflate northern border crossings

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/illegal...s-on-the-rise/

    But these are facts. Trumps stupid supporters don't care about facts
