    No politics just an honest question. Please convince me.
    Nothing will convince you that Trump should get his wall.

    In any case NOTHING STOP illegal immigration...

    ...and a wall will not appreciably slow it...IF IT SLOWS IT AT ALL.

    What you ought to do is stop pretending "the wall" is about border security. IT ISN'T. "The wall" is about an unkeepable promise the moron, Donald Trump made repeatedly during his campaign to the morons who were willing to listen.

    The border to the south will NEVER be secure...just as the border to the north will NEVER be secure. The border to the south appeals to the morons who support Donald Trump mostly because the people on the other side are mostly of a darker color than most European whites.

    And how do you propose we do this "tracking"??

    Damn Frank I expected you of all here to have some reasonable ideas on enhancing border security without additional walls. But all you did is parrot the anti wall anti Trump rhetoric.

    Most illegals and drugs come in thru the 48 ports of entry along the Mexican border or they fly in.

    About 53,000 TSA employees, 54,000 Customs and Border Protection agents and officers, and 42,000 Coast Guard members and staff must work without pay, according to research from the Senate ...

    No politics just an honest question. Please convince me.
    You're the one using politics as well as ignorance. No one is speaking of no barriers.

    And your title to this thread is also a lie. It insinuates that one can control the border with some kind of barrier.
    “I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.” Leo Tolstoy

    You asked a question...and I responded to it as truthfully as I could, Grump.

    There is a serious problem with the essential predicate of your questions...namely that SOMETHING could "virtually stop illegal immigration."

    NOTHING CAN DO THAT...NOTHING. (With the exception of eliminating the notion of "illegal immigration" and making all immigration legal.)

    So if you insist...I will offer that: One way to "virtually stop illegal immigration without some type of barrier"...IS TO ELIMINATE THE CONCEPT OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Make the rule be that anyone who makes it to the shores of our nation...no matter how...will be deemed to have LEGALLY immigrated to this country.

    That certainly is the way the founding fathers did it...and most of the people who formed the early Republic.

    In any case, the wall (no matter how high or how long or of what composition) will not make enough of a dent in "illegal immigration" to justify a few million dollar of expenditure...let alone tens of billions of dollars.


    So...I have come up with something that requires no wall.

    Do you want to adjust your question to eliminate what I devised?

    I'll tackle the adjusted question if you do.

    You didn't really want ideas, did you. You just wanted pats on the back from your con buddies.

    Where did I say anything about guard towers? You could have more agents actually walking the borders 24-7, similar to cops patrolling a beat or security walking the floors of buildings. Also there could be more cameras and alarm systems detecting sound or movement. Think home security on a much larger basis.

    You're welcome.

    And this is an honest answer! A fact REPUBLICANS WILL NOT TALK ABOUT OUT IN THE OPEN. Period. Do your own research!

    (PLUS hundreds of thousands, maybe millions here WILL GO HOME!)


    DON'T HIRE THEM!
    DON'T HIRE THEM!
    DON'T HIRE THEM!
    SEP 2016: Obama asked McConnell to co-write a LETTER of CONDEMNATION of Russian interference
    into the upcoming election and to alert US. The CIA DIR
    had briefed BOTH parties Congr'l leaders of the same.

    McConnell told Brennan,
    “You’re trying to screw the Republican nominee.”

    McCONNELL REFUSED to sign the letter.

    The rest is history!

    The real problem is Trump's government shutdown. As for illegal immigration, most consists of people entering the country legally, but overstaying their visa.
