    It would be trivial to use ground penetrating radar to find tunnels along a wall. It could even be automated and built into the structure.

    You guys used to say illegals do the jobs Americans won't do. My own best friend said it to me and I had to object, asking her if she thought I didn't want to do my job. She had no idea illegals worked in the building trades. LOL

    Initially, Mr. Trump told the reporters that “real power is through respect,” according to a transcript of the interview. Then he added: “Real power is, I don’t even want to use the word: ‘Fear.’”
    Typical bully.

    If we don't increase immigration, the USA is going to die out. We are not having enough babies to maintain the population level where it is.

    I disagree. There is an even more effective solution which will make America far safer than that. Legalize all drugs. Make them widely and easily available, no questions asked. Tax them. Raise revenue. Stop arresting people, trying them and incarcerating them. Huge savings in reduced demand for police, courts and prisons, freeing them up to focus efforts on other areas of crime.

    This completely removes the profits from illegal drugs and turns drug selling into a legal business with an honest paycheck for doing a job, something the gangs have no interest in. It is the 'nuclear option' to end drug smuggling and shatter the power of gangs. Take away the profits.

    Take all the new revenue and use it to fund a huge network of rehab centers. Have public awareness campaigns to steer drug abusers towards them. Treat drug abuse as the illness it is. The fact that it is a crime causes violence, huge costs, and death.

    Legalize all drugs. Have widespread warnings about what is what, and what it will do to you. Instead of running from drugs, pretending the lure is not there, we need to accept them and take a whole new approach to dealing with people who don't know any better than to mess up their lives with drugs.

    We should only be locking up violent people who are a danger.

    I know, right? One of the biggest threats is from big pharma. More reasons why we need a very large rehab system. Your way gets cops killed. Mine doesn't.

    It would also be trivial to use infrared technology to spot human movement, or motion detectors with search lights. In any event, you do not need the wall.

    BTW, ground penetrating radar built into the structure would limit its abilities to that small section.
    “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
