The border is not secured with a wall. This is not the Middle Ages! Walls are largely symbolic instruments of oppression, see Berlin Wall and what Ronald Reagan had to say about it. If we want to secure our borders, then technology and decently PAID, stress PAID, border security professionals are what we need. End this ridiculousness and pay our government workers what they deserve to be paid for keeping us safe. Put the money into functional border security that will actually assist our border security officers in their task.
