Since most of the areas where the fence will be built, at least in Texas, are on private property protestors and trespassers will be removed quickly. By force if necessary.

It's a start. How do cartels get drugs into the US? - BBC News Most come in on boats and underground tunnels. But, the Mexican police just over the border get told they'll make loads of money if they ignore and if they don't they'll die.

I think the trouble they'll see building the wall will be a real threat. Unfortunately there will be cartel trying to off the workers down there. It will be a tough job. I hope they are paid well.

I'm sure the wall isn't the only recourse we will be participating in. It's just part of it.

IF the cartels started murdering our people on US land; that'd be an Act of War and, Trump will send our Armed Forces to take care of business. Then Mexico will need who to side with: the cartels or its decent people. Choose wisely, Mexico.

On the places where they can't build anything, they may need to station permanent guards. We can't have open borders. I don't think most Dems or Repubs want that. We want drugs kept OUT and that will mean less temptation for American kids to turn into drug addicts. Do something about the drugs coming in by sea too. We have people going to Florida and bringing the drugs north in their cars. It's got to stop.

Out by Area 51, they have advanced motion detectors and surveillance. By the time you get anywhere near the restricted zone, they know exactly where you are and if you are feeling frisky and venture onto the restricted area, you will find yourself acquainted with some govt types that will roll up in a white SUV.

You will then find yourself in jail in Pioche a thousand miles away, and your vehicle impounded at your expense in a town a thousand miles in the opposite direction.

If we have this kind of technology, why don't we just use that instead of a wall? I'd rather hire more guys and use more tech than build a dumb wall.

How about both?

Think of it like this....runners, NBA players,ect...use headbands to keep sweat out of their eyes. It may not catch all of the sweat, but its better than having nothing at all on ur head. I see the wall in a similar fashion.

Well...some years back my daughter and son-in-law went to a Border Patrol job fair. The agent they talked to didn't mince any words. They were told that if they got hired, they would be on the graveyard shift and be the only agent around for 70 miles. If they needed backup, none would be coming anytime soon.

In order for your plan to work, many, many more agents will have to be trained and hired. They also have to be close enough to quickly respond to any intrusions.

The wall is not a "dumb wall". When Bill Clinton was president, a wall was built on the San Diego/Tijuana border which drastically cut down on crime and illegal crossings. Walls do work.
