Look, there has to be something to keep the invaders out. I'm not a huge fan of a big expensive barrier either, but there has to be something. Yes, you can use drones but how do you keep them out before they cross over short of just blowing them up from the sky like on that Jack Ryan show.

Is there a way to place radioactive material that won't have a large impact on the local animals?

What about sound? Is there a way to create some kind of dog whistle effect so that people won't come near?

There has to be something that can be done with all the tech that is available now

We need to build physical barriers where needed and change the asylum law that so many are taking advantage of today. Is there any other country in the world that allows people to be dropped off at their border after they treked 1000 miles plus through several countries only to claim asylum? Are there any countries that admit the asylum seekers to let them roam the country with only their word that they will return for their hearing date? We need to stop the asylum lies and make people wait in Mexico for their hearings.



We need to stop giving handouts and jobs to illegal aliens. If the benefits to being here dry up then they will either stop coming, self deport or turn to crime and if they commit crimes they get arrested and deported. There is no such thing as sanctuary and the cities and states that offer sanctuary for law breakers should face penalties.

It is ridiculous that someone can be here illegally, get arrested for a crime, do 7 years in prison, gets released, deported and then 2 weeks later he is arrested again in country. How does that happen?



We need to slap some sense into the Democrats that Illegal Immigration is a bad thing for everyone involved while LEGAL immigration is a good thing. They tend to often blur the lines between the 2.

We also need to enforce existing laws including Visa overstays.



I consider illegal immigration as one of the greatest challenges America faces today and something has to be done. We have a President that is trying but they call him a nationalist Hitler for trying to protect what most of us hold dear while the Dems are counting the potential future voters.



At our homes we have fences, security systems, walls, locked doors because we want to protect what is inside. Why is America not worth protecting ?

The solution is and remains obvious. We need to reduce the illegal population to some number that can be successfully maintained. Likely under a half million.

The only rational way to do that is to legalize most of the existing illegals and then rigidly enforce the immigration laws including running down the visa overstayers.

that's fine and dandy for those already here but the long term solution has to be to keep them out in the first place. That is the only thing that makes sense. Asylum laws will need to be eliminated as well.

im fine with a path to citizenship for those already here but there has to be a way to keep them out in the first place. otherwise an expanded guest worker program is redundant and worthless.

You could have land mines and armed drones.

Actually over two thirds of the arriving illegals are arriving by legal means. So sealing the border would at best cut arrivals by a third. And today it is probably worse than that. All the caravans are mostly asylum seekers. Our immigration system is simply too overloaded to deal with them.

Agreed. Just one more thing and that is to deny their U.S. born kids our birthright citizenship which is merely a PC policy not based on the actual wording of the 14th Amendment.
