Then we mustn't interfere with his entrepreneurial spirit.

"...a human smuggler interviewed in Arizona by USA Today
said that a physical barrier would make it incredibly difficult for illegal aliens to get across."

The old fences were easy to jump but they are being replaced with better barriers as well as more border patrol agents.

I'd like to know how supposedly poor peasants looking for work can afford thousands of dollars to pay traffickers.

Exactly what would you expect a trafficer to say?

"The wall is no problem?" Of course he would say that. A wall removes human patrols. Any wall can be breached, and with no one around, the smuggler will always use a breach until its discovered. That could be a very long time if a wall seems to be real impressive and/or expensive.

Get real.

There are extended walls by the border already, and there are crossing points in every one of them. No wall will ever prevent the human traffic. If you really want border security, then forget walls and begin hiring more Border Patrol agents.

Pay them enough that they won't be tempted by corruption, and hire enough to be effective patrollers. No smuggler will ever try to cross an area where the patrols are consistent, frequent, and alert. Humans are much more able to stop another human than any wall.

i have a solution to this issue here, these human traffickers can have the choice;

1: accept the building of the wall and deal with it

2: accept the death penalty when they get caught trafficking in human beings

personally i hope they take choice number two.

How dare they oppress individuals such as himself with a wall!

The State Department will have final say on how profitable (or not) the wall will be in terms of human trafficking.

It is, after all, the Walmart of the human trafficking business.
