    I saw another clip somewhere of ladder brigades showing their skills in running up to a tall wall, putting up the ladders and climbing the wall and then pulling the ladder up and over in matters of seconds. It was a high wall. I'll have to search for it.

    The point is that unless the border patrols have 24/7 monitoring of every section of the wall, it can be scaled in less than a minute...like it's not even there...an "invisible wall"...a $24 billion wall.

    Yes I posted the ladder Olympics clip. Let's hope the "wall" will never be budgeted. But the Australian clip shows clearly what the world thinks of us!!

    Trump is refusing to act on DACA unless the budget includes funding for his foolish wall,

    A few days ago, Senator John McCain and Senator Chris Coons released a bi-partisan bill that would would protect the dreamers, but would NOT provide funding for the wall.

    This morning, it was revealed that Mitch McConnell does not intend to allow this bill to come to a vote (which has generated another petition). To further complicate things, John Kelley said that he is not sure if Trump has the authority to extend the March 5 deadline for dreamers to renew their status, which ignores the fact that Trump thought that he had authority to end the DACA program.

    Guy; I've said way in the past that this country has a lot to learn; your thread shows such over and over again. All they do is kick the can down the road and make things worse than that they are. The McCain/Coons thing sounds reasonable; but is already rejected (certainly by the W.H.)

    The French have an expensive lesson in border control. They had faith in the Maginot Line which failed. What is the source of Trump's illogic that gives him such faith in a wall. I think he just wants a huge indestructible monument to Truump.7

    Chet, don't forget the "Berlin" wall as well the Chinese "wall" ( the biggest in the world) they all lost their purpose. Of course Trump wants to fly high above it (in A.F 1) to claim it to be the next world "wonder" which "he" created. Bring me the "barf bucket" please.

    Defense is the worst position to be in. Using a huge fixed obvious structure for a solution to counter mobile stealthy unencumbered individuals who's only goal is to get on the other side is a tough job. Trump wants a huge monument bearing his name. Stipulating a meaningful name should be part of any wall deal. Trouble is most people would be insulted to have that wall named for them.
