Tear Down This Wall
Some areas, the land is relatively flat and not much of a challenge. Other areas are some of the most god awful landscape you've ever seen and the task is a lot more difficult. So difficult, that the fence just stops. A little farther down the line it starts up again. All total, only about a third of the fence is completed.
Even if the fence was 100% completed (something that will probably never happen) it does little to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States. The documentary showed video of people routinely scaling the fence and hustling off to a better life in America. You see, where there's a will, there's a way.
This whole project is a colossal waste of money and an extreme cause of environmental destruction. Instead of building a fence, we need to make it less attractive for illegals to come to America. We can do this by attacking the people who give them jobs. When I am King, I will severely punish those who employ undocumented workers. I'll start with a $10,000 per worker fine for first offenders and mandatory jail time for repeat offenders.
To paraphrase a former president, "Mr. Obama, tear down this wall."
