An opinion: I view the Wall as a scheme to scam 40 billion dollars from the treasury. We don't need the wall. It will be built by private contractors who are known for their poor quality work, lack of oversight, their cost overruns, their fraudulent billing. There is no transparency and the contract will go to cronies of the Republicans, nepotism. We need to Federalize the border with Mexico and establish Military bases which can patrol the borders. With should infest the border with deadly snakes and insects. Better yet, we could build a forest of trees. We have no idea of the impact on the climate if a tall wall is built. Further, the border patrols would be drastically reduced and underfunded, maybe privatized and then drugs would really flood the nation. Bad idea this wall.
