Wall building is stupid. People will just find another way. Overstaying tourist visas is like 45% of the problem and those people come on planes.
Wall building would be a nice way to put folks to work who are willing to pick up a shovel. And very, very cheap, compared to putting armed folks on carriers and sending them out to kill folks we have no beef with.
The evil is comparative. It has to be when how much less evil is the only option
"Make it illegal to hire an undocumented worker and the problem"
It's already illegal. We just don't enforce it, sadly. Jail time for those who hire illegals would do wonders for both the immigrathing "effect" and its outcome.
