Apr 1 '17 at 19:24 comment added Readin "dead people a year instead of the dozens we have now" needs to change. According to Wikipedia ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ): "The number of deaths reported in US Federal fiscal year 2015 (ending 30 Sept) was 240, which was the lowest number in at least 18 years." The LA Times reports more than 100 in Arizona alone. latimes.com/nation/…
Apr 1 '17 at 19:20 comment added Readin A good answer. I think more needs to be said about the perceived permanence of a wall vs other solutions. In particular, any discussion of this issue is incomplete without mention of the immigration reform that was already passed in the 1980s only to have the amnesty implemented without the enforcement. People in favor of stopping illegal immigration are extremely distrustful of the government's willingness to carry through on the enforcement side of any reform.

Mar 31 '17 at 4:56 comment added user1530 This is a decent answer but now feels like the question is more of an engineering question than a political one.
Mar 31 '17 at 3:48 comment added David says Reinstate Monica Way better answer, +1.
Mar 31 '17 at 3:43 comment added user9389 I now have more (but hopefully less offensive snarks), and removed what I consider the highest compliment of a politician. But I think it's more neutral and certainly expanded.

my snark was showing.
Mar 31 '17 at 1:28 comment added David says Reinstate Monica This is a good start to an answer, but it needs to be seriously expanded. IE I can think of a dozen other "implementable, physical" ways for border security, so why not one of those? Also, while I agree with you that the wall is silly, answers here should be political neutral. Please reduce the snarkyness.
