Some of the GOP presidential hopefuls have expressed support for a wall on the US-Mexico border. It sounds like a good idea on the surface, but it won’t work.
In case you didn’t know, there are already countless tunnels running from Mexico to the US. They are used to smuggle drugs and illegal immigrants every single day.
If we build a wall, it is just a matter of time until the Mexican criminal smugglers tunnel under or through the proposed wall. If we build it to go 100 feet under ground, they will tunnel 105 feet down. Of course they wouldn’t even need to, because they will simply work their way through a wall.
I assume the only reason these candidates are discussing such a wall is to stir up interest in their campaigns. Building a wall would be really expensive and a waste of money – and that’s not the Conservative Republican way!
