    A wall is only part of the solution, not the final solution. States doing what Arizona and Oklahoma have done will discourage illegal immigration. Cracking down on those who hire illegals will also help discourage illegal immigration. Our border does not need to be a revolving door. States will have to do it because politicians on the local and state levels live close to home and therefore have to face the peoples' wrath, it is the state and local levels that actually deal with illegals not the feds and its the citizens on the state and local levels that the tax payer money comes from.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Apparently not, as in this incident was an accidental discovery by a Border patrol.
    How would we have this capability?

    What I don't understand is why generally those big on the free market want more money for interdiction rather then stopping demand by eliminating demand. Who supplies unwanted goods? Communists. Who buys unwanted goods? Communists at gun point. Other then that, no demand will end the drug war.
    Why ya wailin' on communists man, jeeze...

    It is relatively easy to detect wherever something disturbs the ground under the surface.
    While I would say this is not so easy when the tunnel is under water, it most certainly can be discovered easily once it reaches waterside.

    A fence will not stop illegals, nor will a wall.
    I take it you have never built a massive wall on water.

    Ehh, maybe i should have used proper terminology: Sheet piling

    Depending on the height of a structure, piles are usually driven below sea level between 30%-50% of the structures height.
