    I say we give illegals Atzland, but all the liberals in the nation have to move there first. Then we can wall off the rest of the country and be done with it.

    The Mexicans have created Aztlan right here in our midst. They don't need us to give them anything because they've already taken it. Vast stretches of California are now like the deep interior of Mexico. Impoverished, uneducated and unskilled. This is the new America. Just like the old Mexico.

    Costly would be one issue yes, but hardly the only issue. The longer the border, the harder it is by a large margin to control it. When you consider the Berlin Wall was ~100 miles long and still not 100 % effective, compare that now to just under 2000 miles.

    The Korean DMZ is an example of how the illegal immigration problem can be solved. It's cheap to administer. The barbed wire and land mines just sit there waiting for trespassers. When the trespasser steps on the detonator, the trespass is over.

    So you want our southern border to be controlled like the North Korean border? I am not interested in such a police state.

    The difference between the two should be obvious. Try not to be too disengenous please.

    Fence, land mines, seismic monitors and camera's have come a long way from the days of the Berlin wall.

    There are illegal aliens with guns in my neighborhood. The Korean DMZ sounds a lot more peaceful than mi barrio. Besides, Koreans respect education and illegal Mexican aliens don't respect anything. Try living in my shoes.

    1. Korean border is MUCH shorter...
    2. The landmines are also supplemented by armed forces on both sides... on one side, actively working to keep its people from leaving the DPRK
