    And a wall on the US Mexico border is designed to do what? Keep people in Mexico...

It worked well for Austria until they joined the Schengen area. I'm not just talking about building a taller wall but complete militarization of the border. It solves your illegal immigration issue for sure and will greatly reduce trafficking of all kinds across the border. What do you Americans think especially those who live near the border?
    Many people have thought of it...but we have a president (and C-I-C) who would order them NOT to shoot but to escort them to the nearest shelter to begin processing them as immediate U.S. citizens and wall climbers.
    Liberalismódividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Except that's not the reason that some people want the wall. Albeit I'm pretty sure that is the reason lib politicians don't want the wall and why con politicians do. But people in general? Politics has nothing to do with it.

    With all those periods you seem to not believe me. I can easily prove that I in particular don't want the wall. Here is a previous post that said as much and why I don't care for the wall idea and what I think would work much better.

No anchor babies allowed. No jobs. No education.

    Hardly. They'd be quite free to go out of any of their other borders. If such a wall were to be built it would be meant to keep illegals and criminals out of the US. Just like the Great Wall of China was meant to keep out the Mongols.

    On the contrary - a strawman is when you throw out something that is different. You stated that a militarized border had NO PLACE in a free society. Pointing out that there are multiple free societies who require militarized borders in order to remain so is pretty germane.

    Which is why you are avoiding answering the point.

    Might get messy too. Military is for killing people and breaking stuff.
    Posse Comitatus wouldn't apply, since the army wouldn't be deployed against American citizens.

    To keep illegal aliens out of The United States.

    A wall to keep people out is about a row or two of barbed wire from a wall to keep people in.

    Comparing border security to the Berlin Wall is stupid. You know that, right?
