    Why? Sure they could be...but unless we put them arms length apart all the way around the perimeter of the country and armed them well there, all the things we fear would still get into the country. We need to enforce our current laws and build a slightly larger fence than a white picket fence. Then go from there.

    The wall means nothing as people will get over it or under it, you need guns on the other side.

    How do you know. Prohibition never works if people really want something. Make drugs like alcohol now, regulate it and tax it. The very last people in the world that want drugs decriminalized is drug dealers. It just aint working, why stick with out current program. Think about it, there are literally tons of drugs moved around our country every day.

    I'm talking about people, we can't just regulate and tax them.

    If you are talking about stopping illegal immigrants you dont even need a fence, just arrest a few American Execs whose company hires them, make sure it makes all the news stations, and the problem is over. If they cant work here, there would be no reason to stay, so they would go back home.

    Might get messy too. Military is for killing people and breaking stuff.
    During WW ll U.S. Marines and soldiers use to pull guard duty along the Mexican border and they weren't there waiting for Japanese troops. They were keeping Mexican illegal aliens out of the USA.

    No one brought up Posse Comitatus back then.
