    Tunnel detection crews, land mines, and guard towers with shoot to kill orders to stop anyone who attempts to violate our countries sovereignty. Before you call me stasi and compare my ideas to the Iron Curtain I will point out the difference. The guards on the iron curtain were attempting to keep people in. We would be attempting keep people who ignore our laws out.

    I still don't get how we have a legitimate case of national defense that we could use our military for, the Mexican border, and we don't do it. Yet, politicians will send us to some faraway country to guard THEIR borders. Just makes no sense to me. The Mexican border IS a legit national defense concern. If that is not a case of national defense, what is?
    The only bad part is that it would legitimately take at least a Regiment to secure it. We would need to set up FOBs (forward operating bases), COPs (Company Outposts), and PB (patrol bases) all along the border. The supply train to do this would be substantial. However, we could contract that out to civilians. AMERICAN civilians lol. It would cost some money, but that investment is worth more than the one's we've made in Afghan and Iraq IMO.

    It was also a wall. Does that mean all walls are bad?

    I'm not really in favor of militarizing the border, but lol, what a bad argument.

    Not any more, they took it down. It was in all the newspapers.

    Also, it was only militarized on one side--the side they were keeping people in, not on the side were they were welcomed. Clearly that distinction escapes you. End of discussion.

    Drug cartels, violence, and illegal immigrants flood our borders. It's common sense to militarize it in my opinion, I would support such a thing.

    i think this is a great idea, it could easily solve our illegal immigration. . But we would need to make it so that the wall was a little ways back from the actual border, because in order to do anything without causing an international problem, this military could only take action once they were on our side illegally. But it would have to be new and already home soldiers, we have to many treaty's with other country's who use our military to police their country's, especially the navy

    Ah, just mine the border. It's cost effective, brutal beyond imagination, and it doesn't say you can't come in. You can, if you feel lucky.
