    U.S. pop/three 102,474,081
    U.S./Mex border 124,755,840 inches (1969 mi)

    they would have to stand 1.2 inches apart

    ugh that's not close enough!!1

    What a great idea!!! Mass the entire population of the U.S. (men, women & children ) along the Mexican border, (in 8 hr shifts) & have them face Mexico.

    A few problems I foresee:

    1. Who works at making food, driving trucks, works in hospitals, goes to school.......... or doing anything else while we all stand on the border?
    2. Suppose the Mexicans are smart enough to get into a boat & land at a beach somewhere? (there's no one left to stop them??)
    3. We no longer will have any armed forces (as we're all standing on the Mexican border...facing out) so Al Quieda can just drive across any Canadian border crossing & take over Washington DC

    Those are just a few minor details but....I think your plan has real merit!!

    I did the math exactly as you asked. no originality whatsoever. my ideas are better than this, that's how you know it wasn't mine.

    if you think about it though, you couldn't FIT a human being every 1.2 inches.

    if we wanted instead one person say, every 6 feet, so they could safely do jumping jacks if they felt like it that would leave 59/60ths of the population to be in the army or even grow a few crops. we could even spare a man or two to put along the gulf in case those wetbacks get wise.

    Of course its possible.
    Build a wall 50 feet thick, 200 feet high, completely around our entire nation and *d a m n* the expense. Ingore the Chinese, the Russian, the French, and other failures...
    do you really think a fence along the mexico border would cost more than what illegal immigration costs us ?

    people like you never bother to think. you just like to imagine in your own head that your opponent's view is funny without ever considering it.

    you are the problem.

    There's a difference between possibility likelihood here. Its definitely possible for the U.S. to seal its borders even if takes years, but its not likely.

    5. Build a double fence at both borders with intruder sensors and guard towers.

    6. Patrol coastal waters out 20 miles, board all suspicious vessels.

    That should be a fair start.
    there is a million ways to do it. and most of them will work. but nobody will admit to this because they don't want this problem solved.
