Well statistically, if I remember right the vast majority of illegals traveled here legitimately. No sneaking needed. Like 75% or more. And a small percentage actually got here by directly crossing the border like jumping a fence. Something like 50% were actual visa overstays, others came to visit and never left.Building a 50 foot wall just means they'll build 50 foot ladders - or do what they are already doing and just going underground.
And the problem is if we deported every single illegal immigrant, our commerce would turn to dust. New construction would be at a standstill and the cost of raw produce would skyrocket.
No matter how you twist it, a short section of tall wall is going to virtually nothing to stop anyone except maybe Cletus.
It's the equivalent of paying billions to plug a pin-hole in your dam when someone left the flood-gates wide open.
