The wall in places I'm sure can be effective, but its a waste of time, money and resources as it's currently proposed imo. The Republican mantra that the Democrats don't want the borders secure is hilarious. They are proposing over a billion dollars in border security. The Dems need to admit too that they have been for fencing and the idea of some places having a wall. We've gotten to a point where very little can truly get done, and either side can hold the nation at hostage if they dont get what they want. Pass a law that the government ALWAYS has to be funded, and it will help.
