Arms Race?

It is amazing that anyone thinks that it is even possible to build a wall all the way across the southern border of the US. That’s just under 2000 miles long.

Even more amazing is that anyone believes that even if it is built, that this will stop illegal immigrants from entering the country. After all, the “iron curtain” or the Berlin wall were much shorter and built on easier terrain, but they ultimately failed.

And finally, a desire for a wall requires that you think immigrants are a bad idea. And yet, almost all the people who think they want a wall are the descendents of immigrants in the not-too-distant past.
