Here is a video showing the constuction of the southern border wall by on behalf of the Feds by one company at six seperate sites. It is detailed and refutes the argument that very little is being done. But, see for yourself, if like the MSM and Stocker08 you think very little is being done. Very educational at the least. Suit yourself.

I hear Mexican mice are tunneling past the wall and bringing in the novel Mexican Corona Virus and the Dos Equis XX Virus.

Is Mexico still paying for it?
Oh, you took that literally? You need your decoder ring. It meant, that in the off chance this very incremental easily penetrated barrier works, we will save enough money to pay for the wall over the lifetime of it, provide the other side bans ladders shovels and bolt cutters.

Don't forget to start from the Mexican side.
Why don't you go down there and make a video showing how easy it is to break in without being arrested. I could even draw you a map as to how to get to Mexico from here so you won't end up in Canada. That is, if you really disagree with the Border Patrol and think it would be easy, even for you.

The Wall Isn't Working

... On Friday, The Washington Post reported that sections of the border wall have huge holes, by design, to prevent flash floods from damaging it. Sources familiar with the wall designs tell the Post that the structure will act like a giant sewer gate during those periodic downpours, allowing water to pass through but causing rocks, trees, and other debris carried by the water to slam into it.

To avoid potential damage, there 30-foot floodgates will be built into the wall, and the floodgates will be left open for months at a time during the rainy season. John Ladd, a cattle rancher who has one such floodgate on his property—built into an older section of border wall constructed in 2008—tells the Post that he's seen smugglers drive pick-up trucks through the openings.

Smugglers have already been spotted cutting holes in new sections of the wall, and there's a long history of people gaining access to the United States by tunneling or catapulting their way in. More than 200 such tunnels discovered since 1990, and another one was found just this week near San Diego, California.

In a rare moment of admitting to reality, Trump has even conceded that "you can cut through any wall." Exactly. That's why spending an estimated $60 billion on what amounts to little more than a presidential vanity project is so foolish.

Even if it didn't get cut through or knocked over or otherwise circumvented, the wall wouldn't do much to limit illegal immigration. Most illegal immigrants to the United States don't hop the border; they land at airports and then overstay their visas. It also wouldn't do much to stop the flow of drugs into the United States, because they're mostly smuggled in through checkpoints.


But of course, the true purpose of Trump's border wall has little to do with drugs or immigrants. It's a political symbol more than anything: a way to appeal to border hawks, a neat hook for the crowds at his rallies to chant.

One of the primary tricks is to cut through the bottom of one of the vertical segments (that they call a bollard - fence technical jargon, I guess) using a Sawzall. Then they bend it out of the way to make the gap wide enough for adults to go through. Or pass bigger boxes of drugs through (small boxes fit through as is, but that’s not efficient).

When they’re done they bend it back and solder the cut closed. Seems rather polite of them, but really it’s in hopes that the Border Patrol won’t notice, and the Sawzall will cut through it like butter next time.

Just in case you visit Mexico but lose your passport, here’s the instructions to get back home the Sawzall way https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/national/smugglers-are-sawing-through-new-sections-of-trumps-border-wall/2019/11/01/25bf8ce0-fa72-11e9-ac8c-8eced29ca6ef_story.html?outputType=amp

For sure. Wouldn't want those 46 cases rushing our borders. Think of the hysteria?! Good thing we aren't wasting money on an ineffective wall. LOL!
