A Fence On The Border
For those skeptical of Donald Trump's plan for a fence along the entire U.S/ Mexico border, setting aside the logistics involved in such an effort, the San Diego Union- Tribune gives us a look at how things are where we already have fences. One resident on the border notes the changes before and after:
“Before the wall was built, the flow was easier. People just went back and forth.” Afterward, people picked a side and stayed there, since it was harder to cross.
So, it seems the fence might actually encourage illegals to stay in the country longer? Who'da thunk?
As for me, I might have wrote before I'm not an "open borders" libertarian if for no other reason than once "they" get here they eventually vote. When they do, they don't vote in favor of liberty.
I was listening to NPR yesterday. They had a segment on Mexicans that joined the military yet still got deported for one reason or another. A former marine- he was deported but is a U.S. citizen now- being interviewed said he planned on voting this year. For whom? Bernie Sanders. I rest my case. It is not in the interests of liberty to have open borders.
