You are apparently taking lessons from Duma in how to be unnecessarily offensive rather than merely posting about an issue.

I say "maybe" because I do keep hearing about tunnels even close to Tijuana. That might be drugs rather than people, but it doesn't speak well to secure borders.

And, of course, putting up a fence and actually keeping people from coming through N miles of border doesn't mean much if all it results in is a switch in location of where the crossings occur.

You might want to check your facts on attempting to suggest that the funding has been allocated to complete a fence across even the southern border which has not been implemented by Obama. This is far from the truth. Moreover, Obama has been deporting more people than any other president. Hopefully, this is starting to change, but that is the record to date. Obama's support from Hispanics is based on what they hope he will do, not on his actual slowness at building any funded fencing or being soft on deporting to date.

And, of course, a southern fence is only going to address the Hispanic immigrants who are too poor to get visas or arrange to come in some other way. What about the other 40%? You want a fence along the highly porous Canadian border too? Perhaps a sea wall around the coast?
