      I have been to the border more times than I can count. Most of my family live not more than 3 miles from the border in Texas. I bought a small ranch about 5 miles from the border for my parents. As of the last time I was there, a few years ago, there has never been a wall or fence. What most people see as barriers are mostly near cities and towns but if a person can hike a few miles, they can walk around. For years, when I was younger we used to cross into Mexico and back on a dirt road, with a makeshift bridge built for one car.

If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      ... which is probably why people are calling for a bigger wall so people can't just climb over it. You'd have to dig some pretty impressive foundations to step people tunneling under it.

      As far as the topic of military funds being used, military funds are for national defense and the purpose of the wall is for national defense. Whatever the merits or otherwise of how well the wall will work, national defense does seem like an obvious source for the funds.

      No doubt there are parts of the border, walled or not, where it is fairly easy to cross. HOWEVER, there is no denying that as better sections of walls in the most critical areas are put in place, the number of immigrants evading apprehension declines. The facts are the facts.
