    We all know a wall is, well, a "wall".

    It didn't work for China. And they spent a thousand years building it.

    It can be easily defeated by a tunnel or a ladder.

    We know the money to build the wall would be better spent on border agents and surveillance equipment. It would not only be cheaper, but it would be more productive.

    I believe the Alt White and the Right Wing want the wall as a monument to racism. No one is protesting illegal white people coming in. Only blacks and browns.

    Is the Alt White sending a message saying "People of color, KEEP OUT!"?

    Hispanic is not a race. And according to the last census, most Hispanics in the US consider themselves to be caucasian.

    China did repel invaders with its wall....of course sites like Mother Jones claim otherwise.
    Some reading for the OP...
    Great Wall of China - Wikipedia
    Of course OP is an idiot with no desire to post information, just rant propaganda. Idiot gets his info from blogs.

    It was a question I hadn't heard before.

    So is it?

    The wall won't really do anything. It will only be a monument. What is a monument?
