“My Plan for a Border Fence” (aka “I’m an Idiot”)

When I was around eight-years-old, I thought there were walls up on the American borders. Except between Alaska and Canada. (Actually at the time I thought we should’ve given Alaska to Canada - geographically it made sense.)

It turns out there are no walls. Oh, there are fences here and there where lawmakers have tried to quell the surge of illegal immigrants hopping the border and creating all sorts of chaos among the local populations and governments.

In this day and age there are those who would try to do us harm. I imagine they would try to get into the country where it’s easiest. It’s easiest where you can just walk across the border.

But I guess building such a wall would be expensive. Too expensive.

I have an idea though. Maybe we could hire cheap immigrant labor to build it for us.

Brilliant suggestion. I have seen many cheap immigrant laborers training in construction in upscale So. Cal homes, but we may have to wait for the housing bubble to burst first.
