  • Walker's Wall

    First one in the south, now one in the north.
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is putting a new twist on the topic of securing the border, a staple among the GOP candidates running for president, by pointing north.Walker said in an interview that aired Sunday that building a wall along the country's norther border with Canada is a legitimate issue that merits further review.
    Republican candidates for president have often taken a get-tough approach on deterring illegal immigration, but they usually focus on the border with Mexico. Walker was asked Sunday morning on NBC's "Meet the Press" whether he wanted to build a wall on the northern border, too. Walker said some people in New Hampshire have asked the campaign about the topic.
    "They raised some very legitimate concerns, including some law enforcement folks that brought that up to me at one of our town hall meetings about a week and a half ago. So that is a legitimate issue for us to look at," Walker said.

    Doesn't have to be a physical wall. We have the technology to build a virtual wall. What we currently do not have is a president with the integrity to enforce Federal law.

    Anyone who says a wall cannot be built knows absolutely nothing about history, beginning with Hadrian's Wall and ending with the Iron Curtain and places like the North Korean borders. Yes, it CAN be done, and it is on a routine basis, by nations smaller and less able than our own.

    If nothing else, America needs to stop the flood of drugs and the human trafficking coming across our borders every single day.

      It will have to be one helluva bigass wall to keep this out of the US...

        Looking at the figures on Americans who have moved to Canada over the years for various reasons ....maybe the proposed wall, rather than keep us guys out , is to keep your less than happy citizens "IN"

            Hi

            Its an issue but not a big one in terms of reality or actually practicality.

            Though a wall doesn't have to be a physical entity along the whole length, the cost and efficacy will be against it.
            If your desperate enough you'll keep trying until you succeed or perish, and a wall is no real deterrent. Also how are you going to stop the eventual movement of illegals coming by boat along the US coast, build more walls!

            Regards

              Oh, well, if they want to get into Wisconsin, and really who would in its current condition, they can come in their little rubber dingies, or kayaks or maybe in their cabin cruisers. That northern border is not likely to ever be secure.

                That works, too. Of course, you were happy to get them, so all you did was to encourage draft dodgers and other cowards and criminals, and you allow terrorists to easily cross your border into America.

                  Apparently you don't have your own border. May I suggest establishing one?

                    Hi MM, can you name one terrorist incident in the US where the terrorist had come from Canada?

                      While we are at it lets lay some mine fields and build some pill boxes to keep the whiskey runner out. Turn our country into a second NK. If that is want you wish for fine. Just don't do it with my country. Pack your bag and move to the NK

                      While we are at it, lets build a second line of defense on the borders of TX/AZ/CA. Ridiculous but no more than some ideas here.

                            the border has two sides,

                            While in your mind Canada provided a safe house for our draft dodgers, how many Canadians served in our Army in Nam? Who has the better neighbor, Canada or the US? IMO there is no better neighbor in the world to have than Canada and that is without barbed wire, mine fields and pill boxes. Our border is very unusually in our world today.
                            two hundred years without a major border conflict. That must be some sort of record.

                            What your talking about is pure trash.

                              It's too late to build a northern wall. Rafael Edward Cruz is already here.
