you know that the Southern boarder of Mexico is militarized,
so why can't the US?
It certainly could do it if Congress authorizes it. I suspect that
there'd be a lot of resistance, but any authorizing Act could be
modeled after the way the Coast Guard is authorized to react against
I'm not sure how effective it would be in the long run though.
Guarding crossings between the various States would improve
More seriously, I wonder how effective it would be simply to use the
border as an ongoing training exercise where the military reported
detected activity as public information -- even the Border Patrol
ought to be able to benefit from it. I.e., there's probably some way
around restrictions on monitoring and sharing information without
triggering 'Posse Comitatus' backlash.
IMO, it never has been that we that need a wall nor the military.
What's necessary is being willing to pay taxes to pay for it. Just
hire ten (or 20 or 100) times the number of B.P. officers and fund
their activities. If we can't convince ourselves to fund what we've
already got going, why is there a feeling that funding for something
new will make a difference?
