"Improvements at Land Border Push Smugglers West, to the Pacific" tells the story of migrants who were stranded at sea this week after an attempt to cross the maritime border failed. People are using surfboards, jet skis, and simply swimming across to get to the US. The piece really focuses on the new surge in ocean-based illegal entry, but leaves the obvious unstated: The Border Wall IS NOT WORKING!
The high-tech surveillance, the reinforced steel walls, and the Minutemen have only succeeded in pushing traffic to new and improved outlying areas, not in stopping immigration.
Well, duh. Because the border wall idea is insane.
I know, I know, and anyone else who lives along the border knows that the wall won't work. But it's a damn shame that it will work to keep in/out wildlife. For them, there are no life-vests.
Chin up, kids.
