For the record, I am ambivalent about building a wall.

Walls work. That's why Israel has so many.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 (under Bush, with a Republican Congress) authorized building a fence along about 700 miles of the border between the United States and Mexico.

There are currently, 702 miles of fencing separates the United States from Mexico. This is what it looks like, BTW

That's entirely different in scope and nature from Trump's proposal.

But leave that aside. The problem is that a wall won't work.

The majority of illegal aliens in the US arrive by air, and overstay visas.

Most illegal drugs come in through regular ports and airports.

Moreover, Israel's border conditions are very different.

OP here- that's why I am ambivalent. I don't think it will stop the bulk of the problem.

I think the writer was just pointing out that numbers are not a good reason to reject the wall.
