Trump isn't a figurative type of guy. If you look at his business history he is very 'literal' in how he goes about his plans. Of course, plans can change but I don't believe he is going to happy with a virtual "wall". His compromise wils take place on size, scope, and structure choices of the wall (you hear him walking back and being open to various sorts of design types for example).RIslander said:I believe when Trump talks about the Trump Wall, he's not speaking of a physical barrier as the end goal. He's being figurative and I believe the goal is more of a 'virtual wall'. His aim is to reduce the supply/demand of northbound illegal crossings by eliminating the ability of illegals to find work in the US (demand) and, through redistribution of wealth via a more progressive Mexican government, increase the economic situation for their poor (supply).
This would drastically reduce the border patrols current burden and render the current barriers exponentially more effective.

400-500 miles by the end of next year
270 panels going in a day
44 000 panels already up
30 feet high
Steel square exterior with 2 rebars individually filled with concrete
High risk areas have a 2 wall system
4 attempt to cut through have all failed so far
The purpose of the wall is to slow down the aliens who wants to cross so that border patrol officers can arrive and apprehend the them
The wall is wired to detect attempts to breach it, pinpointing which area is being affected
When designing the wall, they got world class mountain climbers to attempt to climb wall prototypes and the wall that is going up was unclimbable
The wall is deep enough so that tunnelling underneath would be unsafe
The wall is designed to absorbe heat from the sun so that it will be extremely hot to touch, there is talk of painting it black to better absorbe heat
3 separate countries have asked to copy the design of the wall for their own country
This wall is more expensive than a completely concrete wall
Concrete wall would have been less safe for border patrol. When arriving on scene they can't see people throwing rocks over the wall for example. In the past, drug smugglers would catapult bags of drugs over the wall and it would hit people on the other side
Samseau said:This wall is ****ing insane and has completely blown away my expectations. Trump's wall is going to last an easy 5000 years. It will outlast America and probably serve as an artifact for future civilizations to discover. Concrete inside of steel hardened over rebar? I'm not sure most tanks could plow through or blow this kind of wall up. This is military grade, extreme shit that would hold back anything less than the most powerful bombs.
Trump is pulling it off. If illegal crossing arrests plummet and the price of heroin skyrockets we will know the wall is working, and Trump will be a national hero.
Keep hating, blackpillers. Ineffective my ass, no president has done even close to what this one is doing since FDR.
The thread was made before Trump was even inaugurated.Samseau said:The wall was shown in the Donald Trump thread. I think everyone forgot this dumb blackpill thread existed.
https://www.breitbart.com/border/20...-of-74-miles-of-improved-border-wall-systems/Border Patrol officials say communities along the border are safer following the completion of 74 miles of improved border wall systems. Those systems include 30-foot bollard walls, new border-access roads, lighting, and electronic surveillance. Construction on an additional 158 miles is underway with 450 miles scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.
That's not a wall, that's a fence.
Idk, I mean I agree it's not what was promised, but if you compare the size of it to the excavator and other vehicles way down in the picture, I'd say it's much larger than any "fence" I've ever seen.That's not a wall, that's a fence.
Nobody ever chanted "BUILD THE FENCE!" at the rallies.
Mexico never paid to build a big beautiful wall. The border patrol paid to build a fence.
