We’re still building a border fence down south, and boy is it half-assed:
More than 600 miles of fencing are already up — a hodge-podge of metal panels, wire mesh and steel posts…. [Drug] smugglers build ramps to drive over fencing, dig tunnels under it, or use blow torches to slice through. They cut down metal posts used as vehicle barriers and replace them with dummy posts, made from cardboard.
The fact that the fence is so easily undermined means that government contractors “return again and again for repairs.” You know what I call that?
