Border wall won't span sea to sea

And if Trump won, they should rush north before he could build a border wall. Later in the hearing, Sen.

President Donald Trump's campaign promise of a "big attractive wall" along the Mexican border all but came tumbling down Wednesday as the secretary of Homeland Security said that there would only be solid barriers on parts of the border, combined with technology and human patrols.

Here are five of the more interesting ones hoping to make the cut. The finger of blame can be pointed at any number of people, including the Democrats (for running a highly unpopular candidate), the media (for reporting on every dumb thing Trump said, which is nearly all of it, like it was prime time entertainment), the honest-to-god racists, deadshits, and Pepe meme creators who populate 'The_Donald' subreddit, and, in all likelihood, Russia.

The prospects for that wall and billions of dollars to pay for it appear dim this year, Sen. Everyone knows it's not going to happen. "Coyotes [human traffickers] aim for cities" where migrants can disappear more readily into the US, he told the committee.

"There is no way I can give the committee an estimate of how much it will cost", Kelly said. Claire McCaskill both noted that the agents on the border say they would prefer fencing - so that they can see what's happening on the other side of the border. To justify the request for additional federal funds for southern border security, Kelly highlighted early successes, thus far.

However, the San Diego police and sheriff's office said their protection would extend to peaceful, law-abiding protesters, and made no mention of protecting construction workers.

The administration is pursuing funding and bids to build a border wall, but the project faces significant political, geographical, legal and financial challenges.

"Can you interpret a wall as being towers, fences, attempt to detecting tunnels - an electronic wall?"

Michael Evangelista-Ysasaga, chief executive of The Penna Group LLC, a general contractor in Fort Worth, Texas, said he has received about a dozen death threats since publicly expressing interest in bidding, including one from a woman who told him she hired a private investigator to trail him.

The Department of Homeland Security said it's revising its decision to separate parents and children caught crossing the Mexican border illegally.

Kelly responded by saying, "The wall is all of that".

Before joining FCW, Rockwell was Washington correspondent for Government Security News, where he covered all aspects of homeland security from IT to detection dogs and border security.

He cited "very, very good relationships with the Mexicans, both on their southern border where they stopped 160,000 illegal immigrants from Central America last year".

Rockwell received a Jesse H. Neal Award for his work covering telecommunications issues, and is a graduate of James Madison University.
