Idea One- Secure the borders with popular support
It is time for some creative solutions to problems that appear to drag on without resolution.
SECURE OUR BORDERS:
First, build a wall stretching the entire border with Mexico. This would employ a lot of people for a good length of time.
The wall has enclaves every six feet or so and is wired for high speed internet. Install coin operated video game consoles and stools. The gaming revenue will fund the wall, provide eyes and ears for illegal crossing 24/7 and, if you legalize gambling, slot machines could be included for even more revenue.
The Wall would become a tourist destination, part Great Wall of China and part American ingenuity at work. Hotels and motels would spring up along the same route that the wall follows catering to the gamers and gamblers. Loan companies, lawyers and bail bond companies would also thrive.
For add “protection” we could even build a similar wall at the Canadian border.
