It'll bankrupt the US government, causing our economy to crash, and then since we'll be even worse off than the countries from which people immigrate, they won't want to come here anymore.

Bankrupt the US government? If 10 billion would bankrupt us then our economy isn't doing as hot as people are trying to say it is. Please enlighten me how this will bankrupt the US government.

Also, are you aware of how much we currently spend on the border (maintaining the fence that's there currently?).

Not to mention all the waste that we have in our government that if reduced could substantially free up funds.

We can go into 10 trillion more in debt easily. That's a really fancy wall!

Actually doing a little quick math, you could possibly build the wall using only one dollar bills and still not go over a trillion dollars in expenditures.

I think she was just exaggerating, but yea. It would not break the bank at all. Just could be much better used, that's all.

Well, it would be the same amount of wasted money either way.

It won't work. They'll just take boats to Canada and then sneak in from there.
Science in a nutshell:
"Facts are neither true nor false. They simply are."
"All scientific knowledge is provisional. Even facts are provisional."
"We can be absolutely certain that we have a moon, we can be absolutely certain that water is made out of H2O, and we can be absolutely certain that the Earth is a sphere!"
"Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty -- some most unsure, some nearly sure, none absolutely certain."

They can pay for the privilege of walking atop the ramparts, just like China's wall.

Now if we can be smart like China, we can use the wall to fuel a 500 billion dollar tourist industry.

Except their wall is a tourist site because it is a) more than a thousand years old, b) it's a world heritage site, c) It ranks alongside Machu Pichu and the Pyramids of Giza as a wonder of the world.
Our wall will rank alongside the Israeli Separation Wall and the Berlin wall as travesties and crimes against humanity.

Canada does not have better wages. America has the highest disposable income in the developed world. And life expectancy means absolutely nothing. You aren't automatically going to live 3 more years in Canada.

1) average wages are higher, and while the US has the highest disposable income, our massive income inequality really skews this.
2) Average life expectancy implies quality healthcare services which are readily available, cleaner environment, lower rate of violent crime, etc.

Terrible idea, seeing as we are talking about a crime against humanity here, spicing that up usually means genocide.
