My opponent forfeited. I cannot say anything else. All I will say is that my opponent has the burden of proof and he has to prove that a wall can be built and will work

@Rockytop

In addition to clarify, I think your set up is quite clear. Pro, I would advise that you follow con's structure as that is what you agree on by accepting the debate.

Why? The maker of the debate decides the rules, If you don't like it, Don't join. Also, Even though I don't agree pro, I think discussing this issue in parts makes this debate more objective.
