So, you want to build a wall...

When you’ve finished building your 20 foot by 2000 mile “fence” along the Mexico border and you start inspecting every vehicle for contraband (“drugs”) and immigrants (without “papers”) - will industry appreciate the slow-down of the movement of produce and products from Mexico that are supposed to be on the shelves for sale here in the US of A? Or will you just assume that “certain vehicles” are OK to pass on through without inspection? On your drive back home from the family vacation in Mazatlán as you watch the fruits and vegetables spoiling in the overheated truck-in-the-long-line at the border, you may decide that a blockade is a terrible mistake.
