Not only is President Donald Trump's proposed "wall" between Mexico and the U.S. a gigantic waste of time and money, it will take years to complete and accomplish very little.
Consider the half-mile project slated for the Baltimore Beltway in the Liberty Road area, which will take about four years to complete. Then contrast that with a 1,200-mile border wall, which will require extensive surveys, geological studies and eminent domain procedures.
It's an idiotic idea that will take longer to complete than the current administration will be in office.
The president's first executive order seems to have moved funds from Homeland Security to begin the wall project. But does anyone think that illegal border crossings are the biggest threat to our country?
