Jack Adler covered this subject very well but there is more to it.
We have "do-gooders" putting water in the desert for the illegal people crossing the border. We have people who can't swim and they drown in the canals entering the United States illegally, so we are going to put ropes across the canals to help them get into the country illegally.
The Imperial Irrigation District is going to pay for this. IID gets its money from you and I, so you and I are going to pay for this idiotic idea, which is nearing $250,000.
Now the federal government, with your money, has built a solid iron wall along miles of the border. This wall is about 16 feet high and when people illegally enter our country by jumping from the wall they are getting hurt. There are numerous cases of broken ankles and broken legs and even a serious concussion case. Maybe we should put a door in the wall every 100 feet or so to help these illegal people get in to the country easier.
