By closing off the easier crossing points along the US-Mexican border, the wall is funneling emigrants into inhospitable deserts and mountains where they die by dehydration, hypothermia, and hyperthermia. This is the result of a cruel US Border Patrol policy of “prevention through deterrence.” The film The 800 Mile Wall documents this human tragedy and the costly ineffectiveness of these efforts “to secure the border.” billions of dollars are being spent in this futile effort to keep decent human beings out of the country. There’s got to be a more sane immigration policy. Someone should demand “Tear down that wall Mr. Obama!”
