Another article on the border wall and its potential impact on The Bend. This in "conservative" National Review. Hopefully we're seeing a consensus develop that a wall may not be the right answer for every portion of the border.

Seriousness aside, maybe we could pay for it by taxing the wire trinkets and hiking poles sold along the trails near RGV?

The man who will build the wall talked to Congress.  He says what he intends to do.  He says he will do what the border patrol agents say is the best the place to build an actual wall .  If your too impatient to watch the entire 8 minutes, look at 4:35  and 6:30.
