Having retired from DHS and "having dealt with border issues I can absolutely say that this has been done to death with the same results...none. The problem I have seen over my years is that DHS will rob Peter to pay Paul....in other words after 9/11 the northern border was beefed up, now they are stripping a lot of the assets and sending them to the southwest border, in essence turning their back on the northern border. The terror threat has been identified as being the northern border, particularly the northeast and northwest. This does not mean that the southern border is not a threat it is just as important, both borders need equal attention! How many more times are they going to jump through their collective butts over the southwest border? The southwest border has been a hot topic for many many years, it's time to look at the borders of the United States collectively.
