Maybe it's only a fence in a small section, I suppose? But not doing a stellar job it would appear. I mean, if people actually PREFER to cross where there is a fence... LOL! Why would a longer fence be different? I always thought the US boder with Mexico was something like this border:
You are correct. In heavily populated areas right along the border, you will often find a fence, such as in San Diego. However, out in Middle-of-Nowhere, New Mexico and Arizona there is no fence.
This is why I just laugh to myself when people talk about how the new proposed fence will "only" be 700 miles even though the US/Mexico border is 2,000.
A) The Rio Grande is a natural border along the entire Texas-Mexico border. Not much need to put a fence there.
B) Fences (though crude) are already built in some places along the border
