I have always thought from the beginning that the wall was symbolic and Trump never thought he would get the whole thing the whole distance but as a symbol it meant being tougher of border security and that is needed especially if we get close to or actually get a deal on Dreamers and immigration where more illegals will try to get in here as we see with the caravans.
It is definitely more of a symbolism (something that can be "seen") than it actually does much on actual border security. In another word, nothing more than a vanity project, typical of Drumpf wanting to show how he "accomplish" things (i.e. claim that he's "winning").
BTW, claiming asylum at the border is anything BUT illegal. It's one of the multiple method to legally immigrate into US, doesn't mean it has to be granted.
