An Eco-Wall?

Prickly Cacti

There has been a lot of talk about building a wall along the border recently.

Congress says, "we're building a wall".

Texas says, "we don't need a wall".

The Governor says, "we need a virtual wall".

Non-border states are crying, "we need a wall!".

Mexico says, "if you build a wall, we'll be offended".

The Texas Border Coalition says, "hell no we don't need a wall".

I was just reading The Mex Files and they say, "what about an eco-wall?"

It kind of makes sense. Instead of building a wall of bricks and mortar (Congress is collectively and individually stupid if they think a chain link fence will do the job), why not make a biological wall? If you line the border with cactus and other nasty vegetation, it would go a long way towards slowing down all but the most determined individuals.
