Secret DHS Document Says Border Wall Best Way To Stop Illegal Immigration

Personally, I’d say the best way is to immediately deport any illegal caught crossing the border or caught in the U.S., no hearings, just “goodbye”. No thought of getting legal status, no jobs, not healthcare, money, housing, schooling, etc. Just put on a bus or plane and sent packing. Prosecute the heck out of anyone who hires an illegal or helps an illegal

Internal DHS Memo: Border Walls Are Most Effective Way to Stop Illegal Immigration

Border walls are the most effective tool for stopping illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border, an internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo concludes.

The memo, conducted in June 2017 for then-Acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, was obtained and reviewed by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) following a public records request.

According to IRLI officials, the internal memo examined 25 areas at the border and ultimately recommended the construction of a border wall in every area. Further, a border wall was found to be the most cost-effective tool for DHS to deter illegal immigration.

IRLI’s report states:

For every area of the Southwest border examined, the audit determined that a physical barrier was not only the best option for disrupting irregular migration, but also the most cost-effective, as compared to alternatives such as electronic sensors. [Emphasis added]

The memo directly contradicts President Joe Biden’s claims that border walls are a “waste of money” and “not a serious policy solution.”

Well, barring the ability to immediately deport any illegal, walls work great. We know this. It’s why the White House has a fence around it. Why military installations, intelligence agencies, and lawmaker homes have walls/fences. It’s why the taxpayers are spending a lot of money for a wall around Biden’s beach house.

Meanwhile in Sanctuary City Chicago

(ABC Chicago) A referendum on the city’s sanctuary city status was roundly defeated in the Chicago City Council Thursday.

After public comment, a majority of the City Council voted not to suspend the rules to allow the motion on the sanctuary city referendum to move forward.

While asylum seekers continue to come to Chicago from Texas, in a move seen by some as an effort to embarrass or overburden sanctuary cities like Chicago, the fight to let voters weigh in on the sanctuary policy was shut down.

During a special city council meeting to put a non-binding referendum on the ballot, the mayor and his allies used a procedural move to prevent a vote on the referendum itself.

The mayor is complaining about all the illegals shipped to SCC, as are many alderman and tons of citizens, yet, the city council refuses to let the citizens who they work for vote on the referendum. Wouldn’t this be what Democrats call an assault on Democracy?

  1. Professor Hale says:

    Another great way would be to enforce immigration laws and immediately expel all those found to be here illegally. Word will get around and many will self-expel.

    We could also use the existing asset forfeiture laws and apply it to all wages and property in the possession of illegals once they ae found. Since ill-gotten gains are forfeited under law, and just being here is illegal, ALL of their assets can be taken. Again, word will get around and they will mostly self-deport.

  2. MrLiberty says:

    Ending the welfare state would be another great move. But as far too many government-connected types profit (mostly as useless government bureaucrats managing the system), it will never happen.

    Professor Hale Trumps border wall deterred no one. The bollards can be cut through with cordless saws in less than 5 mins. You (and anyone else) can watch this being done on You Tube.
    Professor Hale can we count on YOU to work picking vegetables if all the migrants leave?

      Johnny-can we count on YOU to house any illegals that come your way?

      So what? I don’t recall anyone saying that only a wall would stop illegal immigration. A wall is part of an immigration system. Are you saying that walls don’t work?

    • Brother John says:

      There is no reason at all that the southern border of the USA cannot be the most fortified, well-defended, and deadliest frontier on the planet. It could easily be such that nothing larger than a small fox lives to cross it.

      What we lack is the political desire and will to see it happen.

      Thus, all of your objections to a wall are 100% TDS bullshit.

    I am saying walls don’t work. They can be sawed through or climbed over. That stupid floating barrier in the Rio Grande that Gov Abbott put up? it is 1/4 of one mile long. Jl must think THAT is going to work also.
    As for housing them ? That is something that my government is doing.
    jl can we count on you to both man the wall and to go to war on Hamas? Since your government isnt doing it.
    ohh and jl, looks like another record breaking week in USA oil production! another fail on The Dark Brandon’s War on energy ( which apparently only existed in the fever dreams of Teach and jl)
    The drop in USA gas prices (29 states less than 3$) can not be attributed to production increases(drill baby drill) as much as the decreased demand for gas in China as The Dark Brandon continues to trash their economy by reshoring American companies like Apple and restricting sales of all high power and mid power chips. And the machines that could build those chips.

    • Jl says:

      “That is something my government is doing….” What they should be doing is sending the illegals back across the border. Brandon must like illegals more than his own citizens
      Johnny-“I’m saying wall don’t work”. Sure they do, accompanied with the border patrol monitoring it. More Johnny-“can we count on you to go to war with Hamas?” Uh, the war is between Israel and Hamas.
      As far as the oil production, yes-we’re lucky Brandon is so inept in that department

    Teach: the best way is to immediately deport any illegal caught crossing the border or caught in the U.S., no hearings, just “goodbye”

    We have US law that protects refugees and asylum seekers…

    Asylum status is a form of protection available to people who:
    Meet the definition of refugee
    Are already in the United States
    Are seeking admission at a port of entry
    You may apply for asylum in the United States regardless of your country of origin or your current immigration status.

    The National Immigrant Justice Center joined the American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Northern California, and Center for Gender & Refugee Studies in filing an amended complaint in East Bay Sanctuary Covenant et al. v. Biden et al., challenging the Biden administration’s asylum ban which took effect in May 2023.

    What? The Biden administration restricted asylum requests??? We didn’t hear that on FOX.

    ALERT: Court Order on Circumvention of Lawful Pathways Final Rule
    On Aug. 3, 2023, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a stay of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California’s order in East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Biden, 18-cv-06810 (N.D. Cal.), vacating the Circumvention of Lawful Pathways (CLP) rule. At this time and while the stay remains in place, USCIS will continue to apply the CLP rule.

      And that’s a law which should be drastically amended or repealed.

    LOL should we remove the walls from prisons? Should we remove the walls from your house first and see how that works out? You can’t be that stupid really. What you’re trying to say in your pathetic partisan style is any wall built by Trump is no good any other wall is fine. Right?

    As a typical leftist your partisanship always overrules your common sense moron.

    I just finished viewing 30 minutes of the Muslim attack in Gaza last month I watched them raped women the murdered children the heads the little heads. And I can only think of how many times Elwood told us how wonderful his Muslim neighbor is and how he’d rather live next to him than us. And how elwood is always worried about that scary Christian nationalism that he’s afraid he’s gonna take over America. Even knowing full well that the Christians ran America for 300 years opposed if they wanted to do that they would have done it then. But the people he should be afraid of the people he should be worried about he thinks they’re just wonderful he’s a typical leftist moron. You should look at this video you really should.

    THIS Kevin McAleenan, LOL. Meaningless trump bullshit.

    Kevin McAleenan is an American attorney and government official who unlawfully served as the acting United States secretary of homeland security from April to November 2019. McAleenan served as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner from March 2018 to May 2019. During that time, he was a leading proponent of separating children from their parents as a means of deterring illegal entry into the United States.
