And despite the huge size, the US-Mexican border is one of the most diligently patrolled in the world. Though, when asked what would make their jobs easier, border patrol agents list things like drones, cameras, and personnel above walls that would be significantly more expensive and less effective. I agree, don't make ignorant statements unless you know the actual facts.
2) I think Trump suggested the wall where there aren't natural barriers. Many of the places you listed have several.
Walls have worked/not worked throughout history. There are countless examples on both sides. The fact is one side in American politics encourages illegal immigration while another does not. If you agree with immigrants being in America illegally, that is your opinion. In fact, it's not even that unpopular of one. That is fine.
But if you don't, the suggestion of a wall between the USA and Mexico (a divide which Mexico has at least six populated urban areas) is not unheard of nor unreasonable. The fact that we're having this conversation in a quiz which cites Mexico as having 170,000 armed conflict fatalities is a pretty good indicator of that.
The most famous case is probably Israel, where the controversial "separation barrier" with the Palestinian Territories reduced suicide bombings from killing hundreds of Israelis a year to almost none at all.
I'm in the f'ing Army too.
The pandemic is serious and a lot of people are going to die because of it. Organized crime may kill more people, but a virus kills indiscriminately.
On the other hand I worked there for 2 years and I think in that time I may have seen ONE patient come in who was the victim of organized crime? Maybe two?
