China's wall didn't work. Hadrian's wall didn't work. The Berlin wall didn't work.
If enemies want to invade, they'll swarm over your wall, or punch holes in it. If people need to migrate, they'll swim around it or fly over it, or die on it. If people want badly enough to escape, they'll dig under it, climb over it or die on it.

Unfortunately for migrating wildlife, they mostly just die.

But, hey, something has to be seen to be done, however ineffective. Isn't that why you keep starting unwinnable wars against nations, some of whose citizens or guests might have done something to you or at least thought about doing something to you?

In all cases, some contractors make out like bandits - and isn't that what capitalism is all about?
