Build the Hedge

Instead of a wall, whether concrete or steel, why doesn’t Trump build a nice hedge?

Just think what it would do for local biodiversity, in addition to which it would look lovely. It’d be a little slice of Dorset in the southern United States. And when the bushes are in fruit, people living on both sides will be able to pick blackberries and make jam.

Obviously some would suggest that, in terms of security, it would be lacking compared to an actual wall, but to those people I would say that they clearly haven’t tried to climb through a fully mature hedge.

Impossible, and you’re guaranteed to snag your clothes, which no one wants.
