Defeating the stupid "Pelosi is a hypocrite who has a wall around her own house" - type argument

Here's a facebook exchange between myself and a trumpian sister (who has a small farm in the Orlando area).

sis: I say BUILD THE WALL.

me: I've got a question for you: why don't you build a wall around your own place so nobody can get in? Too expensive? The investment is too high compared to the risk of terrorism and invasion? It wouldn't work, anyway? It wouldn't look so good?

sis: I have a fence around my yard and also have 3 large dogs. I do my best to protect what I have. We have enough criminals living here without getting more.

me: a STUPID expensive wall won't keep out criminals, that's why you won't build it. You say you do your best to protect what you have? Well, if that doesn't include a wall that's NOT doing your best, is it? Isn't that the stupid Republican argument?

(And, by the way, her 3 large dogs are pussycats who welcome strangers, not frighten them. LOL)

1. I have a six foot high wood slat barrier with knotholes to see through

I also have a friendly K-9 unit who I don't pay as border patrol. The K-9 unit has excellent sonar, chemical sensing and visual surveillance capabilities. Immigrants who attempt to enter through the port of entry will have to play with the K-9 unit before being admitted to the yard.

I think this could work for the southern border.

2. I would remind her

that the vast majority of crime is committed by legal Americans, not by immigrants, in fact, studies have shown that immigrants commit very few crimes compared to native born Americans.

4. She also doesn't have air and sea port access, armed guards

surveillance drones, mobile patrols, ground detection monitors, security cameras, high strength lighting or inspection stations to secure her perimeter.

Most people who install solid wall barriers around their homes do it for privacy. It's also a visable symbol of wealth, power and status. Otherwise, a good chain link fence and a locked gates will deter most burglars if personal security is a must have.
