Ex Africa semper aliquid novi, or something like that. Our border with Zimbabwe is very porous and that has allowed millions of people from that destroyed country enter ours. Sometimes however, nature plays its part. The Rio Grande could be stocked up with African Border Guards and a fortune would be saved in bricks.

The only time we had armed guards on a Kenya safari was by the river for hippos. I was more scared of the grinning 17 year old soldier fingering the trigger on his AK and flagging everyone in sight.

IIRC the lions in Kruger National Park on the border have developed a taste for refugees. Tough business that.

The Rio Grande does not have enough water for them to hide and wait for a border jumper.
