Walls work on the southern US boarder where they are in place. I went for a look myself today from south end of Brownsville, TX where some new homes are being built. To the first crossing off RT281 where agriculture and commerce cross the boarder.
On the East Texas end along the Rio Grand River farming continues between the boarder wall on the river proper. A smart compromise between land owners and Government. A tall berm with a dirt road on top provides easy east/west travel for Farmer and Boarder Patrol alike.
There are strong gates electronically monitored and electrically operated providing easy access for both. For security I did not include pictures of the gates themselves.
At the boarder crossing I observed that commerce was going in one direction only during my visit. South.
Ending my short tour I was happy to see this sign...
