Sure, it can be sawed through, but it takes a long time and a lot of muscle. No barrier is 100% impenetrable, but they discourage the vast majority of wannabe trespassers, which is why we find barriers virtually everywhere people are restricted from going.

I heard recently about a laser wall that would cost a fraction of the price of a solid wall, and yet, it would identify movement far away from the actual border, giving agents a good shot at intercepting illegals. That might be the way to go.

Yep.  I think most Dems are in favor of a more technological solution.

Many things like this make more sense than the wall Trump is proposing. 
absolutely nothing will be found.

Do you expect to get something reasonably objective from her? No. Of course not.

Of course it can be sawed through.  A solid concrete wall can be sawed through as well, and not every foot of barrier can be policed.  It can also be tunneled under or climbed over.

Of the walls and barriers that already exist on the Mexican border, how many have been sawed through?
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Why don’t you find out and let us know?

I would expect her to post something that supports her side of the argument.

Why? Have you ever seen her make a coherent argument?

I haven't.

No, sorry!  YOU were the one making the claim that hey have already been sawed through. Now the burden of proof is on you!

I am not going to do your homework for you. Nice try at weaseling out, though.

You’re an idiot.  I said no such thing.

You really need to learn to comprehend.  I said they can be, not that they had been.
