Many on the "pro illegal immigration" side of the debate about illegal immigration are making a lot of a video of two young ladies climbing a border fence in a mere 18 seconds--apparently this demonstrates how easy it is to sneak into the country.
Fair enough, but let's make it truly representative for those trying to get into the country. Instead of a cool winter day, it's 110 in the shade in July, you've walked 20 miles to get to the border (your whole body is soaked with sweat), and you've got a 25 pound backpack and a baby to get across the fence. Oh--and you don't get to call it good simply by touching the top bar. You've got to get over without hurting yourself or your baby, and you've got to keep your backpack with you--or else you must might die from thirst in the next 20 miles before you get to town.
I'm guessing those young ladies might not have done so well had they attempted what illegal immigrants actually tend to do to get into our country, to put it mildly.
