Cheese slicer Wire: How to Secure the Border

  • September 25, 2021

Cheeses can be used as tools for security.

The wire mesh that runs around the fence can be covered with bars or wire mesh to keep it from getting into unauthorized hands. 

The fence also has barbed wires that can be cut with scissors to secure it to the building, or to allow for a quick exit. 

While fencing the border isn’t ideal, it can help keep people out of the U.S. if you have to go through it.

If the fence is in good condition, it’s a great deterrent to criminals and terrorists, and even the most well-intentioned government employee can have their eyes peeled for suspicious behavior. 

In fact, if you want to get a better idea of what a fence looks like in action, check out these images. 

You can also see a video of fencing fencing in action from the Border Patrol.

That is roughly $50 billion less than it spent on border fences in the same year, but it was still $200 billion more than the previous record set in 2020, the Office of Management and Budget noted.

The Border Patrol has been criticized for not adequately securing the border, and many of its agents are also subject to civil lawsuits.
