Anyone with sense about them will totally get the concept of gates and walls when it comes to just about every place you can think of.
Gates, in effect are a lock that covers a large distance. Shoot, everyone uses locks on their doors…on their house, their car, their locker.
When I was in the military the only thing between my movie collection and portable DVD player was a padlock on the outside of my locker and then a another lock inside a special compartment I had made just for my most valuable stuff.
The point is, we have locks and walls for things we want to protect. Why wouldn’t we have them across the border?
That being said, I am all in favor of people practicing what they preach as much as possible. Barack Obama has a wall around his house, so why doesn’t he want a wall at a very dangerous border?

President Trump has been cooped up in the White House throughout the Christmas holiday, even though first lady Melania and many of his kids retreated to the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to enjoy some R&R in the sun. Since it’s too cold and rainy to play golf in D.C., the president has opted for his second-favorite pastime: Trolling Twitter.
On Sunday, Trump pointed out that former President Barack Obama and his wife have built a mighty wall around their Washington, D.C., home for protection, and suggested that maybe America just needs a “slightly larger version.”
“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!,” he wrote on Twitter.

The Obamas bought the 8,200-square-foot house for $8 million in 2017 (what, you thought they were going to go “home” to Chicago? Not a chance!).
Democrats shut down Congress just before the holidays after the GOP-controlled House approved a spending bill that included $5.7 billion for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, which Trump touted throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
