The newsweek article is pretty solid. I believe the wall will accomplish the same thing that the TSA does; essentially nothing but makes people feel safer, which is certainly a dangerous mindset to be instilling in our population.

Because I don’t respect therapy, Because I’m a scientist. Because I invent, transform and destroy for a living and when I don’t like something about the world, I change it. And I don’t think going to a rented office in a strip mall to listen to an agent of averageness explain which words mean which feelings has ever helped anyone do anything. I think it’s helped a lot of people get comfortable and stop panicking, which is a state of mind [burp] we value in the animals we eat, but not something I want for myself. I’m not a cow. I’m a pickle – when I feel like it. So… you asked.

Rick and Morty, emphasis mine.

Exactly, not to mention a beefy handout to whatever Israeli company is manufacturing the wall. It's the sort of contract that probably just made someone somewhere in to a billionaire.
