But my view is that you need a system at the border. You need some fencing but you need technology. You need boots on the ground.

My parents had been involved in the labor movement; if we'd grown up in the city, we would have been red-diaper babies.
It can be dismaying, all the same, for a novelist to compare the slowness of the writing with the speed of the reading. Novels are read in a matter of days, even hours. A writer may labor for weeks over a particular passage that will have its effect on a reader for an instant - and that effect may be subliminal or barely noticed.
