CAMPO, CA - OCTOBER 08: A U.S. flag put up by activists who oppose illegal immigration flies near the US-Mexico border fence in an area where they search for border crossers October 8, 2006 near Campo, California. The activists want the fence expanded into a fully-lit double-fenced barrier between the US (R) and Mexico. US Fish and Wildlife Service wardens and environmentalists warn that a proposed plan by US lawmakers to construct 700 miles of double fencing along the 2,000-mile US-Mexico border, in an attempt to wall-out illegal immigrants, would also harm rare wildlife. Wildlife experts say cactus-pollinating insects would fly around fence lights, birds that migrate by starlight in the desert wilderness would be confused, and large mammals such as jaguars, Mexican wolves, Sonoran pronghorn antelope, and desert bighorn sheep would be blocked from migrating across the international border, from California to Texas.

President-elect Donald Trump has called for building a wall across the U.S.-Mexico Border. But how plausible is this plan? The documentary team Field of Vision capture the size of the task with a video titled “Best of Luck With the Wall,” illustrating the expansiveness of the border between the two nations.
The team painstakingly stitched together 200,000 satellite images from Google Maps into a just under seven-minute visual journey following our border with Mexico. Take a look at the video below and get a sense of how massive an undertaking the wall would be.
