What exactly make you think that drug cartels just walk their merchandise over the boarder.  No, they drive and ship it over just like they always have.  You really believe some mule is bringing over the boarder and smuggling illegally all the drugs  to the US on the back of some illegal immigrant.  That type of illegal drugs is a drop of sand compared to what gets sent here legally.  Lets not kid ourselves in believing that the amount of illegal immigrants coming illegally by building a tunnel or climbing a ladder is the main entry point of drugs in the US.  Drugs cartel have not relied on that method for decades.

-which requires people-

Drug cartels rely on -every- single possible entry point to get volume across.

Yeah they do but the majority of their product comes legally.  There has been and never will be any shortage of drugs in the US just like there will never be any shortage of guns in the US.  Both arrive here just as legal as your average toaster.  If you believe that the southern boarder is the main entry point for drugs in the US, well, I am guessing you do not live here.  This is not Australia and trying to take your experience there and apply it here just does not work.  These are intrinsic issues and drug cartels know the US like the back of their hands.  The cartel move drugs here legally because they have huge cash reserves and its much easier to just pay for legal transport then to rely on some mule to cross the boarder and get caught.  How often do you ever hear about some illegal immigrant on the southern boarder getting caught with drugs.  They catch a lot crossing over the boarder illegally you do know that.
