In 2015 U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump issued a proposal to build a wall along the Mexico-U.S. border. The wall would extend along the 1,900 mile border and would prevent illegal goods and people from entering the U.S. In 2013 the Government Accountability Office reported that the border patrol had intercepted 61% of individuals who had attempted to cross the border that year. Analysts say that building a wall along the entire border is impossible since it parts of it contain rocky, uneven terrain. Proponents argue that the wall will cut down on the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs into the U.S. Opponents argue that the wall is impossible to build and illegal immigration into the U.S. has declined significantly since the 2008 financial crisis.
Yes, but not to keep people out, solely for aesthetic pleasure.
Yes, there should be a high tech surveillance barrier but my reasoning is not because of immigration. A lot of sex trafficking happens along the border and it is a major issue that needs to be addressed.
This is very true some may say that wanting to build a wall or get better surveillance on the borders makes you racist, but that is not the case. Some people want better for the US. Wanting to keep out the drugs sex trafficking, guns and many other things. I'm saying that America doesn't have any of these things because we do. We smuggle things into Mexico and other countries and we don't get questioned because we are privileged, but those who are of colored or from other countries get questioned because they don't look as we do. Fair skin.
This question is too stupid to believe. It is geographically impossible to have a clear physical barrier along the entire southern border. Also, many land owners and communities would find themselves cut off from their own assets, whether it be rivers for water, local churchs, etc.
