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.
I truly think that no matter what is there whether there is a wall there or people we will get illegal immigrants in the US. I think that the US shouldn't build a huge costly wall to keep people out but I think that there needs to be more effort in monitoring who and what comes in and out both ways.
When it comes to the wall, I can see why it would be needed. It's because people bring drugs, families are trying to come over to America, etc. I know what it's like trying to leave a country in order to start to new life (immigrant). But I think they should increase the military presence in that area and not have them be so rough depending on the situation.
They should be able to help the people in need. There are reasons people are trying to cross the border but they should be able to prove their intentions. If we help people we don't need the walls but security should be increased to prevent drug and sex trafficking.
To me It's a yes and no, because it would keep us safe but the Mexican's should not pay for it. may I remind someone that mexico isn't the only place that has terrorist's, and created terrorist's, and you know that america, MY HOME COUNTRY also has and built terrorist's
