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 am not against the idea of a wall but I believe a wall will slow down a the amount of illegal immigrants crossing our border but I do not believe it will completely stop them from coming over. I believe Mexico should not pay for the wall because Mexico has their own problems going on their country they have to attended to that are far worse then our own problems
Yes. I think there should be a wall, lots of immigrants drugs, and other bad stuff is being dragged across the borders. And I think Mexico should help/ pay for about half of it since they cannot keep there own chaos in their borders so we are sharing it. It's a disease, and I know people feel empathy for the immigrants but they steal jobs from american people.
Yes. In addition, increase the number of border patrol agents, or supplement their numbers with the American military, specifically, the military police. Additional support personnel should come from the infantry divisions within the Army and Marines who would be supported by existing military supply, maintanence, and command chains. It would then be necessary to delineate the military's role such that it does not conflict with, or violate the 2005 revision of The Insurrection Act.
There should be a boarder/wall that determines where one country ends/begins, but we should focus more on the problems that are being faced with people living in the border (drug cartel, sex trafficking of minors, etc) then spend too much money on a wall as a form of "symbolism".

Yes, there should be some form of barrier but withdraw troops from Middle East and put them on the border instead. And make the legal immigration process easier by providing work visas to cut down illegal immigration.
To be honest, sure a wall can block people specifically the drug dealers but other than that I think the wall is useless and is just a waste of money. People will end up climbing over it anyway. And just the immigration system itself is messed up with how long it gets to a visa or finalizing paper work just to become a citizen, and this goes for pretty much every country. I think an open border system should be adopted and regulation of people coming in and out of the country should be regulated.
No because the united states is nothing but foreigners and therefore if they arent allowing people in they shouldn't allow people out how unfair of those in right but look at those who are out the united states is an organization making trillions and is unacceptable
Allow people who need to come to the U.S. but do not allow others who do not need to cross the border. If the people who were allowed and needed to come to the U.S. without legal paperwork, then once their needs (such as medical help) are met, they go back the way they came.
