Can I just walk into Mexico or any other country in the world with mo identification and set up shop to live? No I will be immediately jailed and deported. Why do our politicians act like we are the only country where the 1 border should not matter. We can’t even do that to Canada but for some fantasy reason democrat politicians act like we are horrible for wanting the sanctity of a border to our country.
Because the whole idea behind America is that of freedom and liberty. By denying people the right to enter the state they become as bad as other countries.
While it's true that America stands for freedom and liberty, we must remember that every country has a right to control its borders and ensure the safety of its citizens. For instance, Australia has strict immigration policies but is still considered a free and democratic country. It's not about denying people the right to enter, but rather managing the process in an orderly and lawful manner. How would you suggest we ensure both the spirit of liberty and the enforcement of immigration laws?
They see immigrants as a threat put with proper background checks and if the have never been deported or had any problems with the law they should be let it. Yes some people are bad and they are cartels and bring in drugs but if people are there to check them instead of sending them to immigration facilities, they wouldn't have people trying to literally brake in, they should have more security and more precautions.
In 2019 alone, over 850,000 people were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border. Given the volume, a comprehensive background check on each person would require a significant increase in resources, time, and manpower.
Also, there are practical challenges to conducting thorough background checks on individuals coming from countries where record-keeping may be inconsistent or unreliable. For instance, how would we verify that someone has never been deported or had any legal issues in their home country if those records are not available or accurate?
Moreover, we must consider the potential impa… Read more
Identification should be needed, if you do not use identification how would they know you're not an escaped convict or something? If you don't have something to hide, there should be no reason for not using an identification unless you do not have one and there should be no need for deportation or jail time.
5 million illegal entries in less than three years that we know of. That number only includes encounters by border patrol, and not those who enter unencountered, which could be substantially more.
I agree we have a major issue at the border. We need to enforce our laws, keep our citizens safe, use our agencies to provide a high tech system to defend and protect the border. Once that is done, we can create a path for citizenship for illegals in good standing
We should stop illegal immigrants from entering our country. That's how another 9/11 can happen. But NOOO, our bull**** president Biden welcomes all into the US.
Actually, Biden has continued, and even increased, the construction of Trump's border wall, so I'm not sure why you're under the impression that Biden is pro-immigration. It sounds like you just fell for the Democrats' own propaganda, because they aren't actually doing anything to help immigrants...
"The U.S. Border Patrol arrested at least 91,000 migrants who crossed as part of a family group in August, exceeding the prior one-month record of 84,486 set in May 2019, during the Trump administration. Families were the single largest demographic group crossing the border in August, surpassing single adults for the first time since Biden took office.
Overall, the data show, border apprehensions have risen more than 30 percent for two consecutive months, after falling sharply in May and June as the Biden administration rolled out new restrictions and entry opportunities. The Border Patrol made more than 177,000 arrests along the Mexico border in August, up from 132,652 in July and 99,539 in June."
Allowing illegals, drugs, predators, rapists, murderers and other criminals, illicit substances and firearms to cross our border is wrong. Building a wall won’t completely solve this issue, but would definitely slow down the process.
If we dont control the amount of illegal immigrants coming into our country, the american people will begin to struggle for things such as jobs, homes, food, and everything needed for the good American people.
The US is overrun by illegal immigrants and there is no central point of entry where people can be detained and processed. There is a legal way to enter the country and all who wish to enter should apply.
You need a wall to make a port of entry, without a port of entry things like human trafficking and drug cartels can get through without anyone being able to check out what these people may be bringing in. Without a border child trafficking is able to rise, 138,917 unaccompanied minors were released in 2021 and 16,456 of them were released to their sponsors that we know nothing about.
The border wall will prevent the illegal immigrants from coming into the country. The president is currently giving out our tax money to those immigrants for health insurance and housing when that money should be going to better things like the military.
Most immigrants that come over are people who are willing to do any kind of work, including work that most American citizens do not want to do. Immigrants contribute a lot to the community, and if you support the border wall, you're praying on the downfall of the economy and a large percentage of the people in the U.S..
We need the wall because if Mexicans and other people from that area break into the great United States of America, we will not only lose our identity, but crime and diversity will change drastically in America.
If there is no wall it is making the way for criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists to walk right into America. They could take American jobs and be the ones receiving the benefits of American tax payers that Americans want going to provide for America's citizens.
by not having the border wall, you are allowing all of these drugs and illegal people come into the United states and use our resources and get taken care of by the government. it isn't supposed to be easy because its not a small deal. if they want to come to the U.S then do it legally and we are all good but till then stay in mexico.
No other country allows illegals to come into to their country and stay. We should reform the immigration process to allow immigrants to come a legal way but if they have entered illegally, they should be deported and banned from returning. The open boarders allow criminals, drugs, and human trafficking. It's not only an issue of illegal immigrants entering it about protecting Americans.
