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, and we pay for it, load it up with surveillance too. Stop letting people in our country until we can get a grip on homelessness and our national debt. We should be taking care of Americans first and foremost. We'll never be able to fix world population increases of 80 million/year and we have to accept this. America is a great place as long as we don't dilute our financial resources from the poor and middle classes.
Yes, but more so as a tool for tourism to generate income and provide jobs. For instance China's Great Wall in 2004 generated $67.7 billion in tourism. If America builds a wall to the same degree people will show up to see it. It's the same concept as the Grand Canyon or Area-51. People are dumb. Build it - they will come.
Yes, there are unfinished parts of a border wall and we must protect our citizens from criminals and drung traffickers. A border wall will help the U.S border patrol and every immigrant should come legally and go through the process.
I think they should just fix the ones that need it and a bit amount of money where there's more population that people cross like if there's a place where illegals like to use in specific upgrade the fence or wall. I don't agree with trumps wall because its a lot of money and that would most likely put us more in debt also because Mexico will not pay for it.
