The exclusive geography of Greater Appalachia and the settlers’ opposition to oppression developed the identity of the region and its inhabitants, which emphasized personal honor and individual liberty. As shown on a resource map of Greater Appalachia, the topography of the region excluded the inhabitants, who were known as Borderlanders, from acquiring necessary resources, such as forests or fish. The Borderlands did not have many resources at hand; items such as timber or oil were more commonly found in the Deep South (Glencoe). Additionally, as mentioned by Colin Woodward in American Nations, “With no roads, trade was almost entirely by barter” (Woodward 104). Because of limited resources and roads, the geography of Greater Appalachia prevented the
People who are against immigration often believe that immigrants are putting a strain on the economy. They believe that people who are illegally staying in the United States are using the resources and benefits Americans have worked towards for nothing. People who believe that immigrants
Considering most modern studies like those mentioned above and even the Congressional Budget Office theorize that economic reform would have a positive effect on the US economy, the majority of economic reasons addressed previously against immigration reform are invalid. However, looking at political debates currently occurring, a startlingly large number of politicians use outdated or biased information to argue against immigration reform because of the impact they believe it may have on the economy. This can be dangerous because those “facts” spreads throughout the country, and then millions of people end up believing false
Our nation 's greatest and most obvious vulnerability remains our porous and unprotected southern land border. Yet every day, unknown numbers of human and drug smugglers, criminals and potential terrorists continue to illegally enter the United States through our border with Mexico. The exposure of our southern border demands that we take immediate action to implement the most effective enforcement mechanisms available. And while technology and manpower are an important part of this effort, the best and most effective method of preventing illegal foot and vehicle traffic from entering the United States is border security fencing.

Illegal Immigration Reform More than 11.4 million illegal immigrants currently reside in the United States that’s almost equivalent to how many people live in the entire state of Ohio. Most of these illegal immigrants are hardworking people that help the welfare of the economy and the have a high impact on the culture of the United States. The proposition is that Illegal Immigrants who have paid there Tax’s and have resided for more than 10 years, consecutively in the United States should be given a way to get a legal residency. This residency would give them benefits like a social security which would let them get a good job and a license and have basic human rights. Illegal immigrants deserve these rights because they create the most business,
Fences can only do so much; people are the ones who stop the illegal immigrants from coming in. Only 44% of the border is under watch. The other 56% of the border is slightly monitored. In order to keep the United States secure from illegal aliens, all of the border has to be under operational control. More troops from the national guard need to be called in and spread out across the border.

Trump made that can assure us that the wall will in fact prevent immigrants from entering the United States as well as keep immigrants from smuggling drugs into the United States? The border that was first build for the same purpose, to keep immigrants from bringing in illegal substances as well as themselves into the United States, is no use to the United States anymore despite the effort of the border to keep immigrants out it just ended up being a waste of money for the United States government as well as the American taxpayer. If the United States congress decides to agree upon this proposed, wall and do agree to pay for the immensely cost of the wall they are going to be very sadden by the results of the wall. No wall that has been built for the soul purpose to keep something out has had very much success. Here are a few of the most known ones that have tragically failed and serve no protection anymore to their fellow country/state.
One of America’s most controversial issues today is the border between the United States and Mexico. The big part of the issue is due to illegal immigration, which is when foreigners enter the U.S. without an entry or an immigrant visa. President Trump says he has found a solution, otherwise known as the “border wall,” but this will not stop people from wanting a better life. Of course I get why he and others would want to continue the process obviously to keep us safe from terrorists and other dangers of the world, but, to every pro there is a con. Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped.
