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.
Illegal immigrants evidently have had the ability to leach off of the American government, due to Obamacare. Illegal immigration is without a doubt one of the most attention needing problems the United States faces. The adversity devised from the jobs that illegal immigrants have apprehended from US citizens is formidable. President Trump has promised that he will reform the immigration laws and following his presidential campaign promise, building a large wall that separates Mexico and The United States. Building the wall reassures the population that we are indeed safe, we are a powerful country and there is no free ride in the land of hope and possibility.
In America, our great nation is facing an immigration problem. As of 2014 there was an estimate of twelve million illegal citizens in the United States (Cairco.org). There is an average of 700,000 illegal citizens who enter every year (Cairco.org). Immigration is important to the prosperity of our country. However, the government needs to take the proper steps to ensure that each immigrant enters legally.
Not all agree that the solution lies on enforcement, or in this case in “Building a wall,’ yet rather looking at the bigger picture. To consider all aspects that make up America, the great melting pot is it and it’s fundamentals embedded. Besides the entrance of many illegal immigrants each year, there's a number of citizens born in the U.S under illegal immigrants or temporary visitors. These babies are automatically granted birthright citizenship, and are openly consider U.S. citizens, whether their parents are legal or not. The general public and economical factors, have noted it as a constitutional flaw, affecting americans.
Illegal immigration has been around ever since borders were created to divide the world. The reasons for illegal immigration, stretch from escaping unstable governments, seeking job opportunities, and making money. In the United States, most of the current illegal immigration comes from Mexico and Latin America because of poverty and the lack of jobs (Wilson, Armstrong). The United States provides many cheap labor positions in construction and farming where business owners are looking for immediate workers that will get the job done. Unfortunately, illegal immigrants cost the U.S. government around $11.4 billion to $20.2 billion each year due to the use of America’s goods without paying all their taxes (Amadeo).
“The wall of Jericho” in America After thinking for a while about what is happening in America, I came to a decision to express my opinion in words. I will keep it short, ridiculous and wonderful to exploit my thoughts fully. Before he became the president of the United States of America, Donald Trump promised the Americans that he will build a wall on the US-Mexico border. He related Mexicans to drug smuggling, raping among other crimes and the wall will be the only solution since it will reduce their flow to America.
United States can start off by building a wall to stop all illegal immigrants from passing through. Although it would cost billions, only one third of the U.S Mexico is bordered or fenced off. By using Border Line patrol agents would cost much more as time goes on. So why no build a wall. The wall can last much longer and is sufficient enough to block out any immigrants from passing though.
Throughout the 20th and 21st century, there has been a debate in the United States about whether there should be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. At this time, there is a border wall between the states of; Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Northern Mexico. The main purpose behind having a border fence is to stop illegal immigrants, criminals, and terrorist from coming into the United States. Currently, in the United States, there are approximately an influx 11 million unauthorized immigrants.
In this year’s hotly contested US presidential campaign, Mexican immigrants are being painted as mooches spilling over our southern border. According to one candidate, they are such a problem that a massive concrete wall must be erected to keep them out. Reality is much different. Indeed, the inflow of Mexican immigrants today is a small fraction of what it once was, off nearly 90 percent from its peak in the year 2000. Net migration from Mexico is actually negative, regardless all the bloviating about in campaign speeches.
A border wall would be necessary for specific reasons, such as drug control. Debate.org believes that a border wall will prevent drugs. Factcheck.org believes that a border wall will stop illegal substances from coming into this country. Lastly, blvdcenters.org believes that a wall will keep the drugs out. Nevertheless, a border wall would be a good resolution because it would keep the illegal substances and their smugglers out of what the people of America call home.
Many immigrants from mexico come here by plane. The wall would have to go through mountains, villages, and many other obstacles. On top of all of that he would like Mexico to pay for the costs of the wall. He hasn’t given much detail on how he plans to do that. Second, deporting the illegal immigrants.
Deporting back these immigrants will cost a lot of money. Donald Trump wants to build a long wall between the United States and Mexico. According to Reuters, a website on the internet, the estimated cost of the wall they are helping the US economy will be up to 21 million dollars. According to the U.S Government debt, the US is already in depth trillions of dollars in depth. It would be pointless too waste that amount of money into this deportation plan.
This scenario is what people hope will be reality if the wall is built all along the southern border. It will create a world where illegal immigrants will have a harder time coming into the United States and disturbing how many Americans live. This wall between the United States and Mexico has led to many arguments on either side. With the United States 2016 Presidential Campaign currently going on and Donald Trump saying that he wants to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, border walls are becoming a popular discussion
