Is a border wall with Mexico good?

bond_jamesbond101

The wall is an expensive and ineffective solution the illegal immigrant problem at the southern border that also brings environmental rights issues to people who live on both sides of the border. If built Trumps wall would cost the United States about $31.2 billion. Furthermore the United States already has a border fence that does the same job that a border wall would do. There"s no significant benefit to building a wall, and a wall would have the same drawbacks that the current fence has. Dete...

EXOPrimal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2AVCrbGwnENow I had another debate on DebatingIsland, but I did not see much things. (I may cancel or put this debate up again if no one accepts) This debate is about the U.S Involvement in the war. The Vietnam War was not worth engaging in. 58,000 killed, all the bombings, and we still failed in the objective to prevent communism from taking over the country.

This House Would deny tax-exempt status to religios-institutions failing to appoint women equally.

aryan_ind
Arganger

On this side of the house, we believe firmly in the need to promote equality in our society. This is something we believe to a level where we are willing to take the most hard-line stance to correct the most prominent of the inequalities across the globe: gender inequality. Policy: All religious institutions failing to provide equal opportunity for appointment to women as men will be liable to pay special taxes, that will be higher than normal taxes. This would disincentivese the inequality...
