is guarding the border the best way to control illegal immigration

as has been shown greatly over the years, a border fence has not been able to stop many people from crossing the border. there are always ways for determined people to get around it, if you build a 15 foot wall to try to stop people from getting through, someone can always bring a 16 foot ladder. fences can also be cut through, demolished, penetrated, and even tunneled under as has been proven by many drug cartels. fences would only be able to truly stop immigration if every foot was manned by l...

Illegal immigration is bad

Illegal immigrants are detrimental to our society because they hurt our economy and take jobs. They cost the federal government a lot of money each year. They also take jobs away from American workers. Because of their sheer numbers illegal immigrants put a great strain on the American economy. It costs the government billions of dollars a year to house these illegal immigrants, and because they don't pay taxes we never get a single cent of that money returned to our government. They also cos...

The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration

The subject of this post is: The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration. I, the instigator, am taking the con side of this discussion. That is, I will be arguing against the notion that "The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration." This debate is open to any challenger to accept the "Pro" side of the debate, upon whose shoulders rests the burden of proof to establish that the U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal...

Immigration Should Be Illegal in the United States

Immigration can cause international problems. In this process, countries get upset with the decreasing of their population. Also, the United States can not support the people, especially with the economy so bad they just can not seem to get a job. Then, they are homeless and starve. They cause more robberies and people to get mugged for survival. Immigration can again cause international problems, which can lead to terrorists attacks, such as September 9, 2001. This is a problem leading to the e...

The U.S. should build a fence on its southern border in order to reduce illegal immigration.

I think a border fence would be excellent in keeping illegals out of the U.S. There are already several cities in the U.S. where fences are put up (San Diego, Nogales, El Paso.) All have reduced illegal immigration. The problem is we don't have enough Border Patrol and a fence on the southern border would help immensely. Here are my reasons: 1. The fence will be hard to penetrate. This is a main controversy of the...anti-border fence people. What good is 6-foot high chicken wire? Well first,...
