I agree on how dangerous it can be to have people in from another country, who maybe have some criminal records. But what if some of those people are just looking for a new home and start a new life, some people are willing to risk their life, to start a new life or send their children to have a better future. I believe that is very brave but this wall in which is separating Mexico and US is a bad idea and should be taken out because some people deserve to start new. A reason why I believe that there should not be a border fence is because I think that people should be let free so they can go anywhere but without taking advantage. Also that there is many people who want to get a job and be successful. It"s incredible that many kids come to the US to study and become professional and it's difficult how in mexico it's hard, and some can't go to school, so in the US they have more opportunities and better possibility at being successful.

I accept the debate.

We need to keep the US safe and by doing so a great idea would be a US/ Mexican border. Many people who are looking for a new home and a new place to live do it illegally, if we put up a border with guards and security we would ensure no illegals are regularly crossing, if we put up a border we could also put up a system that allows the Mexicans to come on a refugee or immigrants status, in other words create a legal way using the border.

You said people deserve to start new, in this case they can start new in a different country that is not as strict as America or they can once again apply for a refugee status, this is going on legally in parts of Canada.

People do want to be let free but giving them the opportunity to free roam is when they will take advantage of the system, they will be encouraging others to do the same and will not be setting a very good example for other Mexicans.

Your biggest issue (Con) with the wall is that they will not be allowed into the United States, this is not the case they will very well be able to cross over any time for trips and short term stays and with this border wall we can help them legally and safely cross into the US.

I can't believe you simply ran from the debate, his argument is full of flaws. Not to mention the numerous amounts of historical evidence where walls between countries are horrible for diplomatic relations.
