I say that America should close its borders because we have to many illegal immigrants coming in, and this problem needs to be fixed. The best way to do this seems to be, close the border.

Section 1:
Having immigrants can be very dangerous. Many people may be wanted for crimes in their home country, and by letting them coming into our country, we're giving them another opportunity to continue commiting the same crimes but on a more extreme level. In fact, in the year 2013, 36,007 illegal immigrant criminals were released from prison, before they were to be deported. Among this group of "illegals" were murderers, rapists, kidnappers, and commiters of other serious crimes. Terrorism is one of those. Look at 911 for example.

Section 2:
Having both Northern and Southern borders open is just asking for terrorism to get into our country. Terrorists may see this as an opportunity to just, walk on in. This will eventually cost American lives, as these terrorists exploit this weakness in our country. To get a good idea of what it would be like, imagine 911 happening atleast once a week.

Section 3:
Slavery. People use immigrants as slaves. We don' t here about it, but it does happen. This is mostly targeted at Mexicans, seeing how they come here for work. This is against American beliefs, which means that by using them as slaves, invades their human rights. So by closing our borders, not only are we able to protect ourselves from the dangers of other countries (disease, terrorism, illegal drugs, criminals, etc.), we'd also be protecting the foreigner's rights.

I agree about the southern boarder. Those d*mn Mexicans need to stay the hell out. However we should not close the boaders to our oceans. People need to use the d*mn beaches. If we build one huge wall we will become the d*mn country of North Korea and they are p*ssies. I would like to go to the beach every once in a while and if there is a wall there than I cannot. you dumb as sh*t

I shall post my final argument as a comment.

We would not have to build a wall. We could put high security stations, and routine patrols on the beaches.

Other than that. All points extended.
