First, thanks for starting the debate.

Next, I personally feel that the United States shouldn't continue building the fence on the US-MEXICO border.

I feel like the rest of the world will use this against us. Other nations might say that we are being close-minded or weak. That is the last thing we need. If other countries think that we are unwilling to help out Mexico and accept their immigrants.

Please don't get me wrong. I think there needs to be better security on the border. However, I think that if we build a fence, it would make Mexican's feel like we are shutting them out.

I have much more to say, but I'd like to hear your feelings.

You are arguing the wrong side... The resolution is that we should continue building it, and you are pro, so you are supposed to argue for building the fence...
