We need to fix our southern borders.
Debate Rounds (5)
Illegal immigrants boost our economy by working for cheap labor AND get paid most likely below minimum wage. Not only that but they pay taxes as well contrary to popular belief
Not only this but building a wall is expensive. Lets face it Mexico is not going to pay for the wall and Trump has not come up with any shred of evidence that he can make Mexico pay for it.
Also building a fence would not solve the problem. People will find different ways to get into the country like boats or people who overstay their vistas.
Also you list NO sources that 47 percent of immigrants from Mexico are illegals and will do illegal acts....so that has no impact.
It feels to me to be honest that your literally just repeating Trump talking points without listing any sources to back up your claims........like Donald Trump
This shows that they are a problem when they come over illegally.
you say that they are good for the economy. why not LEGAL immigrants. my problem is that the illegal immigration population,
Pew Hispanic Center estimated that the illegal immigrant population from Mexico had reduced to 5.6 million or 49 percent of the illegal immigrant population.
The question isn't whether to leave the borders just open or closed. Its about fixing the problem before you close the borders or after you close it. Republicans just want to close the borders but democrats want to fix the problem.
If your coming from Mexico or other Central American country it can take 10 YEARS! or MORE! Marco Rubio even acknowledged this in the first republican debate. Its not just black and white like you think it is. Why would someone risk getting deported or even sent to jail to do this if there wasn't a alternative.

If you think about all these things youll understand that the liberal side of this issue makes the most sense
Sorry but you still haven't proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that we should fix our southern borders.
The burden of proof is on you Pro
And since you haven't done you aren't favorable to win
The simple fact is that immigrants are essential to our economy and haven't done much harm to society.
In fact extremist Christians and the right wing have done more unspeakable acts than immigrants.
Read that and maybe you'll finally change your mind
95 percent of statsitcs are made up did you know that?
I just made up that statsistic as well!
Anyway you still have not proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that illegal immigration negatively impacts our country so much that we need to pay millions of dollars to make a wall and billions more into sustaining it
Vote Con since Pro has not done a good job of proving anything
