  • Yes, it is an amazing idea.

    The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers in 2013 alone was $113 billion. That is a lot of money. It is also estimated that 80-90 per cent of all illegal drugs in the USA are smuggled through the Mexican border.Most of these drugs are smuggled in by illegal immigrants. In 2005, federal law-enforcement seizure counts for cocaine and marijuana alone were astounding. The government stated that 1.13 million pounds of cocaine and 6.9 million pounds of marijuana with a total estimated street value of more than $80 billion dollars was seized. Additionally, federal law-enforcement officials estimate that only 20 percent of the drugs coming into the country are seized. It is estimated that 60 percent of illegal immigrant coming to the U.S jump the Southern Border. A wall would bring that percentage down significantly. The wall would have no bearing on the average Mexican wanting to emigrate to the U.S legally with documents, paying tax and staying away from crime. It would be very difficult to smuggle drugs into the U.S from Mexico with a wall, as traffickers would have to go through the entry checkpoints where they would have to show their documents and search them and their vehicles. The wall would decrease the amount of murders made by illegal immigrants as well, as there would be background checks on immigrants at the border to see if they have a criminal record in their own country.

  • Bruh, Donald Trump is orange.

    "I must have misheard you," you say.
    "I don't think so," I replay.
    That's right. You heard me. Donald Trump's wall will work solely because he is orange and bathes in cheeto zest. Yes, he was genetically modified as a small child to have 45% genes of an orange and 26% genes of a clementine. It is common science that people with the genes of an orange who bathe in cheeto zest are significantly smarter with higher IQ. Therefore, the wall cannot be a bad idea.

  • The Wall actually helps both countries.

    For the US, the Wall helps to prevent the influx of illegal immigration as well as drug trafficking. I recognize that not all of that influx will be stopped, but a sizeable portion of the problem would be removed. The drugs obviously brings its own problems, to include the various cartels and their methods of intimidating American citizens. However, the immigration poses another, arguably more pertinent threat. The influx of undocumented workers causes wages to stagnate at best, and commonly causes a decrease. After all, if businesses have the choice of hiring an American at certain wage, but an illegal immigrant, who wants to avoid Federal detection, agrees to work for below that wage, then they will hire the cheaper source of labor. This does not account for those that merely come in and then seek out welfare benefits in Sanctuary Cities.

    As for Mexico, it is no secret that the government of that country is corrupt. The politicians who truly care about the people are inept and the rest are in the pockets of drug kingpins and business interests. What Mexico truly needs is a Revolution, which will not occur if its citizens can merely find an escape by crossing the Rio Grande.

  • Border control is a basic thing for a nation, no need to debate

    Habe you been to Hong Kong and then make a transit to China ?
    (Even Hong Kong is part of China already, just a reminder)
    You will see very strict border control befoer you can enter the China territory and vice versa. There are walls and fences everywhere by the border.

    Border control is about customs / Immigration/ quarantine and many basic things that a nation needs to control.

    Why would anyone take so much efforts to question such a basic thing ?

  • No, the wall will not work as intended.

    The border between the United States and Mexico is sometimes referred to as a "revolving door". This is because there is a large number of non-immigrant workers that cross between the two countries on a regular basis for legal work. As of right now, even with our border being one of the most militarized between two friendly nations, these legal workers are able to move between countries with relative ease. The erection of a massive wall between the two countries, along with increased border security, would make it much more difficult for these workers to come and go as needed, and henceforth encourage them to overstay their visas. In fact, it is estimated that approximately 1/3 of all current illegal immigrants in the U.S. are people who have overstayed their visas. Drugs are a large reason for the proposed construction of this wall, however the main problem is in the demonization of such substances and those who use them. Since Nixon declared the war on drugs in 1971, which was also later perpetuated by the Reagans , the abuse of drugs in the U.S. has skyrocketed. The United States now has one of the largest drug abuse rates in the world according to recent studies, despite the fact that no scientific evidence has shown that drugs such as marijuana cause any harm. There are actually no verified cases of any person dying from marijuana use. Rather than trying to keep these drugs out and punishing those who use them, we should focus on offering rehabilitation/assistance to users, legalization of certain substances, and promoting the awareness that drugs are a healthcare issue rather than a criminal one.

  • The wall will imprison people.

    Do you want to be confined behind bars and under control for the rest of your life. This is exactly what Donald Trumps wall is doing to the people of mexico. It is forcing them to be controlled by someone they had no say in coming to power. They are restricting how people move just regarding 1m. It is discrasefull that anyone (that is British in particular) can think it is a good idea.

  • No, because it is stupid

    I think that the wall shouldn't be for kids I Kida think that adults should at least show some ID but kids should not be blocked from the U.S I think that DT should not have a wall, but some sucurity for say.... Bad people who are trying to get over. Other than that the wall is the worst idea ever kids from Mexico should have a brighter future in the U.S!!!!

  • It will do nothing except make people mad and cost money.

    The wall will not work for three main reasons. The first is property. Since the border between Texas and Mexico is the Rio Grande, Trump would have to put it on one side and invade people's property. Mexico wouldn't allow it, so the wall would have to be placed on the American side, and cut into American property. The second reason is that it simply won't stop illegal immigrants from entering. They will find a way to get past the wall. This is no different from the Berlin Wall, which was meant to last forever. It didn't make it 30 years. Why should we believe this will be any different. The final reason is that it will cost American tax payers lots of money. Despite what Trump says, Mexico will not pay for it, and the Mexican president has said this. For these reasons, I do not believe the wall is a good idea.

  • Horrible and ridiculous idea

    America is a safe haven for immigrants coming from war poverty and a dictatorship?Will we close off all our borders? And what then, Islamic terrorist groups still will get in our country by illegal means and still attack us all the wall will do will keep out innocent people and families and give us a feeling of safety,false safety

  • Not needed to protect the USA

    Its not needed to protect the United States of America from Trouble. Also, its wastes a lot of money to make it and there is something called airplaine. Trump wall is not needed to Protect the United States oaf America from trouble and harm from the Mexicans. Boo trump wall.

  • It is wrong!!

    We're still going to find a way past it, and also we are just going to be wasting money when we could invest it on helping homeless people! It will also be violating the constitution. There shouldn't even be a choice to build a wall! It is just plain wrong.

  • No, it's a stupid and insulting idea.

    The wall will not keep drugs or illegals out of the country. It will insult and Anger Mexicans and even Americas who will lose their property. Mexico is our neighbor on this continent and they have potential to be our greatest ally. Their natural resources and labor force could be helpful to us, our societal and government model, as well as our modernization, could benefit them. We should be building each other up, not building walls to drive us apart. History shows us that walls don't work and usually are built by tyrants afraid of losing their authority.
