Should the United States secure the US-Mexican border?

  • Yes they Should

    The united states is allowing way too many illegal immigrants into this country. Illegal immigrants currently make up 3.5% of the entire united states population (around 11.2 million illegal immigrants.) California, the state with the most illegal immigrants, pays over $30 million to educate and support illegal aliens. We need to close the boarder.

  • Close the borders

    I grew up in an military family and know of the hardships that can arise. If someone wants to come to our country they need to do it the legal way. If we break the law we are arrested so why should they not be? They will be breaking the law coming in illegally. We have laws put in place for a reason. If they are having hardships and want to come to this country they should do it the right way and if they cannot then the law needs to deal with them. If we break the law we are arrested so the same should apply to them also. If this cannot be done in the correct manner then we need to shut done the border.

  • Close the border

    The terrorists coming in through that area also all the drug lords so if we want to keep our country free and actually fix these drug problems we will have to close the borders. And if we keep the borders open we need to actually follow through with background checks so we know who these people are.

  • Send illegal Immigrant back home

    We american citizens have to pay for all the expenses of these illegal people. Yes illegal people , ruin it for everyone , even ruin it for legal immigrants. U are not a american if u are not a citizen and do not have american rights , the end . I don't have Iraq citizen rights because I'm not a Iraq citizen same goes for everyone . We Americans have to think for america not everyone else in world . Come immigrants and weak just come legally and we welcome open jeartedly

  • WE NEED TO STOP THE FLOW OF ILLEAGAL WETBACKS and force all illegals who are already here to go back to their home country.

    ILLEAGAL immigrants come here and take jobs away from citizens, and then get on welfare and cost taxpayer millions, if the Decca kids want to say here they have to turn all family members over to immigration authorities, and cannot sponsor them for citizenship, further more they can never visit their former families ever

  • Close border now

    If my Italian family came into this country and went thru all protocol needed then == I know it was bleeding heart Liberals who screwed this whole process up and we need a firm and united government to strengthen and bring this country back --- that MAN is MY PRESIDENT Mr. TRUMP!! God Bless America and the FLAG my family FOUGHT FOR ===GET THE DREAMERS TO DREAM BUT NOT IN MY COUNTRY!!!

  • Close it now

    They don't assimilate. They simply relocate and bring their country with them. The country they voluntarily left, The US doesn't deserve to shoulder the world's problems and grief at the same time.
    Having separate holidays, languages, cultures, etc isn't good for any country. It forces competition amongst the population. Typical leftist nonsense

  • Yes they should

    The border should be secured because we don't know who is coming in and moving into your neighborhood. Once the illegal immigration is stopped crimes in states bordered to Mexico will decrease and isn't that enough reasons to close the border? Gang member, drug seller, murder, terrorist, like I said you don't know who's coming in

  • Close the border

    America should close the border to Mexico because the illegal immigrants are costing the US millions of dollars and millions of jobs. It also allows people to flood the county and cause chaos for people who came here legally. This is why we need to close the border to Mexico. AMERICA FIRST.....DUH

  • Absolutely we should secure the border

    A while back during the bush administration, We have deployed 6,000 National Guard troops at the border between 2006-2008. Border crossings and apprehensions has sharply decrease and as well for the incoming contraband from Mexico. So yes.. Border security is heavily more needed to combat the drug violence that is over spilling from the border.

  • No they should not

    First of all, it is spelled B O R D E R. The BORDER is actually secured, there are customs officials, policemen, surveillance 24hrs etc. Second of all, illegals pay taxes as well. So technically the money spent to educate illegal children in California is actually payed by them. You cannot simply close the border, what about tourism, business, trade? Are you forgetting that Mexico exports many products that Americans LOVE to eat? Apparently, illegals deprive Americans of obtaining jobs, but they actually do the jobs no one wants to do. Next time, before starting a debate, get your facts and spelling straight.

  • With reform, yes.

    I currently am not a supporter of illegal immigration, but with reform I think opening the borders would save us money & it wouldn't be a large issue among Americans. Immigrants make up a workforce that a surprising amount of Americans can't make up ourselves. Immigrants are usually very skilled in what they plan to do in America. This broadens our ability to make progress in the labor force greatly. You may ask, "Well illegal immigrants don't pay income tax like the rest of us!" I personally think taxation is theft & nobody should be forced by the government to pay taxes, this includes legal Americans. To keep things realistic though I'll explain it this way.... One form of taxation I actually do support is a national sales tax. There's no tax on work, therefore, we do not have to worry about the 'Immigrants don't pay taxes' issue. With a national sales tax everybody already pays taxes based off of what they purchase. You can learn more at Fairtax.Org. Also, making a simpler path towards citizenship isn't harmful in my opinion. Back to my previous points, it just broadens that area of labor and tax payers. I've looked at the test immigrants have to take and it is very difficult. We can't know for sure what making a simpler path towards citizenship would actually do, but I can guarantee that more of these illegal immigrants would actually take the time to become legal. Like I said at the beginning I do not support illegal immigration, but with such reforms that I described in my argument I believe opening the borders would save America lots of money & time.

  • No, they should not

    The United States does not ''allow'' illegal immigrants. Why do you think they are illegal then? Illegal immigrants have been accused of 'stealing' peoples jobs, but in fact, they take the jobs that Americans think are beneath them. Such as janitors, crop pickers, cooks etc. Technically the US/Mexican Border is secured. There are fences, cameras, 24 hr surveillance, customs officers, policemen etc. The border cannot simply close. That is so stupid, why would anyone want to close it? What about trade, business and tourism? Even if the statistics of educating illegal children in California is accurate, not all illegals are Mexicans. And ALL illegal immigrants pay taxes!
    P.S. Learn to spell the word BORDER before submitting a debate to a real website where real problems are discussed.

  • We should leave the border open

    I support the opening of our border because I am a libtard (Liberal Retard) i want illegal immigrants to come steal my jobs, Murder my children and rape my dog. I was taught in a public school and I went to harvard (I got in cause i was black) so i consider myself very knowlagable on this subject. I think we should let in more little brown people to pick the cotton in my feild (hiring black people is racist) We should charge them no taxes and pay for their social security. This will make us americans seem far more accepting of other cultures.

  • The border should remain open because we can look at what happens when other counties put walls up.

    Think about what became of the Berlin Wall or all of the anger that surrounds the security walls in Israel, Do we want that for American? This was a land built of freedom and could not have come this far without immigration. Yes, There are problems with illegal immigration from Mexico but putting up a wall to separate out two counties will not solve everything, It will only make our relationship worse and alienate our peoples. Not to mention, Walls are expensive to build and to hopefully, One day, Tear down.

  • Why should we lift border restrictions?

    Historically, We've had an open border with Mexico. American and Mexican citizens would cross in between each country and a Visa was never required. Then WW2 broke out. After the war, The government began to fear that Soviet spies would cross the border, So we began to close the border. The war on drugs in the 70's led to heavy restrictions of travel from Mexico to the US due to fear of the cartels. The problem today is that there is less of a reason to restrict the border now than there was back in the 40's. Many people point to MS13 as a reason, However the gang was formed in the US, And is extremely small compared to other major US gangs. Other's point to ISIS, But most terrorists in America are radicalized within our borders, After they immigrated here legally. Securing the border doesn't stop terrorists or foreign agents or drug cartels. It makes it harder for immigrants to move to the US, People who are trying to escape the cartels, The poverty, And the gangs. I know that as a nation, We have the right to secure our borders and restrict immigration, But just because we have the option, Doesn't mean that we should use it to its fullest extent.

  • Put restrictions not borders.

    I believe that we should allow citizens to come to America because we are a free country and many people come her to find a new start. Imagine what other countries would think about us if we denied people the chance for a happy life. I believe however that before people venture onto out land that they should have a background check done to make sure they are safe people and not terrorists.

  • Keep the border open.

    The US should open their border more with Mexico because, Mexico has an abundant supply of young workers. America needs a good economy to keep businesses open and the poverty line low. Better trust for each others countries if border is opened more such as with Canada. And also Europe opened many of their borders and there economy didn’t fall it was just fine.

  • Keep it Open

    I believe that the Mexican border should be left open. Many Mexicans come here looking for help and new lives. The people that come here from Mexico have to pay taxes so there paying for their own children to go to school. People are saying that illegal Aliens are taking their jobs but there really not. They are taking the jobs American people don’t want to do such as janitors, crop pickers, cookers, work in meat factories. Americans have become lazy and the jobs they are doing are the jobs we don’t want to do. America needs a good economy to keep businesses open and the poverty line low.
