In this article, the writer Robert Reich gives six reasons why we should not build the wall. He gives strong evidence against the wall like the price of the wall (over 25 billion dollars) and the decline of illegal immigrants already without a wall. Robert also states that Donald Trump confirmed the building of the wall and Trump said “Mexico will pay for the wall" but Robert doesn't think there is a chance Mexico will pay for it.
Andy Biggs argues that we should build the wall because illegal immigrants are easily entering the United States across the southern border due to lack of security. When people discuss the Nations safety they usually think of overseas terrorists invading us and not the thousands of illegal immigrants entering the US a year.
Ruben Gallego writes that Trump's promises about a big, beautiful wall and that Mexico will pay for it, are falling apart. Gallego states "Trump’s border wall is trying to solve a problem that doesn’t exist". Also there are places were it is almost impossible to build the wall on like mountains and trenches. Building 2,000 miles of wall between the US and Mexico is "ridiculous".
President Trump is edging closer to finalizing his promise of building "The Wall". The author of the article Alan Gomez writes that only 652 miles of the southern border contains walls or other borders. Keep in mind that the border is 1,954 miles long so only about 33% of the border is secured at the moment. Although the strongest security barriers are where the population is high, there is still a very small amount of security.
Multiple activists against the building of the Southern Border Wall planned to build a 200 foot long wall within sight of the Trump Building. The idea was to protest the building of the wall and they somehow thought Trump seeing the wall would just change his mind on building the wall. “How can we do something very grand in one of the most controversial elections ever?” says Haggerty.
Paul Ryan agrees with Trump and wrote, "It is time for The Wall" on twitter. The Chamber set aside around 1.6 billion dollars for down payment on the wall even though President Trump repeatedly said that Mexico would pay the full price for the ginormous wall.
