Do you leave the doors to your house or car unlocked when you're not home or at night?

As far as I know, theres's not a single country in the world with true open borders. Since it will have ZERO effect on legal immigration, why on earth are some people so vehemently against the wall?

As I travel this great country, I can see many far better ways to spend twenty billion dollars.

The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Trump promised Mexico would pay for it. Why should we front the money in the meantime?

Firstly walls built by countries have historically been to keep people prisoners. The Berlín wall and the Warsaw Ghetto come to mind.

I know Trump compares his wall to the Great Wall of China. I laughed when he said if they could build that wall we could build ours. The Great Wall was built over the course of 1000 years by different dynasties. So unless we plan to finish Trumps wall in 2917 its not a good comparison

Secondly imo the wall would not stop the immigration problem

Keyser, have human beings managed to climb to the top of Mount Everest?

Just how high do you plan to make this wall. If we can climb Mount Everest then a 20 foot wall can certainly be scaled.

Only by manning the wall with guards for the entire 3000 miles complete with barbed wire and weapons would you have any real chance of the wall being successful at cutting down illegal immigration

Besides the huge cost in labor...armed guards with barbed wire sounds strikingly like a prison

BTW dont forget you can come from Mexico by taking a boat. Gonna put up a seawall along the Pacific and Atlantic also?

I refer you to the documentary ‘Pacific Rim’, where they built a giant wall, thinking it would protect society. It didn’t work.

Honest questions, the con side, would be:

Will the wall be effective? Will immigrants just react, divert means to other areas?

Will it harm wildlife and migration and the environment?
