Possibly the most trending topic of post-2018 was the Wall debate: Should America build a wall to curb immigration? More importantly, though, should be the question: Will the wall work? There’s no point in spending 5+ billion dollars on a structure that does nothing. Here’s how the two sides think about the effectiveness of the wall.
Furthermore, China handles immigration very differently. There are very strict policies and it is extremely hard to get permanent resident status. People caught crossing the border illegally are shot on sight. There is no, “I seek asylum” in China.
A wall is also immoral. The United States has set an example for other countries in many places. What message are we sending to the world if we wall our Mexico border? More importantly, what message are we sending to Mexico? Essentially, we are distancing ourselves for Mexico. While they haven’t exactly been our best ally, it’s important to maintain good relations with Mexico.
Even more, a wall won’t keep those who really want to get in, that is, the terrorist and drug dealers. What keeps them from using some sort of weapon to destroy or damage the wall? No structure is indestructible, and the United States will only be wasting more money on fixing the wall.
Although it’s true that a wall might stop some immigrants, it won’t make up for its cost. There are many other ways to get in the United States. For example, you can get a travel visa and then never leave. You can give birth to a baby in the U.S. and use the baby as an “anchor.”
Effectiveness aside, let’s say that we do build a wall and drastically curb immigration. This would harm our economy. According to Small Business Administration, immigrants are more likely to start a business compared to native citizens. These businesses create jobs for other people. Furthermore, immigrants improve our workforce. Since there are more people competing for a job, everyone needs to work harder, which make our workforce better and in turn grows our economy. We need more immigrants, not less.

The real reason that the Dems want undocumented immigrants into our country is that they get votes and are counting on illegal votes to give them a majority. Texas just found over 100,000 illegal votes. Sanctuary Cities give undocumented immigrants a driver’s license and based upon that they register them to vote (motor vote law). This violates our Constitution and Trump tried to eliminate Federal Subsidies to sanctuary cities but was overturned by a liberal judge.
Other states have found a lot of dead people still on their voter rolls and yet miraculously the dead are still voting. States try to purge their voter rolls and the Dems still scream racism. We tried to insist that you show a valid ID AND YOU GUESSED IT THE DEMS STILL SCREAMED RACISM! Ironically they don’t scream racism over having to show a valid ID to buy booze, cigarettes, check into a motel, buy an airline ticket, a bus ticket, a train ticket, to have a bank account but to vote it is completely racist and claiming that we are discriminating against poor black voters.
The Dems have for years tried to get hate speech legislation passed to no avail. I would love it if that legislation passed because Democrats are the most egregious offenders of that black art. Look no further than Maxime Waters having her followers disturbing the peace and have their followers run people out of restaurants.
The Dems are acting like a toddler suffering through the terrible twos and that is just the level that they are behaving as. Conservatives need to stop acting like schoolyard nerds who daily have their lunch money stolen by the Dem bullies and fight back like Trump.
By not fighting back we are losing more and more of the population and the DEMS are fighting hard for full-blown socialism. I spent two years in Europe watching up close and personal and believe me socialism does not work, has never worked anywhere that it was tried, but the Dems are still pushing it. We need to start fighting back and take our country back before it is too late.
Now we are on the verge of legalizing killing babies right up to delivery several states. These babies are completely viable and completely capable of surviving outside the mother and instead are murdered inside the mother.

The best solution once we get laws that actually benefit and protect the American people would be just a line in the sand and signs that
say “Trespassers will be shot” with sharpshooters to back them up.
A few good laws and a few bullets and problem solved.
However, since we are gutless and greedy, let the Democrats play humanitarian as they stuff the ballet box and Republicans play as if they care about security as they build a wall and hire undocumented immigrants.
And of course as the vote buying scumbags in Washington allow this unbridled invasion, we are being drowned in drugs, criminals, social problems, and cheap labor.
We should put our welfare bums to work and only allow immigrants who can make a positive contribution.
As it stands, we are repeating the Mariel Boat Lift fiasco of 1980 a thousand times over with Marielitos from around the world.
