It is no secret that there are some major issues with our immigration system. There are plenty of opinions what to do to fix our immigration system. However fixing the immigration system would be a waste of money and time if we do not secure our borders. Calling those that support the wall racists, and bigots will not change the fact that building the wall is the first logical step in immigration reform!
What the wall will not do
Building a wall on the border will not prevent people from entering our country legally. Non-citizens legally enter this country everyday via plane, boat, and by car through border check points. While most leave the country when their visa expires, many stay illegally. Building the wall will not prevent people who enter the country legally from staying past their visa expiration. That is an issue that needs to be addressed by other immigration policies.
What the wall will do
Building the wall will lay the ground work that will allow for true immigration reform. It will help reduce the number of criminals, drugs, and illegal immigrants from entering the country. The wall will also help to secure our country by making it harder for terrorist organizations to get people in to our country, preventing possible attacks that could result in the loss of American lives.
What we need to do
As citizens of this great country we have the freedom to make make our voices heard. We need to call write, email our representatives, and let them know we want the wall. If our representatives do not listen to us we need to elect those that will.
