In America, protecting the borders is essential to our homeland security. Freedom has been taken advantage of over the past years and with Trump being president, all of that will change. Controlling what comes in and out of the U.S. is not just an immigration issue, it is a security issue and an economic issue. For example, the Judicial Watch has reported that ISIS has a training camp just 8 miles away from the U.S. border in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Also, there are similar reports of terrorists just outside of our border as well. If you support Hillary Clinton and don’t agree with anything Trump states, I would just like to state that Hillary did ‘once’ want the wall too. “Well look, I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in,” Hillary stated.
It is very obvious that the need to secure our borders is important. But the previous leaders of our country failed to do so and left a wide range of access for people to come in illegally. There are fences around baseball stadiums for a reason and this is because people must pay to get in. Are those walls and fences symbols of an unwelcoming nation or simple acts of prudence?
This relates to entering the country because people must come in legally in order to earn the ‘freedom card.’ There are many immigrants with visa cards in the U.S. and are waiting for the right to be free. But there is also immigrants in America that are illegal and undocumented- which is not helping our economy by any means. I believe that people must earn their way into America because freedom is such a blessing that should not be taken advantage of.
