Immigration Policy: Should the U.S. government take stricter measures to limit illegal immigration?
The United States must take drastic action to secure its borders. Illegal immigrants are a drain on the U.S. economy and pose an urgent security threat. Building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and banning immigration from countries known to export terrorists are necessary measures to protect the United States.
Undocumented immigrants do not pose a major threat to the United States. The United States was built on immigration, and immigrants are a benefit to the U.S. economy. Building a wall between the United States and Mexico and banning immigration from majority-Muslim countries is fundamentally un-American.
