Since his earliest campaigning, President Trump has pitched his idea for a wall located on the U.S.-Mexico border. His claim has always been that a wall would dramatically decrease the staggering and increasing number of illegal immigrants.

 

“Due to the fact that again, illegal immigrants are coming here on work-time visas for the most part and just staying here when they’re supposed to come back; that’s a big problem,” senior Greg Romney said.

 

But it begs the question: do the ends justify the means? There is little evidence to suggest that a border wall would have a serious effect on the immigration problem.

 

“I don’t think it will necessarily keep people out who really want to get in,” senior Taylor Behrman said.

 

As is the popular opinion of most Americans, a wall is more trouble than it’s worth.

 

“The wall is simply not going to fix it,” Romney said.

 

But a wall is a potential solution to only one problem. It has also been supposed that a border wall could help decrease the serious issue of drug trafficking.

 

“Immigration-wise, no. Drug problem and drug trafficking, I think it can help,” Romney said.

 

Drug trafficking is an increasingly urgent problem across the American-Mexican border. Does a wall change this?

 

“If we have this wall in place, what is most likely to happen is that a lot of trafficking will have to go on ‘over the wall’… and with customs in the United States getting stronger and stronger everyday, it will cut down the drug problem,”Romney said.
