ABSTRACT
The article argues in support of the construction of a border wall in order to address the problem of illegal immigration in the U.S. Illegal immigration from Mexico has been a problem in the U.S. and efforts to address such problem are needed. It is noted here that the only viable way to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. is through the creation of a border wall. In addition, the article argues that although the U.S. sympathize with illegal immigrants, its first duty is to protect the nation.
