A report said the border wall could cost nearly $70 billion to build and $150 million a year to maintain. Trump thinks that he can build it with only $5 Billion. The GoFundMe page that is asking donations to build the wall can’t even fund the wall for one year. It has received $18,668,624 in donations so far. This is well short of its goal of $1 Billion. But the thing is, a wall won't even work. One reason is that the migrants will look for other ways to get in. A third of illegal immigrants entered the country legally according to the Pew Research Center. They did this by overstaying their visas. Many of these people entered the country by plane. If a wall were to be put, more migrants would just enter by plane and overstay their visas. People also need to recognize that walls are vulnerable. Many things can easily take down the wall such as storms and floods. For example, a flood in Arizona washed away 40 feet of steel fencing. Other more sensible solutions are inferred drones, cameras, or a fence. People need to realize that a wall is not possible and we should discuss other options. To think that we had a government shutdown over a project that won’t even work is crazy. We hope a nationwide discussion about border security starts.
