Transcript of Closed Border Debate

Closed Border laws have roots going back to the late 1800s, with the Chinese Exclusion act being instated.
In 2010, the Border Patrol reported that 212,000 immigrants caught in Tucson, Arizona, 30 percent already had a criminal record in the US.
Yearly Criminal and regular Deportations increased by 400% from 2001 to 2012, in result of the actions taken after the 9/11 attacks
All of the 9/11 attackers came to the U.S. on non-immigrant visas
Overcrowded cities full of low wage immigrants bringing down wages were a major cause of the Great Depression, and this could happen again.
Millions of dollars were spent on Immigrants when we had fully open borders, in efforts to make them comfortable while they spread disease like the plague during the late 1800s and early 1900s
Domestic Policy
Hunger and poverty is persistent in the US. Closing the border will help to end this. If the border is closed, the government can focus on fixing the problems in the US ASAP. Hunger is a problem. More people are homeless than ever. Sickness and disease is killing off more people than ever. With the pressing problem of immigration, these major problems become minor priorities.
“By changing policies, programs and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities in which we live. Bread for the World Institute provides policy analysis on hunger and strategies to end it.”
Foreign Policy
Diseases from other places travel to the U.S. from other countries through illegal immigration. When undocumented immigrants sneak in, they could potentially be bringing disease we have no idea about what sickness is coming in. Outbreaks of chickenpox, scabies, MRSA, and other infections are already occurring.
Terrorists from around the world can sneak into the U.S. and cause a serious threat. But, if we don’t know about them, we definitely can’t stop them. 9-11 was caused by unknown terrorists coming into the country. That isn’t something we want to have happen again.
We should try to preserve the American culture. Customs, beliefs, arts and creations, and other norms make us who we are. It is passed down from ancestors as a treasure, it gives us our identity. Slowly, our heritage will disappear as more hidden undocumented immigrants increase in the population, and less of our culture is noticed.
Closed Border Debate
America can't
the world.
But we can support
each other.
