5 Reasons Why We Need the Border Wall NOW

Now, if you read this site with any regularity, we probably don’t need to convince you why the proposed border wall between the United States and Mexico is important. The need for bolder security on this front is pretty obvious.

If there is any single issue that got President Donald Trump elected, this is it. The wall was his signature campaign issue. And while other Republicans have made similar calls in the past, President Trump drove the point home like no one else before him was able to do. That said, conservative Americans — or really any American that wants to continue living in a safe country governed by the rule of law — will be understandably miffed with the president if he leaves office without even laying the first couple of bricks down.

Obviously, the Democratic Party hasn’t exactly made this easy for us. Despite the fact that there was a clear mandate from the American people in 2016 to strengthen the border, liberal policymakers have fought against this tooth and nail. The debate has been raging for over two years now.

So, if Democrats still need to be convinced, One America News’ Liz Wheeler has five more reasons for them. Check them out in the video below.

  1. I am a registered voter and want the border wall built with the needed funding voted in by our congress. We the people want it.

    1. Even when the majority of Americans favor policy change or action, they generally do not get it. The political class designs domestic and international policies to further their power and interests without regard to ours.
      Ballots offer no real choice: 90 percent of incumbents return to office, over and over, until they choose not to; we seldom ever determine their tenure.
      By casting a ballot, victims tacitly agree that the State should reign over them. They unwittingly cooperate with their predators to change the question from whether Leviathan may manage our lives to how. Voting legitimizes these evils and many more.
      The idea that government’s one and only job is to protect our political liberty and answers to the people expired well over a century ago.
      The myth of altruism and “public policy” gives the government the implied and collective consent to operate as an organized criminal cartel with impunity.

    2. Yes we do – the majority want the wall, so we need to get back to politics of old where parties watched nothing bad creeped in. Now we have a Socialist party and Republican party. One is for helping all people and the other wants the guns, and bad situations for the people so can over take them. Look at other countries that have fallen, with same leader ship. Pray people come back to Love and caring, as hate is of Satan. The destroyer. We are not to let anyone come in that wants to, that is not what love is all about. Under the Lord God this nation was set up and about time we listen to HIM, His regulations and will for us. We all are His creation being able to choose if we want to follow Him , trust Him in faith, Love Him or walk with Satan and go in the fiery pit of hell someday by our own choosing. Eternal life otherwise with Him – our God in paradise. Difference of Love and hate. No one is perfect only God is, but we are to strive for. Pray for everyone to find the peace of God that leads to …..

    3. I know we need more help on the southern border, but you are wrong about the people wanting a Wall. Any recent poll shows only minority support for a Wall but almost everyone wants to strengthen the border and I want Trump to have Mexico pay for any construction as he promised me.

      1. Read the Bible God Be lived in Borders he set borders for Abraham I sic and Jacob God Read Gods word Go Against his Law and Wind up in Hell forever.Remember it is your Choice.you Made it.

      2. Same polls that had Hillary winning by a landslide? All Trump has to do is cut off all foreign aid to Mexico and the border is paid for. Deport all non citizens back to Mexico. They cost us over ten billion a year in welfare. The demonazis want to give Mexico 10 billion to strengthen their southern border, Bull S**t spend that on our border. Cut all foreign aid to our enemies like Honduras. Any money to help the people just goes into the pockets of the crooks in charge. I want everyone who supports open borders to be forced to take in and support these illegals. And not one penny of our taxes are to be used for them. You libturds can open your own wallets and keep your hands out of ours.

      3. Forrest,
        . . . Why are you telling these lies. Every major communist poll shows at least 50% of the people want the wall to be built. Since these polls are run by the communist you can add at least 50% to those polls. This means that almost 80% of Americans want the border to be secured and tightly controlled. 20% want lethal force to be used. 55% want all of the illegals deported. Americans not you communist aka democrat traitors want our borders secured and all illegals sent home.
        . . . . I favor all of the above except the use of lethal force unless law enforcement is being attack plus the illegals need to be convicted of illegal entry into the USA so that they have a Felony conviction and they are no longer able to legally enter the country. If you don’t like this then you should pack up your bags and get out. I can recommend several nice communist dictatorships such as Cuba, China, Russia, NK, or Venezuela.
        America: Love it or Leave it!
        GOD Bless and GOD Help us,
        rich!

      4. Sorry Forrest you are the one who is wrong. I live in Texas. We are overrun with Illegals, some of whom have been here for many years. They have children and we have educated, provided food stamps and health care for them, But enough is enough. 72% of the Dreamers are on Welfare and food stamps and they have been here and are established. Jobs are fairly easy to find. I have had an illegals scream at me “I DON’T PAY TAXES”. This was in front of his two children, both educated in one of the best schools in Texas, One entering college this year. I am still paying for his kids to go to school at 72 years old by paying school tax. Yes I pay tax, he doesn’t. I don’t want this horde to be allowed to enter the US. Use some common sense.

      5. I grew up in San Diego, spent over 30 years just miles from the border. When I worked the 2nd or 3rd shift, it was not unusual for my wife to call me concerned about hearing strange noises during the night as I was working. My advice was call the cops and I’ll stay on the phone with you until they arrive. The some conclusion was always offered by the cops, aliens moving northward, heading for Los Angeles as their jumping off point to spread across America. These events were always treated in a caviler manner as an accepted routine and acceptable by law enforcement as far back as 1968. We have been systematically overwhelmed by these folks who say they love their country, but scamper away from their homeland in the dead of night. I am not responsible for the problems these people face in their everyday lives, I have always been as charitable as the next guy toward my fellow planet dwellers. Instead of running to another country as your only solution to the problems that you should hold against your home government, why is it OK to become a burden to another country that has always given more help and assistance to people in need. We do more than our part to right the wrongs of this world, but we cannot fix everyone and every thing. Please, stay home and make more of an effort to fix, modify, revolt or whatever it takes to hold your government responsible for your living conditions that make you seek an escape to somewhere else and NOT facing the problem head on. I do not accept the weak excuse and rationalizing that your life is in danger, maybe it is, but where would this country be if our forefathers, whines about the dangers they faced in the early beginnings of this country, don’t think it was all a cake walk. People fought and died to make America what it is today, they did not just run away as a solution, stay home and fix your country. When I was offered a promotion and relocation to the Northwest, I jumped at the chance to get away from fearful calls from my wife late at night caused by people wandering through the neighborhood disrespecting my country and breaking our laws. Well, the invasion has been here in the Northwest for some time now, and I easily notice the degrading of the lifestyle here that I once enjoyed. The Democrats have made this a political issue in order to groom future voters, I am sick and tired of being put 2nd in the eyes of the left, here in my own country. Americans should always be first in their own country, I do not want to remain 2nd in the political games played by the moronic Democrats. I will remain a proud American and even though many people want to just give this great country away, I amazed at the eyes/ears closed political cesspool this country has become, and the incessant spewing of political hate for our government, God help us.

    1. Gregory Kuhl, No one wants the wall , more than Trump, so quit with the negative attitude. He has been blocked by the demonCRAPIC JERKS. They were all for the wall back in 2014. The RATS made several attempts, and as always, they didn’t follow through. But because Trump proposed it, ( and they hate him so much, ) now, its a bad idea? They are the biggest hypocrites EVER! So KEEP SUPPORTING HIM, instead of judging, and count your blessings, that the Lord has appointed a REAL MAN to do this task!

    2. President Trump is not the reason the wall is not being funded. I’m sure most people know the problem with border security comes from the likes of Pelosi and Schumer. We all need to send them a message informing them of how America feels about the border. It might make a difference, but I’m not going to be holding my breath!

  2. All those open borders, ICE abolitionists, and anti-CBP and anti-Trump wall should knock down all the walls in their house and see how well open borders work for them!

  3. We need to close the border until we have adequate barriers in place, most Americans are in favor of the wall. Only liberals appose it and that’s because all the illegals, become liberal voters because of all the benefits they receive which they are not intitled to are destroying our country and costing Americans far to much. And they are exposing us to Crime, Disease and dangerous drugs. It must stop NOW!!!!!

    1. Jack please do a fact check, our present homeland security says 80% of drugs come across current official border crossings . Also trumps own govt says 40% of illegals are those with legal visas who overstay their visa lik Melanie and our us reps parents did. Thomas did you not watch the meeting in the White House where Trump said he would be glad to shut down the gov and take credit for it.

  4. How can Trump make democrats own the government partial shutdown when democrats own the media, the “unbiased” media which has already convinced people (most of my neighbors and co-workers, at least) that anything bad is Trump’s fault… and these people DO vote!

    1. It’s up to you to correct the fakse media border indoctrination since the U.S. media no longer reports the truth

      Democrats ESPECIALLY Pelidi and Schumer own the Fed Govt closure since DEMS and many RINOS gave had no problem giving OBAMA the $151.8 BILLION for Iran to fund world TERRORISM & their 100 new ICBMs

      But won’t fund our SOUTHERN BORDER ti keep crime, drugs, CHILD trafficking, gangs, & ILLEGALS out

      For example, Florida after Obama was LEFT with 2000 different gangs

  5. I agree! I am part of the 51% . I voted for Trump. Part of my reason was to protect our borders.the five points are well spoken. Now we have to get our young people to accept it too!

    1. BUILD THE WALL………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

  6. There is an old saying that strong fences make good neighbors…If the wall were built the right way not only would the U.S be safer but so would Mexico…If you make it so hard to penetrate our border that will help keep the cartels back out of the border states in Mexico and here…It makes people think twice before leaving their country knowing they can’t get through Mexico… The ones that do will probably be legit asylum seekers …Screen them in Mexico and let they’re authorities notify us as to those we should speak with… This could be a good fifty fifty deal in cost for the U.S and Mexico…

  7. President Trump must not back down on this issue either finance the wall or cut off ALL foreign aid but most of all keep the government shut down until the funds are made available period.

  8. they are already letting the horde in. Doesn’t much matter what we say or what the President says they are going to do it. Beto is behind this, or at least heavily involved. Tough times are ahead.

  9. the democratic party needs to be abolished. they are an enemy to the united states. everything they do is absolutely against what is the right thing to do! HOW CAN WE (THE TRUE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES) GET RID OF THIS CANCER THAT IS TRYING TO KILL US AND ELIMINATE OUR WAY OF LIFE. THE UNITED STATES IS THE ONLY POWER THAT IS STOPING THE NEW WORLD ORDER FROM TAKING OVER! THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALL FOR THIS TO HAPPEN BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY WILL BECOME THE LEADERS WITH SATAN. THIS IS NOT A JOKE, IT IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH.!!!

  10. Senator Jon Kyl a few years ago asked senator Diane Feinstein whether the Wall South of San Diego worked to deter crime, stop illegal border crossings and regularize business on each side of the wall. She replied yes the wall was effective. You can look it up. Another bit of evidence a wall works and when combined with other security elements can bring us better security, more safety and fewer drugs and violent crime.

  11. It is interesting that the countries of Israel, China, India and Germany all built border walls to either keep people in or people out. Even the American wealthy have built iron spiked fence walls around their property for protection, and often have armed guards positioned inside. The U.S. is one of only few countries where the citizens have property rights. In most Kingdoms in history the land was owned by the king, and pesants paid the king for the right to farm on the Kings land. Come to think of it, the U.S. government owns much if not most of the land, and ranchers pay the government to graise their cattle. Each new U.S. president before he leaves office commits more open land to the government for National and State parkland. Citizens are allowed to build fences around their property …. as long as they pays their property taxes, however the height of the fence is highly regulated. Since most immigrants who sneak into the country, do so without any knowledge of private property. Thus the some 40 million illegals in the the U.S. are quite a problem.

  12. Yes!! We need the wall! The citizen of this country pay with our property taxes (which get higher and higher every year!!! and federal taxes for all the free benefits that the undocumented immigrants receive. The billions we spent on them should go to take care of our own citizens needs and to improve our way of life in this country! Enough is enough with so much unjustified consents! We cannot help out the whole world any more!

    1. Pelosi & Schumer r absolutely the most disgusting people in America right now! It is not their choice as to whether or not we have a border wall. Trump was voted in because the majority of citizens want the BORDER WALL!
      So build it or kick the Dems out of MY country! U’d think they’d learn from watching Europe’s demise because of their Open Borders! I would truly like to divide America into two separate countries- BECAUSE WE ALREADY ARE!!

  13. Ms Wheeler’s comments are well taken. Still, she failed to mention that part of ‘public safety’ are our concerns about the diseases being brought into the country by ‘unvetted’ immigrants. When entering ‘legally’, the health status of the immigrant is addressed. So far, several diseases are now spreading, brought in by migrants–that are resistant to our medicines. There are two, now, listed that we’ve never even ‘heard of’, let alone developed any treatment for!! Those people are in the ‘waiting rooms’ of our hospitals–right next to ‘you’!! These ‘migrants’ have actually kidnapped little kids to pose as ‘parents’! I don’t like any child taken from it’s legal parent but–it doesn’t seem to bother the ‘thugs’ that are using them to gain access!! You’re right, Ms Wheeler–we don’t want ‘that kind of people’ here!!

  14. LET’S FUND THE WALL OURSELVES, BRIAN KOLFAGE A TRIPLE AMPUTEE VETERAN HAS STARTED A GO FUND ME PAGE TO FUND THIS WALL AND IN NINE DAYS HAS RAISED OVER SEVENTEEN MILLION DOLLARS. I HAVE DONATED A HUNDRED DOLLARS AND I AM SEVENTY THREE AND ON A VERY LIMITED INCOME (LESS THAT TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR). THIS WALL IS NEEDED IN ORDER TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY FROM DRUG DEALER’S, CRIMINALS, SEX PREDATOR’S AND ILLEGALS WHO WILL GO ON WELFARE, FLOOD OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND GET FREE MEDICAL. WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS AND THE DEMOCRATS CONTINUE TO RESIST BECAUSE OUR PRESIDENT KNOWS THIS IS THE ANSWER. PLEASE GO TO THIS WEBSITE (WWW.WEWILLFUNDTHEWALL.COM) AND CHECK IT OUT AND PLEASE DONATE.

  15. Yes we need the wall the DUMMYcrats should take down the walls around there house see how safe they feel. Trump is the best

  16. Better build the wall now! Mexico has just elected a Socialist President. In a few years, or less, Mexico will be a crap hole like Cuba, Venezuela, Guatemala, Honduras, Columbia, etc. Their people will be scrambling to get the heck out of there!
    Couple that with the gangs out of control, exacting extortion from everyone, big business to farmers. Mexico has no justice system. It is a hell hole.
    BUILD THE WALL!,

  17. There is no question we need the wall it’s all been said safety security drugs infections but very rarely do they actually say why do the Democrats don’t want it it’s for the vote they’re losing the death fault cuz we’re getting smarter the old people are realizing that this Democrat Party is not what it was 40 50 years ago even the college students and graduates are trying to wake up the only reason they want the wall not put up is for the vote one person one vote maybe two maybe three it’s all good to them they don’t care it’s destroying it they want global unity anyways.

  18. When I worked for Litton Microwave in the late 70’s and early 80’s Litton hired a lot of Vietnamese Refugees. The next thing that happened was we had an outbreak of tuberculosis.

    We need a wall so we know who is entering this country and we are able to verify that they are healthy – way back when on Ellis Island we verified people were healthy before we allowed them to enter and those people were entering legally.

    People who enter the country illegally are violating the law and I see no reason to believe they will suddenly start to abide by the law.

  19. I am an immigration hardliner. Until we can control our borders and make all immigration legal, all the soft issues the Democrats demagogue need to take a back seat. But, but, but–neither Trump, nor other supporters of the wall have made the argument of why the wall would be effective. Friends of mine joke about starting a human smuggling shipping operation by sea up the Pacific Coast from Northern Mexico to Central CA to circumvent the wall. What both sides of this imbecilic debate need to do is present a comprehensive immigration structure that defines and funds an enforceable ‘legal’ immigration, account for American business’s needs for short term labor and that lays out a clear path for citizenship and criteria for asylum. Neither has. The wall may be cost and law enforcement effective but I haven’t heard those arguments–it seems like another piece of plaster on Mr. Trump’s fragile ego ‘wall’.

  20. Yup definitely I don’t know what’s wrong with the POS dumb ass liberal dumocrats! They just don’t want America too be safe because they don’t like Trump I don’t know what’s wrong with the people who keep voting these dip shits back in wake up people!!

  21. Our fore fathers are rolling in their graves as we speak about this!! One person commented on we will probably never be able to vote the Pelosi’s and schuemer’s out of office, because the system is rigged!! This is the main reason our fore fathers gave us the 2nd amendment in the constitution so we can defend our freedom’s from a tyrannical government! Trust me when I say these to Dems. have their way, while in office our freedom’s will be gone! They will destroy our constitution! They are a threat to America as we know it! May God bring peace to my Country!! Amen!!

  22. This is NOT immigration, rather it is an INVASION into our once great country!

    Time to SHUT DOWN our southern border and STOP ALL FEDERAL-AID going to foreign countries. Start charging a 25% REMITTANCE FEE ON ALL MONEY BEING SENT TO MEXICO, and other Central American countries.

    BOYCOTT MEXICO, and other Central American countries!!!

    END DACA, End Chain Migration, End Anchor babies, Make E-VERIFY MANDATORY, REDUCE the number of legal immigrants entering the USA, CLOSE LOOPHOLES in our immigration laws, End TPS, Build the Wall, and ENFORCE our current immigration laws.

    DEPORT THEM BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY IMMEDIATELY!

    We have and are being INVADED by some 30 million plus ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS, and now we MUST STOP this continued invasion in its tracks.

    The invasion started before 1986 and has continued to this day, only many times the total each year going even higher of ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS entering the US ILLEGALLY.

    Time to put our military on our southern border and finally put a STOP to this insane madness. If that means separating children from their parents in order to prosecute the ILLEGAL INVADERS, then so be it!

  23. The 4.4 Trillion Dollar is the budget for the US first of all, so 5 billion dollars represents 0.11% of that Budget, that’s point one % of the 4.4 Trillion Dollar Budget. So what is wrong with Pelosi and Schumer if they are really in favor of keeping out undesirable illegal aliens? A reminder;
    43% of ALL Food Stamps are Given to Illegals.
    95% of Warrants Issued for Murder in Los Angeles are illegals.
    Less than 2% of illegals are picking crops but 41% are on Welfare.
    More than 66% of all Births in California are to Illegals on Medi-Cal
    60% of all HUD occupied properties in the US are Illegals
    39% of all California Students are Illegals.
    75%of Los Angeles Most Wanted Criminals are Illegals.
    50% of All Gang Members are Illegals
    U.S. Taxpayers are Footing the Bill for All.

  24. AMEN! MR. PRESIDENT!! DO NOT BACK DOWN … TIME THE DEMOCRATS LEARNED THEY WERE NOT HIRED TO DO WHAT THEY WANT, THEY DO WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT … OR … GET THE HELL OUT OF OFFICE!!
    BUILD THE WALL … BUILD THE WALL … BUILD THE WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. ‪Soros and his minions the NAZI Commie Demoncrat liberals party are responsible for this treasonous act against the sovereignty of the United States!Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law these NAZI Commie Demoncrat libs post haste, President Trump!‬

  26. Pelosi and Shummer need to be gone – vote them out!!!
    Mr. President – build the wall or shut down our southern border – make our country safe!
    Your next mission Sir – balance the U S budget – let’s get realistic and make this country Gr8 again!

  27. I make Michael Kelly words mine too,

    Pelosi and Shummer need to be gone – vote them out!!!
    Mr. President – build the wall or shut down our southern border – make our country safe!
    Your next mission Sir – balance the U S budget – let’s get realistic and make this country Gr8 again!

  28. I support the President in shutting down the border. The DEMOCRATS care more about people outside our borders than they do about their own people, yes even those that voted for them. As a matter of fact Democrats only care about themselves not the Nation as a Whole. Any group of elected officials that refuse to have a conference to discuss the matters are childish and should not be in office. When NANCY offered ONE DOLLAR for the wall she actually said that the American people were only worth ONE DOLLAR, really! The Democrats support foreign countries more than they support their own, it is time for CHUCK and NANCY to either truly address this matter or step aside. The late night talk show HOSTS (All of them) are jerks and I have simply chosen not to watch any of their shows. Johnny Carson would never have supported such actions. As for FAKE NEWS, Trump is much to polite, I have more choice words.

    BUILD WHATEVER JUST SEAL OFF THE SOUTHERN BORDER. The only thing that is immoral is Chuck and Nancy.

    I will never vote for a DEMOCRAT in the future, not even for Dog Catcher!

  29. Progressive/socialists (primarily elite democrats with not just a few elite republicans) must have illegals cued up to be fast tracked to voter status if they want to politically survive.
    With the economy functioning at record highs, unemployment at record lows & a tax reduction for nearly all tax paying individuals becoming evident April 15th, the lefts voter base is deserting in droves.
    The old guard political elite, of all stripes, have no choice, they must import a new class of impoverished voters to replace the working citizens they have spurned for the last half century.
