AFA would like to know your opinion on building a wall at the U.S. southern border. We've created a three-question survey in which you can quickly and anonymously express your opinion on border security. Take the survey here.
Republican advocates for a physical wall point to the Laredo Sector of the United States Border in Laredo, TX. This area has over 150 miles without a constructed barrier between the U.S. and Mexico.
Democratic opponents of a physical wall say the Rio Grande river is a sufficient, natural barrier. Therefore, they say no wall is necessary. They say border monitoring technology is a better solution to prevent illegal aliens from crossing the southern border into the U.S.
On the other hand, President Trump and Republican leadership say a wall is a necessary, first defense against sex trafficking, as well as preventing illegal drugs and violent criminals from entering the country.
In Fiscal Year 2018, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported the arrest of 17,000 individuals with criminal records. The CBP apprehends about 21 wanted criminals every day at the southern border. For those illegal aliens already in the country, ICE officers arrested 266,000 aliens with criminal records over the past two years. These arrests included those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults and nearly 30,000 sex crimes.
Again, we would like to know your opinion on building a wall. The survey consists of three short questions in which you can quickly and anonymously express your views to AFA. Take the survey now.
