Will the United States Build a Wall?

Trump’s Wall slow Trump’s Wall fast

Donald Trump, the president of the USA, wants to build a wall. He wants to build this wall on the border with Mexico. His plan is causing much anger in Mexico and the U.S.

Currently, there is only a fence on some parts of the border between the two countries. The Rio Grande River makes up about half of the border.

The wall is supposed to stop immigrants. Many people come to the U.S. without permission from Mexico. Trump wants to prevent this.

Many questions about the proposed wall are still unanswered. For example, who will pay for its construction? Trump says Mexico will pay. The President of Mexico completely rejects this idea.

The wall will be 3,100 kilometers long. That is longer than the Danube, the longest river in western Europe.

There is much criticism about Trump’s plans. Many claim that the wall will put people at risk and tear families apart.

    This is very bad to think that to build a wall between two countries.

  2. Liz Hernan says:

    A wall will help keep out criminals and terrorists. Shouldn’t good people who want to come here apply to come to the U.S. legally as others have done? What other countries allow outsiders to come without applying legally? None. Even Mexico treats its illegal immigrants more harshly than they’re treated here in the U.S. And yet Mexico criticizes the U.S. for trying to protect its borders. Looks like a double standard.

    Criminals and terrorists will find out the way to cause harm. It is true the countries are free to help themselves with the tools, guns, buildings and whatever they think is useful. But the point is that the behavior of this politician is far from a real one, that should manage the situations with the most respect and intelligence possible. Instead of that he seems like terrorist trying to cause anger and fear even in his own team.
