Why are some people angered by Trump's promise to build a wall on the southern border?


Donald Trump has promised to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico. About a third of the world's countries have a fence or wall on their border - 4 times as many as when the Berlin wall came down. Most people have a fence around their backyard at home. This question seeks to understand why some see a border wall as bad. The union representing border patrol agents has endorsed Trump.

    Thank you for your comments Paula. Oceans don't keep illegals out. We have our fair share in Hawaii. We have open borders since US statehood & are overloaded with mainland homeless & invasive species ruining our agriculture. Don't know a sol

    Thanks for your input Rae. I agree that this "wall thing" has become a personal issue for many. Trump is a disrupter. I don't know whether he'll get elected, but he is causing us to question the status quo. I'm not sure that's a bad thing.

    You didn't look up far enough, the wall is not complete across the border.
