Following through on his campaign promise, President Trump is setting about to build a wall on our southern border with Mexico. This has been met with considerable opposition from some people, mostly on the left. But why?
Because this is such an emotional debate, let’s start with some basic facts. The United States has a right to determine who we allow into our country and who we do not. No one who is not an American citizen has a right to enter America. That should not have to be said, but far too many arguments against a border wall imply that the U.S. is somehow wrong for wanting to have a say in who can come in. That’s not immoral; it is necessary for a country to maintain it’s sovereignty.
