^ I posted this before, but it seems right to do so again (with all the hype about the US-Mexico border barrier.) I don't understand why people are so against a border wall/fence between the US and Mexico. I haven't heard a concrete reason why it is bad. The following is the current list of border barriers around the world (taken from Wikipedia with sources on their website) that no one seems against (there are even several between EU member states which is like building a wall/barrier between New York and Massachusetts.) ^
