Should the U.S. build a wall on the Mexican border?

House Republicans approved $1.6 billion to start building President Trump's border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but the latest Rasmussen Reports survey shows the majority of voters don’t want it anymore. Illegal immigration from Mexico is at a 17-year low, and all of the border-state members of Congress oppose building a wall. But it was Trump's signature campaign promise, and many of his supporters say a wall is absolutely necessary for American security. Should we build that wall? 🏗️

Rasmussen finds that 37 percent of likely U.S. voters believe the United States should build a wall along the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration, but the majority (56 percent) do not. Many are angry that after President Trump promised Mexico would pay for it, nearly 2 billion has been set aside from the U.S. budget for the wall's construction.

Many GOP lawmakers and their constituents still strongly support the construction of a border wall and say it will address problems ranging from illegal immigration and gangs to crime and drug addiction.

But opponents of building the wall say it is just a wasteful, xenophobic way to pin the blame on immigrants for problems like unemployment, crime, and the opioid epidemic.
