    Thus, if he behaves with any rational thinking about protecting his nation's borders, something considerably more will need to be done than has been done in the past.

    We have a Coast Guard.

    Maybe we need a Border Guard.

    That would, understandably, be a military branch.
    We have a border guard. It is called the Border Patrol.

    Great .. then let's beef it up to the level of effectiveness!
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Re: Would You Support Militarizing The Border With Mexico?

    i have zero issue closing off the border using NG troops, along with a mix of the newer technology

    i dont know what will happen to the 14-20 million illegals already here....but someone, someplace has to say enough is enough

    do i think we need to build a 30 ft fence across the entire border....no

    with technology, drones, and monitors, we should be able to close it without the fence

    we need to fix our broken visa policies......

    it shouldnt take 10-15 years to come here legally.......

    and we HAVE TO toughen the penalties on all employers who employ illegals......

    And change the role from catching to catch and release back to the other side of the line. Or better still do not tolerate them stepping over the line.

    That is nothing like the Berlin wall... why compare such tragic/severe parts of human history to something like this?

    The Berlin wall... no one was aloud in or out... people wanted to flee a country but had no means to because that country built a wall to keep it's OWN people in.

    That is a vastly different concept... you are just trying to score brownie points to hacks...

    Absolutely not. That so many people said yes is truly saddening.

    Fix our broken visa policies and allow more people to come here legally and we won't "need" militarization either.

    If you want to get to work every day, you have to have a new car every three years.

    There are more new cars sold in the capital, which is D.F., that babies are born.

    Anybody that has been to any of Mexico's big cities knows Mexico is not a third world country.

    we will still need border control

    even if we fix the visa/immigration issues, and more people get to come legally....

    there will need to be limits set.....and it still wont be enough for some

    so people will still try and cross illegally......

    no one wants to wait for anything anymore.....

    it is a "give it to me now generation......"

    we cant fix the world and all of the problems it has.....

    hell, we cant even feed, house, and clothe the ones here already

    so yes....we will need border control , and militarization of the border
