The Mexico wall served as a big topic during Donald Trump’s first election and campaign. While he promised to build a wall between the US and Mexico, Trump still hasn’t achieved his goal.
What is the problem with the US – Mexico border? It is a border of more than 3,000km separating the two countries. But the border is defined not only by physical barriers. The immigration policy also separates these two countries.
The US immigration policy fails to address the issues behind illegal migration. The US spends billions of dollars on border enforcement. But the lure of work sees illegal migrants entering the country on a daily basis.
Per some estimates, more than 850,000 people enter the US from Mexico per year.
