I have seen a few articles and pictures that are now trying to compare immigration in the past to now. The example they are using is Ellis ISland. Was it perfect, no, but it was one point of entry and after quarantine they were allowed into the US. Much worse conditions that today. So, I got to thinking. Why is a wall on the southern border with 2-3 POE's(points of entry) not a good idea? Large facilities BUILT for this purpose.

The wall stops the illegal flow.
The POE's allow them to be processed.
Those not allowed are sent out the same door back to Mexico.

I mean, it is not like the caravans would not still show up. It is not like the kids and the adults would stop coming. Isn't the whole point of the argument that people are not being taken care of?

A win-win situation in my mind.

What could a person possibly see as wrong about this on either side?

Maybe twenty first century Lasers would be more time appropriate.

The Wall will stop criminals.

The Wall does not change or hinder LEGAL immigration.

How is the wall going to stop illegals flying into LAX or Atlanta. That's how most fly in, not over the border.

And it's not just Mexicans....or just brown people.

That's interesting information and points to the absolute pointlessness of trying to enforce immigration laws in the US.

The wall, the Ellis Island type POE's, its just a total waste of taxpayer's money and it amounts to closing the barn door after the horse has already left. The damage has already been done.

Being for the wall doesn't mean we also aren't for stopping other methods as well. All of this could be stopped with e-verify and other methods.

No one is against immigration. However, we want sane immigration policies. No country has an open door policy.

The Wall is a symbol for the far Right. They don't even care if it works or not; and it won't....

Cheap labor will always be in demand by the corporate oligarchy, and that demand will be met.

I agree. machine gun turrets with laser perimeters would be a much more up to date action. And we could credit you for the idea. What kind of idiot would want to cross through gunfire and lasers?

I must have misjudged you, this is a smart idea.

What is your solution? I only see criticism from you and nothing to counter what is actually being done. You must have a viable solution to this mess. Spit it out or stand aside.

It's not a silly idea it's common sense

the people who oppose it are paid shills and or can't think for themselves, they operate under the direction of mind control

they think we should make choices based on some kind of utopia that can't possibly exist rather than analyse and deal with the real world

It would be better than ripping babies from their parents' arms. They could do this now at border crossings.

You are bringing VISA overstays into the issue. 2 separate things. ICE is trying to knock on the doors to do this and get those staying longer out but they are being stopped.

It is also nothing to do with 'brown people'. I don't care race , religion, gender or age. Illegal is illegal.
