The United States border fence has helped citizens to become stronger within its force because it has helped reduce significantly human and drug trafficking in America. It helps give a sense of security. Just how there are these advantages having a border fence, there is also a negative effect towards the country like the cost of money that goes to the fence and employ border patrols. To solve theses it would be good to keep the border fence and should not be taken down.
It helps Americans to protect their country from entering or reducing problems. “The Border Fence is already making a difference”, says Chris Simcox (2012). Local reports indicate that drug trafficking has already been reduced. He said that there are “fewer vehicles in the area where the fence is under construction proving again that having a presence and taking positive steps to do something to secure the border reduces the flow of illegal aliens, potential terrorists, drug and human traffickers, murderers, rapists and thieves in these areas”.
Which, it has been getting harder for smugglers to bring in illegal drugs in or out of the country. There haves been many people getting caught trying to cross drugs in to the country and are been arrested for it. Strong border controls to keep things steady in the United States to not have many drugs that users buy. Human trafficking has been an issue that women and children are been exploit, or being sell for trade to come into the country. According, to Chris Simcox, also had said that human trafficking has been reducing and making a difference.
In the year of (2012), Ishani mentions that there are “estimates of 100,000 to 3000,000 trafficked people in the United States, including children, foreigners trafficked in to the country”. The that Statistics show that about “27 million adults and children victims of trafficking around the world, also, about 4. 5 million victims were of Sexual Exploitation, which means were abuse, sold and force them to prostitute’s” (Human Trafficking Statistics, 2011). The fence border can make a difference to stop young women and children from getting sold and be abuse.
These are trades where they get money to buy people or trade them for drugs. To hear that people are being abused and be sold to trade should be stop to this and the fence can help others from getting harm. In every home, citizens’ look for security and that’s what the border’s fence gives to America. A sense of security. It also plays with the human psyche because it keeps the United States going into total destruction if we were told not to trust our officers to keep us safe from the bad and evil. Citizens in democratic societies are less likely to be arrested for political reasons.
Fence keeps the environment is safe from gang members, criminals or random strangers who want to commit a crime. Just how there are advantages to having a border fence, there is also a negative effect towards the U. S. It takes millions of dollars to cover the costs to build and have employ border patrols. According, to Scott, N. (2011) “the US government had spent $2. 6 billion dollars too build 650 miles of border fences (p. 2)”. There’s more money to be spent to maintain it effective. For example, they have to employ more border patrols to keep more security.
According, to Scott Baker (2011) say that “the cost that goes to the deployment of 1,200 National Guard soldiers for one year is $110 million”. Overall this does not overweigh the positive effects from having the fence. Due to all the issues that the United States has; the border fence should stay up and the U. S Government should not take it down at all. It helps Americans to protect their country from entering or reducing problem like the human and drug trafficking. The fence border is effective to make the environment feel safer and have that sense of security.
