America Needs a Border Wall Like Houses Need Insulation
America's sovereign borders are essential to protect Americans from a different sort of intrusion - the intrusion of international terrorists and transnational criminals and fugitives. Our borders are also crucial in preventing the entry of foreign workers who would take jobs Americans need to support themselves and their families. Finally, our borders are supposed to prevent contraband from being brought into the country. That contraband includes unfathomable quantities of illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, meth, and others. It includes counterfeit prescription drugs and counterfeit parts for cars, airplanes and other devices that may endanger lives. The contraband may also include weapons and, indeed, among them weapons of mass destruction.
