    In addition to the illegal immigrant problem, the open borders also present problems with the smuggling of illegal drugs and weapons, as well as a way for terrorist to avoid passport checks at border crossings.... What is being implemented is a chain linked fence backed up with remote sensors to detect illegal crossings, and unlike the Berlin wall, does not have machine gun towers or land mine fields...

    This sounds like the Berlin wall that was built in 1961 to stop the people that tried to scape from eastern Berlin to western Berlin to find freedom.

    To solve this problem the U.S should put more people in the borders to stop the illegal immigrants and not to build a wall.

    PS: ketaro is immigrant.

    I would like to point out that the Berlin wall was built to seperate occupied sides of the same country. The US and Mexico are not the same country. While that doesn't invalidate the point, I think remembering the purpose of the Berlin wall is important here. People were shot and killed for crossing over the wall, trying to get to the American, French, and British controlled west from the Soviet sector. The Berlin wall is a wholly inappropriate metaphor, and Mexico isn't a city torn apart by a lost war.

    Though some of you seem to have forgotten, Mexico is, in fact, its own country, and a fairly big one at that. Not to mention that not only does the US suffer from illegal immigration, but Mexico does as well. They're literally losing their citizens and the support they provide. It is not a good situation for either country.

    Furthermore, building a wall may not be the answer, but the US has every right in the world, quite literally, to do it. And even if the US government didn't have that right, I think the past couple years have shown the UN to be quite powerless in what any country decides to do on its own soil, and in the case of the US, in foreign nations as well.

    "History repeats itself"

    You forgot to add the word illegal. The phrase should read "...because they think that this wall will stop the huge flow of illegal immigrants that cross the border."

    As others have mentioned, your use of the Berlin Wall analogy is completely wrong. A sovereign nation has the right to control it's borders in any way it deems necessary. If the US Government wants to build a wall on one border, it has every right to do so. That would a bit more humane than the way many nations fortify it's borders: miles of razor wire, mine fields, and machine gun placements.

    And as others have also mentioned, the wall rumor is false. The border patrol wants to add a simple chain-link fence and beef up the border patrols. As it stands now there are vast stretches of the US-Mexican border that have no fortification to stop illegal immigrants or the passage of smugglers and terrorists.
