    The United States Border Patrol (USBP) has a substantial history as our nation’s first line of defense against illegal migration. Its fundamental intent was to curb the illegal entry of aliens, contraband, and the flow of forbidden alcohol from Canada and Mexico into the United States. The USBP was founded in 1924, and was established in El Paso, Texas, and Detroit, Michigan. Under the influence of the Immigration Act, it was approved by Congress on May 28, 1924. The United States Border Patrol was created as a uniformed law enforcement agency of the Immigration Bureau. Today, the USBP’s primary mission is to identify and avert the entry of weapons of mass destruction,…

    Border Fence

    • 996 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The U.S border with Mexico spans almost 2,000 miles from the states of California to Texas, and illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and other security breaches along the border have been issues of growing concern for decades. After September 11, 2001 the call to secure American borders increased and the idea of expanding physical layers of security along the Mexican border began to gain serious importance in the minds of lawmakers. Signed into law by Ex-President George W. Bush, the Secure Fence Act in 2006 mandated the construction of almost 700 miles of barrier fence along the Mexican border; proponents of the physical fence believe that the barrier will act as a strategic impediment for those who wish to cross the border from Mexico into the United States illegally. While the wall proposed is 700 miles long, the US-Mexico border is roughly 2,000 miles long. This means illegal immigrants will simple try to cross over the two-thirds of the border that is not covered by the fence. A fence along the US-Mexico border should not be built as it will not stop illegal immigrants from entering the United States.…

    With the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo on February 2, 1848, the border dividing the Mexican people was formed. The Mexican border means various things to different people. To date, 600 miles of border wall has already been built. This wall would extend from California, to El Paso, to the valley. The first reason given by the government for construction of the wall was to prevent terrorist attacks, the next was to keep illegal Mexicans out, and the most current one is to combat the drug smuggling into the United States. For some Mexicans and Mexican Americans, the border poses threats, and for others, it establishes possibilities for oneself and one’s family.…

    The United States of America is plagued by many problems—including the infamous Border Wars waged by highly skilled and trained Border Patrol agents. Forget politics and the belief that we ought to bar people from entering the country illegally or that we should welcome all people. Just know the facts: the border (mostly the southern border) is dangerous—prone to smugglers smuggling in human cargo (often children) and drugs.…

    Border Patrol

    “Smugglers today are more determined and potentially more violent and destructive than ever. They’ll do almost anything to protect their contraband, avoid being apprehended, and maintain ‘control’ of their trails out of, and back into, Mexico. They’re outwardly hostile toward all U.S. law enforcement and authority, as well as rival ‘gangs’ vying for the routes and contracts with cartels, and anyone else that might ‘get in their way.’ Those of us that live and work in remote smuggling corridors are the most vulnerable. We are confronted with threats, damage & destruction of our property, theft, break-ins, and serious disruption of our necessary ranch work almost daily. Costs to ranch within 50 miles of the U.S./Mexico border are double and sometimes triple what it costs to operate elsewhere. We’re being driven out of business and away from our homesteads. Lethal violence is a daily menace we’re forced to live with, and the senseless murders of our neighbors go unsolved. U.S. federal policies, regulations, and border enforcement strategies are accomplices, while the lost peace, security and freedoms of ranchers and rural residents in the area seem to be ‘written-off’ as ‘collateral damage.’” Gary Thrasher.…

    In the name of national security and immigration regulation, the United States has undertaken a massive project to build physical barriers along portions of the border dividing the United States and Mexico. Yet, there is some disparagement surrounding the concept of outspreading the border fence. However, research has shown that border fencing is not only an achievable option, but is also more successful and safer than other forms of deterrence.…

    I feel that border security should be a priority and it is important to me because of the consequences we are currently suffering from and will continue to suffer from. We have decades of children that will depend on us to resolve these issues now rather than lay the burden on them. Even if Border Security is dealt with successfully, the radical terrorist threat will continue and will be able to be dealt with more easily because of the progress we will be able to make at home domestically as well. Securing our nearly 6000 miles of border between just the Canadian and Mexican borders not including our coastal shores and ports will be vital in many ways, such as national security and for a prosperous America.…
