A group of border security advocates joined together at the US-Mexico border recently in order to form a “human wall” in support of President Trump’s proposed increases to security at the porous borderline.
In an area at the New Mexico border, the group formed a chain of people to show their support for bolstering border security while waving American flags and holding signs.
President Trump recently vowed to “build a Human Wall if necessary” to combat the swelling numbers of illegal migrants entering the United States, and has frequently cited the need for a border barrier.
Tremendous numbers of people are coming up through Mexico in the hopes of flooding our Southern Border. We have sent additional military. We will build a Human Wall if necessary. If we had a real Wall, this would be a non-event!

The issue of border security, specifically President Trump’s proposed border wall, has been vehemently opposed by Democrats, who claim a physical barrier is not necessary in the effort to combat drug traffickers, human smugglers, and illegal migrants.
