Border Wars, Individual Rights and Public Security

            An individual right versus security for the public has been an argument that has been around since the beginning of the United States. Border security is at the tip of this argument. Many people believe that TSA and Border Patrol have gone too far with laws and regulations that they have set up and that they are stomping on both the rights of individuals as well as the rights for the United States economy to improve itself due to these laws and regulations that have been established over time. The opposition has these and other major aspects to argue into why tightened border security is necessary for the United States.
             Border Security has been an issue since both countries and cities have been established. Building a wall around a city was the first form of border security that was established, these walls were to keep the people inside of the city protected. It also formed a barrier to keep unwanted guests out of those cities and in addition created a barrier between the city and the rest of the land. Walls were built out of stone for the best protection and some spanned around a city or around a whole country. This was just the first and simplest type of border security, it was also the most cost effective type of border security and it got the job done.
             Increased border security has been a major priority for the United States due to the fear of terrorist attacks like the one that occurred on September 11th. New forms of technology are used by Customs and Border Protection to screen more passengers, vehicles, products, and people crossing into the United States. Increased border security has resulted from the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States by Al-Qaida. Nations have increased security because of the threat of terrorism. One way to protect from a terrorist attack is to prevent the terrorist or terrorist weapons from entering the country with increased border security.
