Illegal Immigrants And The Necessity For Borders To Be Restricted

            America is known as the melting pot country. There is a diverse amount of people here from all different nations and from different religious backgrounds. Everyone is accepted here. An American does not have a certain "look" about them. There is a huge sense of pride to be an American. That is what makes this country so great. Immigrants were what shaped the United States back in the 1700's. With such a technologically advanced country, along with the amount of freedom the American people have, people from other countries want to migrate to the United States, where freedom of religion and of speech is allowed. But the population of the country is steadily increasing, posing the problem of over crowding. The population in the U.S. of immigrants from Mexico is rapidly escalating to be the largest immigrant group, with 54% of the six million illegal immigrants coming from the United States" neighbor, Mexico (Andreas 8). Should stricter policies be enforced for Mexican immigrants wanting to cross the border into the U.S.? Or should the amount of border patrolmen be lessened and have an open border between the two countries?.
             Along the border there is a great deal of people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, causing an uprising in illegal immigration. It is difficult to get across the border illegally, but there are several ways that these people have found to be successful. In 1993 the U.S. increased the number of patrolmen along the southwest border with "Operation Blockade" in El Paso, TX. The improved quantity of patrolmen was found to be working extremely well, it was put into effect elsewhere immediately, such as in San Diego, CA and Nogales, AZ. Along with this operation, they set up floodlights along 31 miles on the Rio Grande River. The military joined in and gave the government 180,000 metal sheets to construct a ten foot high steel wall in San Diego, and in Nogales, a fence was built that was fifteen feet in height along the border.
