    A new peer reviewed study of the impact of a section of border wall built in 2006 that is not nearly as tall as that President Trump is building, found that it reduced illegal migration in that sector by 35%.

    The article has been published in the July 2020 issue of the American Economic Journal, a scholarly journal published by the American Economic Association.

    The design of President Trump's wall is much taller and much more advanced, and so will be more effective. Also, by covering the whole border, it will not be something that migrants can try to find a way around.

    One of the most important issues in the November election will be keeping Trump in power to put the brakes on illegal immigration rather than letting open borders Democrats take over and unleashing a flood of illegal aliens into our country. NC Governor Roy Cooper has been one of the Democrats most pushing open borders and illegal immigration.
