Do We Really Need a Border Wall? with Doug Massey

The US-Mexico border is the most militarized border in the world and it comes at an immense cost: each year American taxpayers spend over 4.8 billion dollars on Border Patrol and another 8.4 billion on Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Is this southern border really worth all of the taxes we pour into it? Absolutely not. America’s fetishization of border security has never worked throughout history, and the pinnacle of its waste, Trump’s border wall, accomplishes nothing. Dr. Doug Massey explains.
