A:“I am not. As of what I’ve seen and read so far, would not be an effective way of preventing immigrants from coming into the United States.”

Yasmine Willis, Human Development Major

Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

A:“No. I don’t think it will be very effective. We already have a border and it doesn’t keep anyone out.”

Estrella Madrid, Child Development Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No. I came from a Hispanic background, I’m an undocumented DACA student. I don’t agree with it. We already have a wall. It’s unnecessary. People have private property and don’t want a fence in their backyards. We should increase our security, but create bridges instead of borders in the sense of criminal activity.”

Melina Martinez, Business Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“Yes. Building a wall is good. The government doesn’t [SIC] need to give more opportunity to illegal immigrants. They may take more opportunity from US citizens. The country has to work more for their own people not for other people.”

Zeng Wang, Linguistics Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No. I think it’s wrong to have borders. My grandma and grandpa moved here many years ago from Guatemala and I don’t like this idea of a wall.”

Gabby Ledesma, Art Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“Not in favor. I don’t see the point. It’s going to cause more issues than fix issues. It’s dividing the country some are in favor and some are not in favor.”

Abigail Whitenack, Liberal Arts, Math and Science Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No, ma’am. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. People are going to get over here whether it cost them their lives or not. They’re going to get here no matter what.”

Venus Perry, Business Administration Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No. It’s going to cost us a lot of money just to be a symbol that we are better and don’t want Mexicans in our country. I don’t agree because we’re a country of immigrants, a very diverse country. It’s really sad to think that they want to block tons of people to make it difficult for people to enter and exit this country. “

Vanessa Morgan, Biotechnology/ Zoology Major Emphasis

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No. There are several reasons. I think it’s going to cause friction between U.S. and the Mexican population. We are trillions of dollars in debt. They’re going to find a way over anyway and we could use that money to help our own people.”

Dottie Comet, Real Estate Major

Q: Are you in favor of the U.S. building a wall on the southern border?

“No. Taxpayers are paying for it. Walls are highly ineffective, but I do want people to come in legally. And the process for coming in legally needs to be refined.”
