The Mexico-United States border stretches from the Pacific beaches in Tijuana to the Gulf of Mexico as it breaches the territory of Texas; over 1,900 miles of the southwest region in America. The majority of the terrain consists of mountainous ranges, which endures constant oscillations in temperature and weather. Due to modern political and societal constructs, this incredible region is under the pressure of ever-strengthening surveillance and protection. This begs the important question: what is the best solution to controlling fluctuations in immigration while ensuring a net positive benefit to both the Mexican and American nations? Based on critically acclaimed literature from Reverend Robin Hoover’s nonfiction memoir, “Creating Humane Borders: a migration ethic,” the issues that surround a dividing wall between the two nations are discussed, and alternative division techniques are also presented. Is a wall that spans 1,900 miles between the two countries the most effective means of separation in both contexts of moral and physical identity? In order to know for sure, all possibilities and their perceived outcomes must be considered.
