On Friday. Pres. Trump declared a national emergency. Based on that declaration, the president will reallocate $6.5 billion from other government programs to fund a border wall.

Immigration policy is one of the biggest issues facing America right now. It’s also one of the most contentious. Should the US build a wall along the Mexican border? Are there other immigration policy reforms the US should consider? And why does it even matter?
