Should We Build the Wall?
Jan. 5th, 2019
Before We Begin...
As of today, January 5th 2019, the United States government is shut down because our elected officials disagree on the answer to a single question: Should we build a wall on the border of the United States and Mexico?
This article is intended to help you answer that question. No, we will not be telling you the answer. We want you to decide for yourself.
Truly unbiased news is hard to come by these days. Instead of trying to achieve the impossible (be an unbiased news source), we instead give you multiple opinions representing both sides / biases. Imagine that your favorite professor, plucky political commentator, savvy investigative journalist, and brainy political researcher were locked in a room for 30 hours to spar over the issue. The outcome? A heavily researched pros and cons list for why we should and why we shouldn't build the wall. Which side is "right"? That's for you to decide. (Oh, and keep in mind that this pros and cons list is fact checked by two third party sources before being published). Sound interesting? Great!
