The federal government built the wall as an initiative to reduce the illegal migration and to provide border security. The Secure Border Initiative managed the installation of the wall. The construction of the border wall cost the federal government billions of dollars. Secure Border Initiative also proposed for the development of border protection system. The SBInet was articulated to the wall. Cameras, sensors, and radars were fixed on the SBInet to classify, identify and detect the threats regarding the illegal entry into the United States (Peter).
The illegal immigration has been the common issue that has been interfering with the United States government. Most of the terrorist have been sneaking into the United States from the borders such as Mexico and United States border (Peter). Therefore, the United States government in collaboration with Secure Border Initiative decided to build a border wall at the border of the United States and Mexico. Moreover, the drug dealer and peddlers have been crossing the border via the illegal routes. Hence, the wall acted as a barrier to secure the United States from the drugs activities.

Though it takes longer to cross the border, the illegal migrants can cross for their betterment. The patrol officers can become reluctant due to the reason that they believe no one can cross the border by climbing the wall (Ermolaeva, and Ross). With the wall the illegal emigrants can tend to take laws into their hands because they believe that illegal emigrants are being mistreated; hence they can hurt the innocent citizens.
