DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans generally favor the border wall for national security. Limiting access through the borders is believed to be an effective way to combat drug and human trafficking, terrorist movements, and illegal entry. source

AGAINST Democrats

Democrats support border security but oppose the wall as an ineffective means of regulating issues along the border. They also oppose the wall due to concerns over eminent domain, funding, and damage to local ecosystems. source
