This paper introduces, discusses and analyzes the topic of border security in the United States. Specifically, it discusses whether efforts to restructure U.S. immigration policy should focus primarily on securing the nations borders or if the reformers' priority should be facilitating illegal immigrants' ability to obtain a work permit or attain U.S. citizenship.
