US House votes to wall up Mexico border

`The House of Representatives voted to build a wall along the US border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration.

The 260-159 voice vote on an amendment to a bill on illegal immigration “mandates the construction of specific security fencing, including lights and cameras, along the Southwest border for the purposes of gaining operational control of the border. [..]

The US border with Canada was not forgotten. The bill “includes a requirement for the Secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a study on the use of physical barriers along the Northern border.”‘
