We don't need a wall:
Roy Beck is a known liar!
Groups like FAIR and NUMBERSUSA lie to scare people and are not nice people:

Immigration does not mean people come here forever - I was an immigrant in Holland for 2 1/2 years. I worked here in the US with programmers and engineers from all over the globe:
Immigration: Someone wrote a poem about it,
The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- Emma Lazarus

I found someone that agrees with my views on immigration,
"Syrian refugees and Honduran children have as much right to become Americans as my ancestors from England and from Scotland. We're not a white country, an Anglo-Saxon country or a Christian nation. We're not the borders, or the people. We are an idea."
When I went to live in the Netherlands with my wife and young son I had to report to their Office of Immigration and get a 'Permit to Work', justifying why I was in their country working and a 'Permit to Live' for our family.
I have helped people study for the US Citizenship Test. I am not advocating an open-border, everyone-come-on-in policy. I am advocating a fair, equitable immigration policy. An awesome lady wrote a poem about it.
