DONALD TRUMP IS moving forward with his campaign promise of building a wall along the US-Mexican border.

Experts have voiced serious doubts about whether a wall would actually stem illegal immigration, or if it’s worth investing billions in such a project when there are other cost effective methods of achieving similar results.

Much of the land needed to build a wall across the 3,200 kilometer border is privately owned, implying lengthy legal proceedings.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has repeatedly said his country won’t pay for the wall, something Trump wants.

What do you think: Will the wall be built?

Poll Results:

No (8945)
