These articles referred to Israel. At that time Israel needed an effective border fence to protect the country from terrorists and illegal infiltrators. The barrier was erected, and it works very well. It has stopped illegals from coming across an open border and minimized the infiltration to 100% effectiveness. And of course, the border is sealed to terrorists, though terrorism within the border of Israel, from Arabs living in certain areas inside the land of Israel, is still remediless. Yes, the enemies of Israel attempt, again and again, to build deep tunnels that bypass the fence but that has been ineffective for them as well. Hopefully always.
Border security fences really work, they certainly reduce illegal immigration.
Why would any country want to admit people who started life there as criminals, who broke the law and illegally entered, who are infiltrators and did not obey the law?
The Americans who do not want to see a border wall built know it works. It is only that building a wall is standing in dichotomy to their agenda, their end goal game. The more people who enter the country illegally, who depend on their handouts – government financial handouts – the more votes they may get. It is just a ruse to keep themselves in power.
Skeptics, if there are any, who believe a border wall will not stop people from illegally entering the United States may want to look at what’s happening in Israel and Hungary.
Hungary’s new border wall called a ‘spectacular success.’ Hungary erected its [new] border wall to stop illegal immigration, and this flow of unwanted people entering the country dropped from 6,000 a day to 40 only.
Does a wall to stop people setting foot in a country without applying and receiving permission to enter actually work? YES!
It is said that the very same day that Hungary’s border fence was completed, the influx of illegal migrants, mostly Muslims, entering Hungary went down from 6,353 per day to 870 the next. From there on, illegal border crossings were steadily minimized to below 40 per day. And now, in the last six months, not a single illegal migrant entered. With the Hungarian military, Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Hungarian leadership and a wall stopped the illegal entry into their country of people of unknown background and totally different culture, threatening to change the social fabric of the Hungarian nation.
When the Jewish state, Israel, erected the border wall on its south-west borderline, the influx of non-Jewish people, mostly from African continent countries, whose culture and ethos did not fit with the locals, came to a full halt. Knowing that they would be facing an effective wall, not being able to set foot inside the country stopped them from even trying.
So What Is a Border Wall, a Border Fence?
In Israel and Hungary, it is 14-foot tall double-line barbed wire fence that includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. Also, the barrier features cameras, heat sensors, and loudspeakers ready to tell these trespassers not to dare break the law of either Israel or Hungary. They dare as much as even touch the fence.
In Israel, where the fence is the country’s security lifeline, the army monitors the border fence 24/7; in Hungary, just about every police officer is part of a rotation militia monitoring the border fence at all times.
In Hungary, the plan is to train and pay more than 1,000 volunteers to deploy as “border hunters.”
Hungary went against the European Union open border policy for no other reason than to keep Hungary Hungarian. They did not want to turn their country into an Islamo-Hungarian state as the whole of Europe did. Europe is fast losing its European characteristics.
In Hungary, illegals who are caught are arrested and simply dropped off on the Serbian side of the fence. They do not as much as get a chance to try to apply for asylum unless they apply at a “transit zone.” In the transit zone, they are held in housing containers while their cases are processed.
In the United States, the transit zone is no longer working simply because the authorities are no longer able to control the overflow of the enterers. A border wall will solve much of this problem; there will be almost no border breaking.
For the past few years, many thousands of people from war-torn Syria and other Muslim and African countries made their way to the European continent.
The Wall Remedies The Broken Immigration System
The same scenario is taking place along the United States southern border. Thousands from Central and South American countries put their foot over the marked borderline and voila, they are in. Many vanish into thin air all over the inland and learn the tricks of the American social system from other illegals who arrived before them.
This is an invasion. It is not acceptable to break into a country.
Each year the United States welcomes ONE MILLION immigrants who passed the immigration requirements. It is the most generous immigration law in the entire world.
Illegal immigration is a crime in any civilized country. Do we need to claim that the United States has lost the ability to act upon its immigration laws? Lawlessness brings more lawlessness, and it changes the social fabric of the country in a very negative way.
As much as the objectors complain, as much as it may not be politically correct, it is time to admit that the only way to stop illegal border crossings is to first and fast build a fence-wall. The next step is to man it and equip it with all the necessary devices. More so, solidify the buildup of the country’s capabilities in terms of legal confines and circumstances that will be able to handle what is coming.
It is no surprise the U.S. left-leaning mainstream media will not report to the American public the stories of Israel and Hungary’s border fences. It would lead to significant support for a southern border wall and defeat their agenda.
President Trump is ready to close the border. I say, shut it, the wall will work. Never mind that America will lose the supply of Mexican avocado and there will be no guacamole to dip in.
