The challenge of illegal immigration is something all nations face. If your country is peaceful and prosperous, there are people who want to sneak in and exploit you.
That means you need to protect your people from those invaders. Which often includes secure barriers along the border.
And guess what? Those kinds of barriers actually work.
Just ask this one nation, that’s seen illegal immigration drop by over 99 percent.
Hungary has slashed illegal immigration by over 99 per cent after rolling out a series of powerful border fences in response to the European migrant crisis, possibly providing a lesson as to the potential impact of constructing President Trump’s much-discussed southern wall in the U.S.
Speaking on the second anniversary of the government’s move to seal Hungary’s border with Serbia — which is also an external border for the European Union — Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Chief Security Advisor, György Bakondi, announced that the fences have caused illegal immigration to collapse from 391,000 in 2015, to 18,236 in 2016, to just 1,184 in 2017.
“The system of technical barriers is the key to the success of border security, and without it, it would be impossible to stop the mass arrival of immigrants”, the security chief explained.
Hungary had to respond rapidly to the migrant influx which burst upon Europe after Germany’s Angela Merkel announced there was “no limit” on the number of asylum seekers her own country would accept, so its frontiers are defended by twin fences peppered with watchtowers and patrolled by thousands of newly recruited border guards rather than a solid wall — which would have taken longer to construct.
Wow. It’s almost as if walls DO work.
A physical barrier like a wall or secure fencing, guarded by diligent border agents, can ensure a safe border.
Regardless of what liberals say, we have a massive problem with illegal immigration in America. Illegals and criminals have exploited our Southern border for years. The crisis has harmed our economy, national security, and safety. A wall is the best measure to bring that to an end.
Opponents of the wall know that it will work. Just look at Israel and Hungary, nations that have used walls to secure their borders for years. A wall along the Mexican border would end illegal immigration, ensuring only those that want to entering the U.S. legally can do so.
So what are we waiting for? Oh right, we have cowards and crooks in D.C. that want to stop it.
It’s time that the people American people reject both republicans and democrats that are against the wall. It’s time we got back on track.
