This Country Proves Trump is Right

For months, the lamestream media has openly mocked Donald Trump's brilliant plan to "build a great, great wall on our southern border, and have Mexico pay for it." While the latter part is in doubt, Trump's detractors argument, that walls don't work, is nothing more than a huge embarrassing lie, meant to advance 1)the aims of large multinational corporations that prefer paying low wages to foreigners and 2) liberals desperate to hand welfare and voting rights to low skilled Mexican laborers at the expense of hardworking Americans. It's also wrong. Walls do work, and one country is leading the way when it comes to protecting their residents from radical Islamists and other foreign drug smuggling smut peddlers. As the Daily Caller notes:

Several European countries have erected fences to keep migrants out, and, according to the numbers, every case appears to have a large impact.

Hungary was a popular pathway for refugees on their way to Germany during the fall. When the daily illegal border crossings were at 7,000 per day, Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to erect a fence along the border to Serbia and Croatia.

The result speaks for itself:

When the fence went up Oct. 17, the influx went down to 870 from 6,353 only a day earlier. Illegal border crossing were steadily below 40 per day throughout the rest of the month. The number picked up slightly in February, after migrants destroyed part of the fence, but it remains in the low hundreds.

This isn't rocket science, and the American people and Donald J. Trump recognize it. Now if only we can get Mexico to pay for it...

Maybe Canada would help.

Mexico won't pay for it because they are making too much money off the drugs coming into this country

If the wall would be so successful why hasn't the Secure Fence Act of 2006 fared well? If Donald is so wonderful why has he revised his wall estimate from single digit billions to double digit billions. Especially considering that the 2006 fence alone was estimated to be around 6 billion by the state dept.

All this on top of the fact that the illegal immigration has for the most part stabilized in recent years.

I think the focus needs to be on those hiring undocumented workers rather than building some wall that will cost more than the detriments of illegal immigrants.

Its going to be an interesting election/potential road to apocalypse.
