Kenya Builds Wall Along Somali Border to Keep Al-Shabaab Jihadists Out

Kenya has announced it will begin erecting a nearly 435-mile-long wall along its northeastern border with Somalia to stem the flow of jihadists from the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab.

“This wall will help us check on people like al-Shabaab from crossing to and from Somalia. We will not limit movement of other people. There is a need for joint cooperation between both countries and our leaders in dealing with terrorism, which has affected us negatively,” Kenya’s Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery told reporters in Nairobi over the weekend, according to Defense News.

He reportedly added that “the security barrier consists of a concrete wall ringed with a barbed-wire electric fence and trenches. It will also have observation posts where electronic surveillance cameras will be installed to monitor movements on either side of the border.”

Well looka there Obama, it's ok for Kenya to build a wall, but you don't want the U.S. to build one? And you don't want the U.S. Border Patrol to enforce illegal aliens crossing our borders? What a hypocrite you are and I'm so glad you are out of OUR white house come January. Vote TRUMP everyone.

How can Kenya afford such a thing, unless it's maybe made from sticks, mud, and dried cattle dung.
