President Donald Trump spent all week negotiating with Congressional Democrats about immigration.
They want him to grant amnesty to all of America’s 12 million illegal aliens, starting with the “Dreamers,” who were brought here illegally by their parents. Trump refused to budge unless the liberals fund The Wall – the full-scale barrier along the southern border that was his top campaign promise in 2016.
The Democrats don’t want to fund the wall and say that having a secure border is “not who we are.”
Too bad. Everybody needs to get used to the idea, because America’s getting a wall – one way or another.
One way to go about it is the most direct way. America could build a wall along the southern border to stop the hundreds of thousands of illegals who enter the country every single year.
Our history shows that walls work – that’s why Democrats don’t want to build them.
Congress already built a fence along a 14-mile stretch of the Mexican border 20 years ago. That area, just outside San Diego, which used to be the most active illegal alien crossing point in the whole country.
When they built the fence, the number of illegals crossing that sector fell by 95% — from 100,000 a year to 5,000.
Trump has made no secret that this wall is based on Israel’s border wall, which has reduced the number of suicide bombings and terrorist attacks inside the Jewish state.
The number of terrorist attacks inside Israel fell from 67 in 2003 to 7 in 2010.
The wall’s so effective that even 36 percent of Palestinians agree that it protects Israel from suicide bombers, according to a poll taken by the Jerusalem Media and Communications Center.
But what if the Democrats get their way? What if we don’t build that “big, beautiful wall” to control immigration?
We’ll get walled in a different way. But instead of on the border, they’ll be in our cities.
As a matter of fact, the prototypes have already rolled out – the media just didn’t tell you about them.
Several sections of this wall were unveiled in Germany last month, where police erected concrete barriers all over the country – to stop Islamic terrorists from driving into crowds of pedestrians, like they did last Christmas.
Just like during the fall of Rome, European cities are starting to act in their own self-defense. Munich, Berlin, Augsburg, and other cities have defensive walls popping up all over the place.
The city of Bochum put rows of 1.2-ton barriers around the city – then wrapped them up like Christmas gifts. But I doubt the Germans were celebrating the fact that they had to live like prisoners in their own country.
They weren’t supposed to need these, since Angela Merkel welcomed millions of Muslim immigrants to settle there. But somehow, the walls are going up nationwide – and not just in Germany.
In Merry Olde England, London’s Metropolitan Police said they installed barriers all over the city, “in response to a number of vehicle-based terrorist attacks we have sadly seen.”
And in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio put hundreds of concrete barriers in 57 different parts of one city park after a Islamic terrorist killed eight people this year.
Americans of all parties need to get the message. Walls have been used for thousands of years to defend against threats… and we’re under attack.
We can build a wall along the Mexican border and decide who comes into our country, to keep terrorists and criminal gangs like MS-13 out of our communities.
Or ,we can have open borders with Mexico and the rest of the world, grant amnesty to the millions who are already here and open the door to millions more.
In which case, we’ll hide behind walls, barriers, and gates inside our own cities to try to stop our new neighbors from killing through violent jihad and gang violence.
It’s your choice, America. Either way, you’re getting a wall.
