Fences and walls work. When people oppose them, they generally do so for that reason. The reason globalist Democrats and other open borders proponents are fighting against a border wall is because with walls the illegal flow shuts down.
President Trump would do well to remember that fact in his interactions with his opponents. They never want the border to be secured. They will fight every inch of ground against a wall being built. They are toying with him, playing along and buying favors and victories along the way in exchange for nothing and false promises.
George Soros is putting on the same hard push for the overrunning of Hungary that he is in the rest of Europe but Prime Minister Viktor Orban knows exactly what is going on. Instead of making a deal for riches or surrendering as a coward, the two most popular options for politicians challenged by Soros, Orban fought back. He built a barrier, a double layer fence, the poor man’s big beautiful wall.
It has worked amazingly well, cutting illegal immigration by over 99%. Government Spokesperson Zoltán Kovács held a press conference on Friday at the border crossing station in Röszke. It marked the second anniversary of the closure of the Hungarian-Serbian green border.
He noted that with the completion of the first phase of the technical barrier on September 15th, 2015, it became possible to enter the country only through legal means. There was an assault on police at the Röszke border crossing by several hundred armed “migrants” in the early days, which was repelled.
“This was the only time force had to be used to protect police officers and the Hungarian border,” Mr. Kovács stated. “There is continuous migration pressure on our borders; without the measures that are still in place today, the situation would be much worse.”
Chief Security Advisor to the prime Minister, Mr. György Bakondi, told reporters that Hungary had succeeded in establishing a solid border security system which serves the internal security of both Hungary and the European Union. He explained, “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.”
He continued, “People who attack the fence are taking a stand in favor of allowing large numbers of people to enter the country without any form of control. However, the technical barrier is not sufficient in itself; the continuous presence of a significant number of police and military personnel is also required.”
The statistics are striking. Bakondi pointed out, “The number of successful attempts to illegally cross the border fell from 391,000 in 2015 to 18,236 in 2016 and only 1,184 in 2017.
The Hungarian success should not be overlooked or discounted. It is proof that if a nation has the will to protect itself and installs even rudimentary barriers with the associated staffing levels of armed defensive personnel, border security can be achieved.
President Trump talked the right game in the election. We need to see that talk translated into action at the border. Democrats will oppose the fence no matter what he does or says. It is antithetical to who they are. He must remain determined and actively working for its construction.
Forget about making nice with Pelosi and Schumer. Make good on your promises, Mr. President. Build the border wall – don’t give away your leverage, use it.
