The left has a problem with the border wall.
It’s not that it’s too expensive; after all, there is no such thing as a liberal program that is too expensive.
All are of such critical importance that they must be funded even at the risk of national financial ruin. Liberals want government programs to run everyone’s lives.
And Leftists aren’t opposing the wall because it won’t work, either.
No, they oppose it for the exact opposite reason – it will work, and it will work only too well.
It will thereby cut off a vital source of new voters for the Democratic Party…that is, after they’re warehoused in sanctuary cities and given voting privileges even as illegal aliens.
That’s our situation. But other countries have already taken the hint and are doing what it is necessary to save their nations from collapse.
Evidence of the successfulness of border walls can be seen in Hungary:
With the wall Hungary has built and appropriate law enforcement practices, illegal immigration has been cut by over 99%.
What we see in Hungary is a nation led by those who have the best interests of their citizens as their primary concern.
“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.
“Nevertheless, as it has been steadily reinforced illegal migration has slowed to a trickle — drawing the ire of open borders activists like billionaire financier George Soros and globalist officials at the European Union and the United Nations.”
It is failed leaders like Angela Merkel of Germany and left-wing globalists like George Soros who are determined to destroy national borders.
Of course, the largely useless United Nations, as expected, opposes national sovereignty.
So we can thank Hungary for proving that border walls virtually eliminate illegal migration. This issue is thus clear, is it not?
Those who oppose border walls favor uncontrolled migration and the ultimate destruction of the nation state.
They won’t admit, and perhaps some have not thought things through as they should, but neither of those factors changes the truth.
President Trump has it right. Build the wall.
