    "Hungary has claimed that its fences on the borders with Croatia and Serbia have helped to cut the inflow of migrants by 99.7 percent since 2015. The small inland nation now has one quarter of the length of its borders protected by a fence.

    “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 prime minister’s chief security advisor, Gyorgy Bakondi, told reporters at a press conference marking the second anniversary of the closure of the Hungarian-Serbian border on September 15."


    Hungary credits razor wire border fence for almost 100 percent drop in illegal migration

    Okay, so when we get into discussions about a border wall, we are constantly told by Democrats it's a waste of time and money They will dig under the wall, they will use ladders to jump the wall, they will create sophisticated tunnels and it won't stop drugs or illegals from entering.

    Yet Hungary found just the opposite. They claim their fence stopped almost 100% of illegals from entering their country since 2015, and they are only a quarter finished building their barriers along their borders.

    Granted, it's not a wall like Trump was talking about, but this deterrent certainly proves that a barrier of some kind indeed works. Don't let these Democrats convince you of things they have no way of proving. The proof is in the pudding.

    Make America great again......

    Everyone knows walls work. The Chinese built one thousands of miles long, with primitive hand tools, hundreds of years ago. And they still don't have any Mexicans...

    They know walls do work. That's why they hate it so bad.

    It's pretty ridiculous to suggest a well-built wall wouldn't make a meaningful impact in the effort to keep out illegals. Of course organized groups that smuggle people across the border will find ways to continue doing that despite a wall. Do people say to hell with antivirus protection because some stuff can still get through a firewall? It's a deterrent, not an absolute solution. I personally think the cost for it should come out of the defense budget. I mean, it is a wall after all.

    Okay, not a perfect solution, but I would be satisfied with a 99.7% reduction in illegals like they have. More importantly are the drugs that enter this country. Hell, even a 50% reduction would be great with me. Opioid narcotics are killing over 50,000 Americans every year.

    It wouldn't solve our illegal immigration problem, but it would definitely cut back on the amount of illegal immigrants entering the country.

    And with the cartels down there the drug running may actually kill even more Mexicans.
