2015

Trump first proposed the border wall when he announced his presidential candidacy in June 2015. It was then that he made the controversial remarks about the people emigrating from Mexico.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said on June 16, 2015. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems … They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me,” Trump said. “I’ll build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

The continental border between the U.S. and Mexico stretches for nearly 2,000 miles. The land border reaches across four states: Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.

The entire border extends from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean.


5 Billion

Trump wants Congress to approve $5 billion for the project, but Democrats are offering only $1.3 for border security.
"If we don't have border security, we'll shut down the government," Trump said on Dec. 11.


170,000

Department of Homeland Security report estimated that 170,000 people successfully entered the U.S. illegally from the southern border in 2015. That number is significantly less than the 1.7 million people estimated to have entered in 2005.


5.6 Million

Four companies were selected to build concrete prototypes of the border wall, U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced in August 2017.

Those companies are: the Caddell Construction Company of Montgomery, Ala.; Fisher Sand and Gravel of Tempe, Ariz.; Texas Sterling Construction Company of Houston, Texas; and WG Yates and Sons Construction of Philadelphia, Miss.

The prototypes will be 30 feet tall and 30 feet wide and will cost up to $500,000 to make.

The San Diego Solution

Customs and border protection statistics show numbers of apprehensions and assaults rise and fall together. 2008 was also a recent peak in apprehensions, 162,390 in the San Diego sector.

From 2005 to 2009 the yearly apprehension average was 140,516. It dropped to 39,376 between 2010 and 2014 then to 28,089 between 2015-2017.
The all-time peak for apprehensions was over 628,000 in 1986.

So what changed between 1986 and 2008, and then between 2008 and the present? Among complex factors, the introduction of the double border fence in San Diego in the 1990s seems a defining factor.

According to a 2017 U.S. Government Accountability Office report, border patrol officials believe modern pedestrian fencing reduces assaults on agents because it reduces the ability of illegal entrants to stage mass crossings.

 

The Israel Southern Border Solution: Cuts Illegal Immigration by Over 99% 

During a sometimes heated Oval Office meeting with congressional Democrats over US border security, President Trump pointed to Israel as an example to consider.

"If you really want to find out how effective a wall is, just ask Israel – 99.9 percent effective and our wall will be every bit as good as that if not better."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has praised Trump’s idea for a wall as a “great idea” and a “great success,” claiming on Twitter that his own wall “has stopped all illegal immigration.” While Israel’s wall has definitely  not stopped all illegal immigration, it has assisted in cutting it down significantly. According to statistics published by Israel’s Ministry of the Interior, 17,000 African immigrants entered the state illegally in 2011. However, in 2013, after the completion of the wall, the number fell to a mere 43.

Eight years ago, Israel faced its own border security crisis when thousands of Africans from nations such as Sudan, Ethiopia and Eritrea came across its southern border.  By 2012, more than 50,000 illegal immigrants flooded into Israel.

David Rubin

David Rubin, author of Trump and the Jews remembers the debate Israelis went through.

“They came into Israel illegally. They caused major problems in southern Tel Aviv, which was already a little run down, but the rape rate and the murder rates skyrocketed from those 55,000 illegal immigrants,” Rubin told CBN News.

"There were protests in Israel. There were a lot of people from southern Tel Aviv, those residents who were protesting,” Rubin said.

Israel’s solution?  Build a high-tech fence along its southern border. It eventually cost nearly half a billion dollars, one of the most expensive projects in Israel’s history.

Building Israel's Fence on the Egyptian Border

The fence runs more than 150 miles, stretching from the Gaza Strip to the Israeli town of Eilat on the Red Sea.

“The wall was finished in 2015.  In 2016, there were 11 illegal immigrants in Israel from that southern border.  In 2017, there were zero illegal immigrants from that southern border so I think that the evidence is clear, the wall works,” Rubin said.

According to Israel National Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, in addition to stopping the flow of illegal immigrants, the fence has helped with other key needs.

“No doubt if that wall and that fence didn’t exist there would be many more terrorist attacks and the free movement of those terrorists that are coming in from Egypt or from Sinai to Israel. We’ve now stopped that from taking place,” Rosenfeld told CBN News. 

 

The Hungary Solution: Hungary Builds a Wall, Cuts Illegal Immigration by Over 99% (Sound Familiar)
 

Hungary has slashed illegal immigration by over 99 per cent after rolling out a series of powerful border fences in response to the European migrant crisis, possibly providing a lesson as to the potential impact of constructing President Trump’s much-discussed southern wall in the U.S.

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.
