More border walls are going up in the west than ever before, yet Trump is a “racist.”
The era of “globalization” kept borders open for a while, but the 9/11 terror attacks in the U.S. dramatically turned the trend around.
The Washington Post counts 63 active border barriers across four continents. In fact, more constructions began in 2015 than any other year in history.
The walls are no longer just built in war-torn, third-world countries either. A majority of the new barriers went up in the European Union, where countries try to stem the influx of refugees.
Walls and razor-wired fences also have a proven record to work.
When the daily illegal border crossings were at 7,000 per day in Hungary last year, Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to erect a fence along the border to Serbia and Croatia.
When the fence went up Oct. 17, the influx went down to 870 from 6,353 only a day earlier. Illegal border crossing were steadily below 40 per day throughout the rest of the month.
The people here calling Trump a racist, both left and right, are globalist twitwaffles. I’m happy we have a president that doesn’t care what insults are hurled at him. He just hurls them back. That’s why he was elected.
