President Trump just got the biggest gift any leader or politician can get – hard evidence that the most controversial of his proposed policies will, in fact, work.
Many people are balking at Trump’s proposed border wall to curb illegal immigration from Mexico.
The more insane among liberals say we should just open the gates and let anyone in. Others are reasonable enough to believe we need an immigration process, but claim Trump’s wall won’t work and will only cost the taxpayers’ money needlessly.
But, they are wrong.
And Hungary just proved it.
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.
