Lost in the discussion about President Donald J. Trump’s proposed erection of a big beautiful wall on the Southern border – which critics say cannot be done and will not be effective – is the fact that the European Union built a wall just like the one proposed by Trump on the border of Syria and Turkey.
“The EU states have provided the government in Ankara with security and surveillance technology valued at more than 80 million euros in exchange for the protection of its borders, according to research conducted by DER SPIEGEL and the European Investigative Collaborations network (EIC),” said a report by Der Spiegel.
According to another report, “The wall runs through the provinces of Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis, Hatay, Mardin and Sirnak and incorporates physical, electronic and advanced technology layers. The physical layer includes modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks.”
The wall is 764 kilometers, or about 475 miles.
Turkey is a member of the EU, which reportedly built the wall to keep Syrians from crossing into its member nation. This is the same EU that has forced migration and refugeeism on the whole of Western Europe. Hungary even built a fence to keep migrants from streaming in unabated, and was censured by the unelected EU bureaucracy.
Meanwhile, Democrats in the United States continue with empty platitudes that “walls don’t work” and that Republicans are racists for desiring border security that would stop the flow of illegal drugs and unvetted aliens into our country.
On the contrary, the wall on the Turkish/Syrian border works quite well. As does Israel’s wall, and the one surrounding the Vatican, where the apostate Catholic pope lectures Americans about how taking in millions from the third world is God’s will.
The question remains: Why can’t the United States (or any other Western nation) have sovereign borders?

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
