Hungary's border fence successful at stoping illegal migration

World Tribune:
Skeptics who believe a border wall will not stop illegals from entering the United States may want to look at what’s happening in Hungary.

On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 one day to 870 the next. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.

“They don’t even try,” a local border guard told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We haven’t had a Syrian in six months.”

Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s pledge to stop illegals from flowing into the country appears to be a spectacular success.

Hungary’s 96-mile long, 14-foot tall double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence, the April 30 Daily Caller report said.

We know the fence Israel put up on its southern border also stopped illegal migration and the fence it put up to stop terrorist attacks from Palestinians also worked.  What we also now know that when Democrats say that walls don't work they are either ignorant or lying.   Their alternative border security measures would be ineffective at deterring illegal migration and would further facilitate the amnesty scam used to gain entry into the US and clog the court system while they burrow into the communities in the US.
