I’M A FAN OF border walls as long as they are walls to keep people out, not to keep people in, which is like a prison wall.
Do you lock your house doors at night? Sure you do. You don’t want strangers sneaking in while you snooze.
There are already many miles of walls along the southern border of the United States, so Trump’s vow to build a wall was, to a great extent, pure campaign blather.
All nations need to control their borders, and the more successful nations are in particular need of walls. The United States has been very successful, so it definitely needs walls.
Mexico is successful too in comparison with nations to its south, so a high wall along our border with Central America is very advisable. Alas, we have not built that wall.
Some people say walls don’t work, which is silly. After Israel built a wall to keep out wily Palestinians, the mayhem that Palestinians so love plummeted. Walls work.
The video illustrates beautifully how a nice, high wall along a particularly enticing stretch of the California-Mexico border reduced crime and other problems immensely.
San Diego’s wall works wonders.
Walls are sweet. Around your house. Around your nation.
