Charles Krauthammer on Immigration and a Secure Border
If fences don’t work, why is there one around the White House?
Charles Krauthammer- If fences don’t work, why is there one around the White House? If they don’t work, why is it that the Israeli fence which separate Israel from the West Bank has cut down terror attacks within Israel by 99%. Fences work. Yes, there are parts of the border where you can’t have a fence, fine. So you don’t have it in those areas and you do heavy patrols. But there is no reason why a rich country like us cannot put a fence across — a double fence, a triple fence and patrol it all the time. That would have a tremendous impact.
Do not confuse a political strategy of open borders with an engineering challenge of building a fence.
