Hungary Has Built a Wall, And Cut Illegal Immigration by Over 99 Percent by The Elephant's Child

Hungary, fiercely resisting the European Union’s order to freely admit asylum-seekers, has built a wall. Observing the problems in Germany and Sweden and the 2015 Paris terrorists who made their way through Hungary with some deadly consequences, Hungary  has built twin fences, with frequent watchtowers, manned with thousands of newly recruited border guards. It was faster than building a solid wall, but illegal immigration has slowed dramatically. The fences have caused illegal immigration to collapse from 391,000 in 2015 to 18,236 in 2016 — to just 1,184 in 2017.

After Germany’s Angela Merkel welcomed migrants, announced that there was “no limit” to the number of asylum-seekers that Germany would accept, the flow increased to a torrent. Sweden has been called a “failed state”. Migrants often claim to be “children” to get asylum, but they are well into their twenties. Setting cars on fire seems to be a popular pastime. There are “no go” zones, more than 60, where ambulances must be accompanied by police. Rape is common and even small children, both boys and girls, are raped.

It seems to be a matter of mindset, and language. There is great fear of being called “racist” or “Islamophobic,” though the nation will not admit the disastrous Islamization. Unpleasant news is whitewashed. The Swedes have chosen a path of cultural and societal suicide that is probably the worst in Europe. There are 200 criminal networks, with an estimated 5,000 members. The government is in complete denial, the legal system punishes those who tell the truth, and the major TV, radio and print outlets parrot the government line and ignore uncomfortable news developments. How then can they avoid the clear indication that the “migrants” intend to make Sweden an Islamic country, subject to Sharia law? The government prefers to think of a multicultural idyll. Admitting that you were wrong is far too difficult. Swedish judges care more about the safety of foreign rapists than the safety of Swedish children. They refuse to return these monsters to their own countries for fear that they might be put in danger. It is complete denial.

The UN has slammed Hungary and their “very clear intention” to halt illegal immigration, and criticized their border wall for “looking unwelcoming.” Well, yes. Exactly. That is the object.



A Beacon of Liberty For The World by The Elephant's Child

Illegal immigration was down sharply after Donald Trump was inaugurated, with his commitment to building a wall and cutting back on illegal immigration. As the talk of amnesty for the DACA group has grown, immigration has been increasing sharply—up by 22% in August (a 100% increase from April). It has doubled in just 4 months. There are no overall statistics, but those apprehended by ICE and the Border Patrol give a rough estimate for the total flow.

Among those apprehended, there are lots of family groups—parents and children. So we can expect that we have another bunch of “childhood arrivals” Do they get to stay too? If not, “cruel”, and “no fair.”

Most parents have no real guide to parenting beyond how they were raised, what their friends are doing or not doing, and what they read in the news.What most moms learn gradually and often painfully, is that “Well just this once” is a very bad idea. If you have rules, then they have to be rules and obeyed, otherwise they are only a sham.

The fact that some people oppose open borders, oppose DACA, and want a wall is presumed to be clear evidence that they are white supremacists and their opposition to illegals is racist, because some Central and South Americans have brown skins. Has nothing to do with the fact that the average cost of deporting someone was $10,954 in 2016. Or the crimes and drugs brought along with illegal aliens. Or the families who have lost a loved one, murdered by an illegal alien. Nice people have sanctuary cities, to keep criminal illegal aliens from being deported.

I think I may speak for millions of Americans who believe that American citizenship is something special, and should be difficult to reach, because you prize something more if you have to work hard to get it. Our Constitutional freedoms are unique in the world and require constant defense from those who prefer a welfare state that gives you stuff. We seem to have brought forth a generation that has no understanding of the rarity and importance of being able to say out loud what you believe in, and to publicly challenge your government when it has gone astray. It’s very easy for our elected officials to come to think that they are the important ones and forget that they work for us, and can be dismissed.
