Map: Border walls rise around the world

President Trump made his banner campaign promise to build a wall along the nation’s entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico, suggesting that he would shut down the government if Congress doesn’t fund the project.

While Trump has been criticized for the idea, and derided for his vow to make Mexico pay for it, he is far from the first modern-day leader to want to wall off his country. Since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, dozens of countries have gone on a massive barrier-building campaign, with the number of border walls soaring from 15 then to about 70 now. Many countries have decided to build walls in the wake of the Arab Spring and the Syrian refugee crisis, while others are trying to counter terrorists or fear Russian invasions.

    A border wall has been talked about for 30 years, but our Gov. doesn’t really want it, way to much money is being made by congressmen and senators, drugs, child prostitution, gun running, cheap labor, a place for people to go missing, that border has made many millions $$$ !!!

  • Walter Flatt says:

    BUILD THE WALL AND THEN START ENFORCEING THE LAWS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS, LIKE PUBLIC LAW 414, PG 2, SECTION 212 PASSED IN 1952, THAT BANS ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY.

    PRAY FOR TRUMP AND SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN. I HAVE VERIFED THE CAMPS, IF YOU DONT BELIEVE, GOOGLE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TERROR CAMPS OF THE USA. WHAT THEY WONT DO TO COVE THIS UP. PRAY FOR AMERICA.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE ALL MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA, AND ALL HIS APPOINTEES, SOROS, HILLIARY, KERRY, FORMER HEAD OF CIA AND FBI, SEVERAL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR OBAMA TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY THE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. JUST ACROSS THE LINE FROM DC???????

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

      If the law were enforced as it should have been the wall would be secondary…Barry Sotero didn’t like borders, communist usually do not want you to stay out, they want to keep you hostage…..

  • snl says:

    It is not a country, if it has no controlled borders. These walls, around the world, are to keep people out, not keep them in. All countries have to be in control of who they decide to allow to come in. Just like your home. Your door locks, for a reason.

  • American Me says:

    Walls make good neighbors.Contrary to democrats walls do work.Prime example is Israel.It stopped most of the violence coming form the Palestinians.A wall on our southern border will stop 90% of Illegal Immigration and most illegal smuggling across our border.With the wall and Border Patrol along with electronic monitoring,Drones and sensors it will make our Country much safer and secure.Build that wall Mr.President we are with you.
