“No. No. No.” he replied after a reporter asked him if he would sign a DACA bill even if it did not include funding for building the wall on the Southern border.
“We need the wall for security, we need the wall for safety,” he said. “We need the wall from stopping drugs from pouring in.” more …
Opinion: Historically, border walls are the outcome of wars and aggression. In the 20th-21st centuries border walls are used for keeping out undesirables. The most contested wall which is not even under construction yet, is the one Donald Trump and the millions of people who elected him want to build.
When you listen to liberal progressives you could get the impression that border walls are evil and shunned by the civilized world when the exact opposite is true. Pope Francis who lives behind a gigantic wall called Trump’s wall “un-Christian”.
Did you know that some of the largest walls can be found in the Islamic world? This should not come as a surprise, since many Islamic countries are hotbeds of competing jihadist movements.
Turkey is in the process of building two border walls:
Border with Iran:
Border with Syria:
Neither of which is receiving international condemnation.
There is a 1200 kilometer fence on Iran’s Eastern borders, and 700 kilometers on Oman’s borders. Jordan is completing a 500-kilometer fence on its Syrian and Iraqi borders; Tunisia a 200-kilometer fence along its Libyan border and no one says a word.
In the two years before the fence was built, 73 Palestinian suicide bombers killed more than 330 Israelis. In fact, when the West Bank fence was approved, Israel had already built a fence surrounding the Gaza Strip that had worked – not a single suicide bomber has managed to cross Israel’s border with Gaza.

“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and having determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.” Acts 17:26
“Having determined” in the Greek is horizo, means “to separate”, to mark off by boundaries.
It is painfully obvious which boundaries the world would like to see destroyed.
