Donald Trump’s Border Wall Still Sound Crazy? — Britain and Norway Building Walls — Eastern Europe About To Get A Border Guard Force as EU “Open Borders” Seems To Have Failed — Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic To Deploy EU Border Guard Force

The Brits are building a wall – and they won’t even make Mexico pay for it.

The British government has taken a chapter from Donald Trump’s campaign playbook by announcing the construction of “a big, new wall” in the northern French port of Calais to keep migrants from jumping on trucks.

“People are still getting through,” UK Immigration Minister Robert Goodwill said, The Guardian reported. “We have done the fences. Now we are doing the wall.”

The roughly half-mile, 13-foot-tall wall — part of a $23 million package of joint Anglo-French measures to tighten security at Calais – is expected to be completed by the end of the year, officials said.

The wall will be built in two sections on either side of a port approach road to protect the trucks from the migrants, who have used rocks, shopping carts and even tree trunks to try and stop the vehicles before climbing aboard.

The UK will pay for the $3 million wall, the latest barrier to be erected in Europe, which has been buckling under its biggest migrant influx in decades.

Dubbed “The Great Wall of Calais,” the concrete structure has already been assailed by local residents and mocked for sounding like a small version of The Donald’s proposed wall across the border with Mexico.

“We’re going to build a wall. Trump, no wait, I mean UK immigration minister says work to start on £1.9m Calais wall,” the Reading Green party tweeted.

“Out-Trumping Trump? Seriously? Work to begin on ‘big wall’ at Calais to block migrants,” Catherine Fieschi posted under the handle @CFieschi.

François Guennoc of Auberge des Migrants, a French aid group in Calais, said: “This wall is the latest extension to kilometres of fencing and security surveillance already in place. It will just result in people going further to get round it.

“When you put walls up anywhere in the world, people find ways to go round them. It’s a waste of money. It could make it more dangerous for people, it will push up tariffs for people smugglers and people will end up taking more risks,” he added.

Norway Builds A Wall, Because of Migrants

The Left always complains that the United States isn’t more like Europe, particularly Scandinavia, and now the joke’s on them because Norway now plans to build a border wall to halt the flow of illegal migrants pouring in from Russia.

This racist display of European white supremacy will be a 660 foot-long steel fence stretching 11 feet high and will run from the Storskog border crossing on the Norway-Russia border.

According to Lifezette, “5,500 migrants, primarily from Syria, came into Norway last year.”

Though some Refugee Welcome groups view the wall as “a very negative signal,” others see it as a much-needed remedy to an ongoing problem.

Just last year, nearly 23,000 migrants applied for refugee status in Norway, which dropped a whopping 95 percent in 2016 when the government put in place stricter border control measures.

“The gate and the fence are responsible measures,” Deputy Justice Minister Ove Vanebo told Reuters.

The Norwegian government predicts the fence will be finished sometime before this coming winter.
