Countries building border walls

Countries building border walls

So America can't......

Israel will lend its counter-terrorism expertise to Kenya by helping the African country build a security wall along its border with Somalia, the UK’s The Times reported on Thursday.

Nairobi is seeking assistance from the Jewish state to construct a 440-mile barricade to prevent Somali terrorists from infiltrating the country. Israel itself is in the process of building a security fence along its southern border with Jordan — expanding the fence located alongside the Sinai peninsula — and has plans to build a massive concrete wall that extends underground, to prevent terrorists from the Gaza Strip from infiltrating the country through tunnels.

There is already an almost finished wall between Mexico and the USA or did you mean between Canada and the USA ?
The latter is soon to be ready.

The wall ( not totally finished yet ) and the border security needs improvement and the wall doesn't come without complications and heartbreaks for some.

This Is What the U.S.-Mexico Border Wall Actually Looks Like

Once-popular golf course falls victim to controversial border wall, drug cartel battles

Several years have passed since the roughly 56 miles of fence and wall were installed across the Rio Grande Valley, slicing through communities, agricultural land and wildlife refuges. And the fierce struggle to stop it has mostly faded.

Yet the demise of Lucio’s business is seen by observers as a poignant reminder of the enduring effect the fence has had on border communities, especially as leading Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has rekindled the contentious debate with his proposal to continue building a wall along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico.

“I think it’s really unfortunate that the community’s recreational spaces were sacrificed for a symbolic effort to look tough on immigration,” said Denise Gilman, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law and a member of the UT Working Group on Human Rights and the Border Wall. “It takes its toll on people’s psyche.”

So you show a few miles of fence. It's 2,000 miles of open border.....people from around the world are sneaking in, instead of getting in line and do it properly....

Heart breaks for some...maybe ask Americans who have seen the criminal element come across the border illegally.....

What is your point? What do the Americans have to do with this topic in Kenya?

Britain to build wall.....more countries building walls to control the flood of undocumented migrants.

GREAT WALL OF CALAIS: Britain to build HUGE barrier amid predicted Brexit migrant surge

BRITAIN is to build an enormous wall around the port of Calais amid a surge in migrant attempts to cross the Channel following the Brexit vote.

A vast concrete barrier will be put up as signs migrants are mobilising for a mass bid to reach the UK before we leave the EU for good.

It is being rushed through after the number of migrant incursions were said to have rocketed by more than sevenfold in the weeks surrounding the decision to quit the Brussels club.

The Brexit vote has caused uncertainty among migrants looking to sneak into Britain, with many fearing the UK’s withdrawal from the EU and subsequent beefing up of border security could make it more difficult.

Britain will foot the 2.7 million euro (£1.9m) bill for the towering wall, which will stand at four metres high and will stretch for more than a kilometer along the main dual carriageway to the port.

At the same time we are exploring other planets to relocate to in the future we are building walls to separate ourselves. Very sad. I say we do away with borders completely, integrate ourselves and see what comes out in the wash.

Well in your mind it should workout...but in some countries that experimented with multi-multiculturalism...it's been a failure and disaster.....

This is for you to read....and how your utopia will turnout.....
