Do border walls work?
Yes, they do, say Israelis who built a particularly troublesome barrier six years ago in cooperation with Egypt.
Today, says Ofer Israeli, an international security expert, says it has almost completely halted the mass movement of illegal migration from Africa, other human trafficking problems and provided defense against terrorist attacks.
Human trafficking “is almost zero now,” he says.
It is one of the border barriers inspected by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen six months ago when officials in the U.S. were looking for ideas for President Trump’s Mexico wall.
