Israel, Samaria, Shiloh Israel discussed on Howie Carr


Support a wall article in the Washington Times April of last year headline border patrol agents, overwhelmingly support Trump's wall. In new survey survey of six hundred agents are in two of the border patrols busiest sectors. Eighty nine percent of line agents said a wall a wall system in strategic locations is necessary to securing the border close quote. Just seven percent disagreed. Brandon. Judd, president of the national border. Patrol council says at this flatly refute a March twenty two report by Democrats on the Senate homeland committee that said the opposite. In fact, he now wants there to be an investigation into how the Democrats could have come up with that number that is so at odds with what he came up with ninety five percent of the agent surveyed said the government's inability to hold illegal immigrants while they await deportation serves as a magnet for still more illegal border crossing. This is what we call catch and release. So the agents overwhelmingly support the border wall, and how the Democrats could have concluded the opposite. They wanna know where the data is. And the Democrats have not responded now here is the former mayor of Shiloh Israel talking about what happened the first year that they built a wall. If you want to understand, whether the walls work, Israel is a tremendous example because we have two different kinds of walls that have been built in the past couple of decades. So so let's first look at the wall, Judea and Samaria. The so called West Bank, which is the mountainous region that's north of Jerusalem and south of Jerusalem. So in Judea and Samaria between between two the year two thousand in the year, two thousand five there were over one thousand terrorist attacks in Israel over one thousand people killed in terrorist attacks, I should say and there were several thousand who will wounded in terrorist attacks. Actually, I myself was wounded sodden wounded in a terrorist attack along with my three year old son who was shot in the head. So the terrorism was so intense in every day people didn't know if they were going to be able to get to work or the children were going to get the school moves a terrible situation. Israel's government decided to build the wall. Separating the major cities of Israel from Samaria and Judea. And so a wall was built part of it of concrete, and but most of it from very very strong steel. It was a high wall and barbed wire, and as well as high tech measures, and it was very very effective and cut down on terrorism in Israel cities by ninety ninety five percent, even so it was very very effective and to to this day. We don't have major terrorist attacks in the in the big cities in Israel. Now, if you look at the southern border that separates Egypt and Israel. Down there. There was a problem of illegal immigration. So the the issue was a little bit different. It was illegal immigration as opposed to terrorism, but the illegal immigration was causing a lot of crime, and and fifty five thousand immigrants came in from the southern border between the years two thousand two thousand twelve the wall was built a actually mostly fence, but you know, physical barrier very strong physical barrier on the southern border and in the first year that it was built the the entry illegal entry into Israel was cut down to almost nothing and in the year after they raise the level and was cut completely now about the wall and the type of wall, let's go back a few days ago to our Trump's exchange with that CNN. Reporter you ran your campaign promising supporters that Mexico is going to pay for the wall. Was going to be made of concrete. You just said earlier that the wall could be made of steel and right now our government is shutdown over a demand from your administration that the American taxpayer pay for the wall. So how can you say you're not failing on that promise to your supporters? Very nice question. So beautifully asked even though just answered it. You didn't excuse me. Excuse me. Are you ready? I just tell you that we just made a trade deal, and we will take in billions and billions of dollars far more than the cost of the wall to wall is peanuts compared to what the value of this trade deal is to the United States as far as concrete. I said I was going to build a wall. I never said I'm going to build a concrete. I started going to build a wall. Just so, you know, because I know you're not into the construction business. You don't understand something? We now have a great steel business. That's rebuilt in the United States steel is stronger than concrete if I build this wall or fence or anything the Democrats need to call it because I'm not into names I'm into production. I'm into something that works if I build a steel wall rather than a concrete wall, it will actually be stronger than a conquer Steelers stronger than concrete K. You could check it out. Listen, if I build a wall and the wall is made out of steel instead of concrete, I think people will like that. And here's the other good thing. I'll have it done by the United States Steel Corporation by companies in our country that are now powerful great companies, and they become powerful over the last two years because.
