Are We Having An Ugly American Border Wall Yet?

Yeah, I know that this question has already been posted before but now it looks like reality has finally caught up with Germany.

Wall

Sorry, I meant it looks like Germany has finally caught up with reality, of course.

Germany’s police union chief has called for a fence to be built along the country’s border to stem the flow of migrants. Rainer Wendt told the “Welt am Sonntag” newspaper that other countries would then follow suit.

In an interview with the Sunday newspaper “Welt am Sonntag,” Wendt insisted that tough measures – like the construction of a fence along the border with Austria – were vital for the country “to carry out serious border controls.”

Deutschland stehe vor sozialen Unruhen, warnte der Gewerkschaftschef. Daher müsse die Notbremse gezogen werden.

PS: Thanks a lot for this link, A.K.:

Germany makes the best fences in the world and sells them everywhere. For instance, it was Munich-based Airbus Defence and Space that designed Saudi Arabia’s €3.4 billion border fence with Iraq, which works perfectly.

So when German mainstream politicians assert that fences don’t work, we should treat them the same way as Soviet economists saying in 1988 that the five-year plan has been gloriously fulfilled. If fences don’t work, why do Germans spend billions a year building and maintaining them all over Germany?
