At least 77 countries have built security walls or fences as of 2018, up from 65 in 2015. India has 1700 mile barrier on Bangladesh border-USA Today, Daily Mail

December 23, 2018

Scroll down for videos showing how easy it is to enslave US taxpayers for life. US political class is eager for drugs and illegals to get into the US from Mexico.

5/24/2018, “From 7 to 77: There’s been an explosion in building border walls since World War II, USA Today, Kim Hjelmgaard, Budapest, Hungary

“At the end of World War II, there were seven border walls or fences in the world. By the time the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, there were 15, according to Elisabeth Vallet, a geography professor at the University of Quebec-Montreal.

Today, as President Trump pushes his campaign promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico, there are at least 77 walls or fences around the world — many erected after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City and at the Pentagon….

Border walls and fences have been used throughout history to separate warring nations, protect trade routes and repel migrants and refugees….

India and Bangladesh share a 2,500-mile border, and India is nearing completion of a 1,700-mile barbed wire fence to curb immigration and smuggling….India also has a 450-mile barrier with Pakistan — a militarized “line of control” to keep out militants because of ongoing tensions between the neighboring nations….

Other notable examples:

Finland: About 450 miles of barbed wire fencing prevent reindeer from wandering across the border into Russia.

France: The mile-long wall at Calais was funded by the United Kingdom to prevent migrants from accessing the Channel Tunnel that connects Britain to continental Europe.

Morocco: A 1,700-mile sand wall fortified and surrounded by millions of land mines was built by Morocco in 1975 along disputed, ungoverned territory on its border with Western Sahara. 

Spain: More than two decades ago, the Spanish government built 20-foot concrete barriers to wall off Melilla and Ceuta, Spanish-administered enclaves in Morocco since the 15th century, to increase border security against African migrants.    

Saudi Arabia: In 2014, Saudi Arabia built a 550-mile-long wall with Iraq, a response to the rise of the Islamic State militants sweeping across parts of that country.

Turkey:  A buffer zone splits the island of Cyprus and its capital Nicosia between Turkey and Greece. Nicosia is arguably the last city in the world physically separated by a wall.”

Added: As of 2015 there were 65 countries with walls:

8/21/2015, World of walls: How 65 countries have erected fences on their borders – four times as many as when the Berlin Wall was toppled – as governments try to hold back the tide of migrants,” Daily Mail, Simon Tomlinson

“Security fears…have fuelled a new spate of wall-building around the world

A third of the world’s countries have completed or are building barriers  compared to 16 at the fall of the Berlin Wall

They include Israel’s ‘apartheid wall’, India’s 2,500-mile fence around Bangladesh and Morocco’s huge sand ‘berm'”…

Globalisation was supposed to tear down barriers, but security fears…have fuelled a new spate of wall-building across the world, with a third of the world’s countries constructing them along their borders. 

When the Berlin Wall was torn down a quarter-century ago, there were 16 border fences around the world.

Today, there are 65 either completed or under construction, according to Quebec University expert Elisabeth Vallet….

Caption for above: “Blocked: There are 65 countries either building walls, or which are already have them – including in Belfast, where they are called ‘peace lines’, as well as numerous in the Middle East, where countries are trying to protect themselves from the risk of terrorism”

Kenya, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are all constructing border fences in a bid to keep out jihadist groups next door in Somalia, Iraq and Syria.

Seven miles of barrier have already been erected along the border at Reyhanli town in Hatay province – a main point for smuggling and border-crossing from Syria – the private Dogan news agency said.

The fence in Turkey will eventually stretch for 28 miles along a key stretch of its border with Syria. 

But the Turkish wall pales into insignificance when compared to the multi-layered fence which will one day stretch 600 miles from Jordan to Kuwait along Saudi’s border with Iraq a line of defence against ISIS.”…

Very easy to get into US. As everyone knows, US political class desperately wants drugs and illegals to flood the US so installs fake fences anyone could get through from violent state of Mexico:

Below, Crossing Oct. 23, 2018, you can just walk through. Published Nov. 11, 2018, SecureBorderIntel:

“A group of suspected illegal aliens crosses the patrol road north of the International Boundary then climbs through a hole cut in a chain link fence on a private ranch. Border Patrol Agents are seen checking the area 30 minutes later.” Text from You Tube page
