Tucker Carlson: Why Is Congress Happy To Pay For Walls In Israel But Not On The U.S. Border?


FNC's Tucker Carlson reviews Democratic claims that a border wall is too expensive and immoral:

TUCKER CARLSON: The estimated cost of a border wall is about $25 billion. That is estimated so let's say it is twice that. That is still a tiny fraction of the price of the pointless stalemate we're now waging in Afghanistan. That costs about $45 billion every year, not including the human cost. Compare that to $25 billion needed to restore sovereignty with the wall.

And yet this is strange, nobody in Washington seems to be upset about the price of the Afghanistan debacle. A lot of people here are getting rich on it and maybe that is the difference. You also hear endlessly, usually from people who live in gated communities, that walls just don't work.

But if that is true, why is Congress happy to pay for border barriers in Jordan, Tunisia, and Israel?

Nancy Pelosi says that walls are immoral, but for some reason, she is not flying to Jerusalem to lecture the Israelis about how they are wasting U.S. aid building walls that don't work. Israelis know how effective walls are, that is why they have them. Israel's wall on the Egyptian border almost completely halted illegal immigration from that country. In fact, by some measures, not one person came over once they made it taller. It turns out there is a limit to the height of ladders.

The truth, as you know and as usual, if precisely the opposite of what they're telling you.

The left fears a border wall precisely because it would work, and could keep working long after President Trump leaves office. That is why, when pressed, invariably they fall back on their signature argument: racism! Border walls are racist!

It is just projection. Look around, who is angry, who is yelling, who is hysterical? The left. Permanent Washington and their servants in the media. They're the ones who are terrified. They don't want a real debate about immigration or a lot of other mindless policies they have been benefiting from for many years. They hate Trump for forcing a debate on immigration and they hate you for agreeing with him.
