Default European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migr

Full title
European Union (EU) countries which constructed border fences in response to the migrant crisis have seen a collapse in illegal migration, while unprotected states have seen it increase.

We are told border walls don't work, build a 20 foot high wall and the illegal immigrant will be magically equipped with a 21 foot ladder. Of course the other 21 foot ladder to get down the other side nor the logistics of hauling and positioning the ladders is never mentioned. But wait, what has happened when the sophisticated governments of Europe have built border walls?

Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, reported drastic falls in illegal immigration for countries which have constructed border defences in its Risk Analysis for 2017.
Tightening border security, including physical barriers has been so effective and popular even European politicians have had to reverse course from their opposition.

Quote:
Hungary, which led the charge on strong borders, was able to cut illegal crossings from Serbia to 25,000 – a massive drop from the 2015 high of 200,000.

Neighbouring Croatia condemned Hungary’s robust stance at the time, with then Prime Minister Zoran Milanović promising his country would not follow suit.

“We are ready to accept and direct those people,” he said, adding that “barbed wire in Europe in the 21st century is not an answer, it’s a threat”.

Just days later, however, Milanović completely reversed his stance, the country having been inundated with thousands of migrants.

“We cannot register and accommodate these people any longer,” he said. “They will get food, water and medical help, and then they can move on. The European Union must know that Croatia will not become a migrant ‘hotspot’. We have hearts, but we also have heads.”

Croatia quietly joined Hungary in constructing what Frontex describes as “a technical obstacle” along its Serbian border. As a consequence, illegal migration via this route plummetted from 500,000 in 2015 to just 100,000 in 2016.
Of course the US sees to the immediate needs of illegal border crossers but we do not have the option of moving them along to another country. That's why a border wall makes sense.

Border security is another policy agreement with the Europeans debunking the claim of Trump destroying US leadership in the world.
