Description of April 4, 2019 episode: “Today I’m joined by Todd Bensman, national security fellow for the Center for Immigration Studies, to discuss the findings of his latest trip to tour Hungary’s border wall. Todd gives us the history of the great Middle Eastern migration into Europe in 2014 and how Hungary and several neighboring countries dealt with it. Yes, they built a wall, but they also had a will and the policies to make the wall effective. Each country cared about its own sovereignty, which forced a chain reaction of other countries to deal with the problem in a sensible way. He also discusses some of the successes of Australia’s conservative political party in keeping out migrants by boat.
The bottom line is that these countries believe in themselves as nations while we don’t.”
