Hungary’s Great Border Barrier


Hungary’s fence shows that border fences work. At the height of the migrant crisis as many as 10,000 migrants crossed the border daily in 2015. After Hungary completed the border fence, that number dropped to a few dozen a month. Not only did it stop the tsunami of migrants, but the smaller number of migrants made it possible for Hungary to weed out phony asylum seekers and deport them.
