Advice from Israel: Build That Wall!


By Shiloh, Israel Mayor David Rubin

Thousands of migrants are ensconced on the Mexico-USA border, now even demanding extortion money – $50,000 for each migrant – to return to their home countries.

Meanwhile, President Trump is locked in a head-to-head battle with Democrat leaders Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over funding for Trump’s border wall, a conflict that may lead to a government shutdown.

Despite the rancor on both sides, is it possible that a pragmatic examination of the “wall issue” could lead to a resolution?

American-Israeli David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh and author of the new book, “Trump and the Jews” is calling on Schumer and Pelosi to learn from Israel’s valuable experience in building a similar wall. Says Mayor Rubin:

“It’s instructive to see how Israel stopped illegal immigration in its tracks. From 2010-2012, 55,000 illegal migrants – a huge number for a tiny country like Israel – had entered from Eritrea and Sudan, settling mostly in southern Tel Aviv and causing a sharp increase in murders and rapes in a city that had previously known only very minimal street crime. Under enormous grassroots pressure from the working-class residents of southern Tel Aviv and residents of other depressed towns, Israel’s government reached a decision to construct a high-tech steel wall on the Egypt–Israel border. The wall was completed over several years. In 2016, just 11 illegals managed to get through, but in 2017, after the height of the wall was raised to 25 feet, there was zero illegal immigration from that border, prompting a fact-finding visit by US Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. In conversations with the Mexican president, President Trump has cited Israel’s wall as an example of what should be done at the US-Mexico border. Is any more evidence needed?”

Suggested Questions:

What was the nature of Israel’s immigration problem and why did its government decide to build a wall?

How and when did Israel stop its own illegal immigration?

Why have Trump officials visited Israel’s wall and what have they learned?

In your new book, “Trump and the Jews”, you wrote that Stephen Miller, Trump’s senior advisor on immigration, was harshly criticized as a hypocrite by Reform rabbis for advocating limitations on immigration, even though his own grandparents, Jewish immigrants to America, had been welcomed in. Is Trump’s policy hypocritical?

Where can our viewers/listeners get a copy of “Trump and the Jews”?
