JNS.org – Leading Republican presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump on Sunday mentioned Israel when commenting on his proposed wall on the US-Mexico border, which he intends as a measure to combat illegal immigration.

“You could ask Israel about walls that work. Believe me, walls work,” Trump told a rally of his supporters in Atlanta, Reuters reported.

Israel’s West Bank security fence has prevented many Palestinian terror attacks inside of Israeli territory. In addition, a fence built along the Israeli-Egyptian border in the Sinai desert has helped reduce the number of African migrants illegally entering the Jewish state. Israel has also started the construction of a $77 million fence along its border with Jordan.
