The only sense in which those who say fences don’t work are right is this: To be of full effect they must be backed up by defense in depth. A national will to shun scofflaw migrants must exist. A healthy nation ought deny them benefits, and encourage, even enforce, their exit.

 Israel has used all these tactics in its strategy, to much success—and only muted criticism. The United States should do likewise, and withstand the shrieks of protest. We might even point out the high hypocrisy of certain critics.
