After Voting for Sovereignty, Great Britain Now Plans to Build a Wall

Not only are Americans listening to Donald Trump's plans for a border wall, but so are other nations.  

The United Kingdom is moving forward with plans to build a 1 kilometer wall protecting an underwater entry point from France to Britain, according to reports on Wednesday.

Officials said their goal is to stop migrants from using a tunnel in Calais, France from crossing the English Channel. 

“We are going to start building this big new wall very soon. We’ve done the fence; now we are doing a wall,” UK Home Office minister Robert Goodwill said.

Most of the port is already fenced off from a camp the “jungle.” But British officials say a wall is needed in other areas of the route.
