Norway building border fence with Russia, too many refugees coming through arctic

Invasion of Europe news….

Everybody wants a fence these days!

From the Independent:

Norway is building a steel fence at its arctic border with Russia after an influx of thousands of refugees last year.

The new fence, which will be around 660 feet long and 11 feet high, will stretch from the Skorskog [typo apparently, should be Storskog—ed] border point, sources in the Norwegian government told Reuters.

Construction of the fence is due to finish before winter frosts set in, making it harder to enter Norway through the forest.

Last year, Russia and Norway battled to repeatedly reject the same refugees.

Norway said it would begin sending refugees who have Russian residency permits back to Russia, arguing it had received no “satisfactory” explanation from Russia as to why it sent so many refugees to Norway rather than Finland.

  5. Here’s some news for Mexico who complains bitterly about the fence Trump wants to build….other nations are doing it already.

    GOOD FENCES MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS —-so Norway is building one. Russia is more than glad to get rid of their,s which makes it Norway’s problem now.

    So funny that these 2 countries are battling over who has to take these refugees yet Hillary wants to increase them by 550% here. How about an EXCHANGE PROGRAM where we trade the refugees for Mexicans? How many Muslim refugees is Mexico taking? Apparently they don’t like it because they cross the U.S. border frequently.

    sorry,,, but Hillary’s voters are the ultimate SUCKERS….DUH? Wouldn’t it be swell if the refugees were located right next door to them all instead of the rest of us. There ought to be a law. Let’s put their goodwill theory to the test.

    Unfortunately the fence means nothing without a coastal patrol, and they must be armed and willing to shoot if need be.

  8. I spent some time in that area in the military. BRUTAL winter conditions, and not great even in summer. Suspect I’d move south to infiltrate easier countries before I tried this place. Of course, they were facilitated by the Ruskies, too.
