I present the border between Spain and Morocco, aka Europe and Africa…
Sorry, but all both sets of images are completely misleading.
First set of images
The first set of images does indeed show a picture of the US/Mexico border and the border of the Netherlands and Belgium. However, there are several things left out of context for it. First, the US and Mexico have a major smuggling problem and cartels, which both countries want to inhibit as much a possible. Several cities in Mexico are basically run by cartels, which have been weakened ever since the US started having strict border patrol and law enforcement. Getting rid of the crime and smuggling will help improve Mexico’s economy, and help the entire country recover to where they won’t need to emigrate to search for work.
Furthermore, do you know why the border between Belgium and Holland is like that? It has to do with a bit of history. That’s a specific city named Baarle-Hertog that’s divided up between Holland and Belgium due to land feuds several hundred years ago. The land was divided up by the rulers at the time. What should be two continuous cities is actually two cities intertwined. There are arbitrary borders running everywhere, sometimes through people’s shops, houses, and even a bank. It caused an unusual incident because of a money laundering scheme. Since a bank had its safe in the Netherlands, Belgian authorities couldn’t do anything, and Dutch police couldn’t enter the bank since it was in Belgian territory. Since neither could enforce laws, the bank could launder drug money. The city has to be divided up like that so you don’t have to go through border patrol to get to the kitchen in your house, or to the check out at a grocery store. Here’s a map of the city:
You can see why not having walled off borders would be a thing that’s needed. It would not only be inconvenient, but could cripple the city if every time you wanted to go somewhere, you had to go through security checkpoints.
Second set of images
Again, your caption is misleading. While it is technically a Spanish city, it is in the country of Morocco, on the same continent of Africa, not Europe as you have suggested. It’s a small city named Melilla, left over from colonial days. Due to the fact that Spain an Morocco are less than 10 miles apart, it was considered prudent to have an enclave kept there. Morocco has many similar problems that Mexico does, with violence and smuggling in the country. The UN does not even recognize the border, it’s simply a demilitarized area. And, even then, Amnesty International has tried to take action against the fence because Spain has been dumping political refugees in the Sahara desert if they are caught trying to bypass the fence, or are camping near it. Basically, it’s an illegal border around a city that should rightfully belong to the country of Morocco. The only reason it exists is because of a lack of enforcement.
