New Border Wall Works; Crossings Down and Takes Less Manpower

President Trump made building more border wall on the U.S. Southern Border, and replacing ineffective barriers, part of his campaign in 2016. He’s pushed that agenda since taking office, and has constructed about 135 miles of border.

According to the new Chief of Border Patrol Rodney Scott, it’s working.

Scott said:

“It changes everything. There is a huge return on investment.”

Scott noted that illegal crossings at San Diego have all but ended, and that patrolling the new border wall takes 150 fewer agents, which saves $28 million per year. He also pointed out that better roads along the border mean less wear and tear on border patrol vehicles, which should allow the agency to get 100,000 miles out of them before they are sold, up from 40,000 to 60,000 with the old roads.

The drug cartels are having to change tactics. Whereas they used to simply drive across the border, now they have to dig expensive tunnels, which is time-consuming and not always successful.

In an area of Texas with new wall, illegal immigrants successfully pass through 4% to 5% of the time, whereas they had been passing through with a 90% success rate.

    Put smoke in the tunnels to determine their origin.

    When the 4 to 5 % that do make it across illegally are caught they should be immediately put on a bus one way back across the border.

But the truth is President trump after he got elelcted tried to implement a emergency National Security plan , & the Democrats blocked it & him, now had thy passed it would the USA being going through this corona virus today???? , would the economy be affected, would the schools be affected? Would Americans be placed in ahrms way, would people b dying? . so tell me, it is not this President that is the blame for not having the National Security & border Security implemented, nor for not protecting the American people at this time!!!! Face facts & reality. This President Tried .

    Now if we could just stop the 4% to 5% of illegals still getting through and the drug cartels we would have it made.

    He promised to build “A Wall” not “some more wall”. He failed and you are orange-nosing the lying creep by lying for him. This is a propaganda site and does not inform at all. It lies to the unwary.

    Don’t worry the Democrats will tear down the wall as soon as they elect a President, and as stupid as the Millennials are that will be soon.
