Pssstttt, remember how the liberals moaned and groaned about how a border wall would not work? They came up with every excuse in the book as to why it would be useless and we should not build it. Guess what? They were WRONG-O!
Illegal immigration is already down by 80% in El Paso according to the Border Chief. Thank you President Trump!!
The border wall system is comprised of multiple layers that include fencing, roads, lights, and extra personnel according to the acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan.
“We’ve seen apprehensions and illegal entries and gotaways all being reduced by over 80% in that 20-mile stretch,” Morgan told the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee while discussing the Fiscal year 2021 budget. Hear him talk about it at about 36:10:
American Military News reports:
Morgan said the new system allows border agents to spot where illegal entries happen faster and make arrests or force the illegal immigrants to retreat back to Mexico.
President Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise was building the wall on the southern border. So far, only 109 miles have been constructed and almost half of that — 55 miles — has been replacement fencing, The Washington Times reported.
Some critics question the effectiveness of the wall, which border officials have frequently had to dismiss as inaccurate.
“It’s not that it’s impenetrable. But it does deny and impede long enough for Border Patrol agents to actually get there to do the apprehension and interdiction. And it works,” Morgan continued, “This is an unprecedented achievement."
The Trump administration is requesting $2 billion for additional wall funding for the 2021 fiscal year. Trump has also allocated $10 billion from the Pentagon into building the wall for the past two years.
Illegal crossings into the United States from the southern border have drastically reduced due to the increased security measures President Trump has taken, as well as deals he’s struck with Central American countries, where a significant portion of illegal immigrants originates.
While 80% is not 100%, it is still astounding and will make a HUGE difference.
Reductions of apprehensions are welcome progress, but the crisis is far from over. With peak migration season upon us, we must maintain momentum. The best way to do that is to ensure @CBP has sufficient resources, technology and manpower. pic.twitter.com/Br7BOhFMKP
