Border Patrol Makes Its Case For An Expanded 'Border Barrier'

Recommended Posts

Even NPR

 

Senior Border Patrol officials are taking up President Trump's call for more miles of border barrier, pushing back against congressional Democrats who say additional fencing is unnecessary.

 

During a ride-along with the Border Patrol on Wednesday in its San Diego sector, agents made it clear that the fence deters illegal crossers.

 

"I started in the San Diego sector in 1992 and it didn't matter how many agents we lined up," said Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott. "We could not make a measurable impact on the flow [of undocumented immigrants] across the border. It wasn't until we installed barriers along the border that gave us the upper hand that we started to get control."

 

Forty-six of the 60 miles of border in the San Diego sector are currently protected by some type of barrier. Scott says in the places where he has two levels of fencing he achieves 90 percent operational control.

 

...Asked what he would tell opponents to Trump's wall, Scott said sector chiefs like him have actually been asking for more tactical barriers for years, "and all of a sudden it got unbelievably political overnight."

 

A veteran Border Patrol agent in the San Diego sector, who asked not to be named, said he and other agents are in favor of more miles of robust fencing. "Natural barriers don't work anymore. [Illegal crossers] come right through mountains and deserts now." He added, "But holding agents and federal employees hostage over this fence is crazy." He spoke on the day his CBP paycheck should have been deposited in his bank account but was not owing to the government shutdown.

They should build the wall around Ellay. Mexico had already annexed it years ago. Call it the MANSON-TRUMP line!

Why did the wall in Tijuana stop the ropes and ladders when the Caravan showed up?

I agree with this person.  Trump should stop holding American workers hostage for his stupid wall.

 

Instead, he should shut down ALL Trump-owned businesses until this negotiation is completed.  :)   That would make more sense.

Should of put those funds in your budgets that you passed over two years you dip Bad words. Republicans can't govern. They more worried about giving company's with record profits more money.

Republicans passed a bill on Dec 19 that would have opened the government.

Schumer wouldn't allow it to pass. 

 

Facts suck when you're a liberal.

two points:

1. the government WAS open on Dec.19th

2. the bill to which you refer is no longer an option.  deal with the present day reality.

 

 

oh... and did you see the good news from the REAL doctors who are treating Notorious RBG?

I sit around and obsess about how many of these ultraliberal FKn know-it-all experts have actually spent time on the border or the local area affected the most by illegal immigration.



san diego tv station cnn declined local view because of wall effectiveness

Don't think they did.

the border is equal to LA to NY

drugs come in trucks through regular checkpoints.

crossings are at a 20 years low and you brave boys in WV are whining.

who cares anyway?

get a medical degree like my young girls and you won't have to worry
