Well, what do you know? A border wall is going up! After all of the Democrats’ belly-aching, hate, and obstruction, Trump is making good on his promise. It took work getting it started, but don’t be surprised when the wall goes up in record time.
And it comes none too soon. Recent months have seen a marked rush to the U.S.-Mexican border. Migrants from across South America have formed caravans. They were convinced that America would just let them in—our laws be damned. That’s thanks to the toxic rhetoric of the left, who never stop slandering our president.
Also, thanks to Mexico, who refused to stop these caravans from crossing through their country.
But as the border wall goes up, illegals will be confronted with a major problem. Currently, we have parts of the border with “security fencing.” These dilapidated structures are sometimes very high. But that hasn’t stopped coyotes from scaling them to get across.
They are going to have a much harder time with Trump’s border wall and this impressive feature.
From Fox 4:
Construction started Friday on the US-Mexico border wall project at Border Field State Park, the third project in San Diego County.
The work will replace about 14 miles of scrap metal wall that stands up to 10 feet high with a wall between 18 and 30 feet tall. The new wall will also have an anti-climbing plate, Customs and Border Protection said.
While the CBP said the existing wall was effective, it was erected in the 1990s from Vietnam-era scrap metal and needed replacing to deal with what the CBP described as an increased cross-border threat.
“The construction of this new substantial wall will improve overall border security, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the public, and will enhance the atmosphere for business and commerce in the area,” Rodney Scott, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector said.
You might remember the numerous prototypes companies built for Trump’s wall. They all have various features that made them both secure and unscalable. After all, what good is a border wall, if anyone can climb over it?
Determined aliens have shown they are willing to scale anything to get into the United States. They have to, they have drugs to smuggle into our country. Big bucks are made by cartels, coyotes, and human traffickers. A silly old fence isn’t going to stop them!
Trump knows that full well. So the wall he is going with will have an anti-climbing plate that will discourage wall hoppers. This feature will make it very difficult for illegals who dare to scale the wall.
But don’t be surprised if they try. The criminal underworld is going to lose billions of dollars, once the wall is finished. Their revolving door into our country will be closed for good. They will do whatever they can to prevent that from happening.
Something tells me, though, they won’t be successful.
