Illegal Aliens Scale Border Fence as MSNBC Reports on Wall Construction (VIDEO)
In the middle of MSNBC’s report on President Trump’s wall construction, illegal aliens jumped over the U.S.-Mexico border fence near San Diego.
“What happened? The people are crossing!” MSNBC’S Jacob Soboroff pointed out as U.S. border patrol apprehended the border jumpers.
The border agent casually explained dealing with illegal aliens hoping the “reality of everyday border enforcement.”
“It plays out on a regular basis for us,” he added.
President Trump is one step closer to fulfilling one of his core campaign promises; building a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Eight border wall prototypes are currently under construction in San Diego, California. For the first time, the press has been granted access to cover the construction.
AZ Central reports:
The construction site is about 2 miles east of San Diego’s Otay Mesa border crossing, in the foothills of the Otay Mountains.
At 30 feet, the designs dwarf the primary fence that currently marks the international boundary — it’s made of rusted Vietnam War-era landing mats. They are nearly twice the height of the secondary metal-mesh fence, which ends near where the prototypes are being built.
Their height, officials said, is intended to make a statement to criminals and would-be unauthorized crossers: Stay away.
“The 30 feet is very impressive,” said Mario Villareal, the division chief for the San Diego Sector Border Patrol. “What we’re trying to accomplish is by putting tactical infrastructure on the border, by having all-weather roads, by putting Border Patrol agents on the immediate border is the deterrence.”
Whether the border-wall prototypes keep people away, will be closely scrutinized in the coming weeks. After they are done, CBP will move to the “test and evaluation” of each of the eight structures.
On the subject of illegal aliens potentially climbing the wall, CBP revealed it would be testing all prototypes and combine the best qualities of each to form a ‘super-wall.’
“That is something that not only CBP will be looking at, but our engineers, is what is the best utility along the Southwest border?”, said Mario Villareal, the division chief for the San Diego Sector Border Patrol.
