On Monday night Mark Morgan, the Acting Chief of Customs and Border Protection, joined Lou Dobbs to discuss the report.
Morgan says the Washington Examiner‘s report is ABSOLUTELY FALSE and that miles and miles of wall have been built.
Mark Morgan: Lou let me tell the American people the facts. Right now there has been miles and miles of new wall being built. Right now 52 miles at strategic locations in El Centro, El Paso, San Diego. The list goes on. 52 miles have replaced old, dilapidated, ineffective wall. If you ask the people of the border patrol, each mile is absolutely new wall. Right now under construction is another 50 miles of replacement border of old dilapidated plus 13 linear new miles. In addition to that Lou, we have another approximately 100 miles of new wall that has been approved funded and we’re getting ready to construct.
