I've even seen the same old whiney Ann Coulter tweet a time or three, stating "0 miles built".
You can believe Ann, or your lying eyes:
That's from two different places, in July and August this year.
Now, fair is fair:
This is not the "Big Beautiful Wall Of Trump", prototypes of which you've seen on the news.
But what it is, I have some wee first-hand experience with.
It goes 20' up, and 10' down, set in concrete, the 4"x4" steel pipes are welded together, reinforced internally with rebar, then filled with cement, and you can't burrow under it, cut or crash through it, nor even scale it in anything like a timely manner. Plus, you'll note, unlike the raggedy steel PSP planking, you can't just vault over it, and our Border Patrol guys can see through it, so Pedro can't spend all day in the shade taking his time digging a hole just beneath the edge on the Mexican side, unseen, and then scoot past once there's a shift change.
You can tunnel under it: if you go down 20' or so, and have unlimited time and resources.
But if that's the case, you could just buy an airplane and fly over it.
What you can't do is rush it, scale it, hop over it (like those WWII tank traps being replaced in the lower video, which only stop vehicles, not people), and you can't build a half-assed ramp and drive a vehicle loaded with dope, or 50 pollos, and just go up and over and on to L.A. or Phoenix.
|Our trailcams used to catch vehicles like this every week, with 40-60 people clinging to it, cruising through desert washes offroad, headed for San Diego, Los Angeles, and Phoenix, after ramping up and over the 6-8' PSP barrier.|
Short of the sorely missed minefield, alligator moat, and machinegun towers, it's about as good as it's going to get, and it cuts down on all types of attempts by about 99.9999%, in actual practice.
And it's going up, and has been, by the mile, every day.
Hey, funny thing... ABCNNBCBS doesn't seem to want to talk much about that, do they?
So to those who think nothing's happening, or flying their Never-Trump Tard Flag proudly, you might want to get up to speed, and maybe even STFU.
By dint of non-stop videos on Lou Dobbs for two years, we (as in I and friends, personally) pissed off Dubbya so harshly in 2005 that 15 miles of this fencing exactly like what you see in those two videos went up in the area of the CA border that I was helping secure. (Just a couple of miles from where cartel smugglers killed a Border Patrol Agent before the new fence went in, btw).
Traffic went from 50k-100K crossings/yr there to nada, overnight. We've found a few blood trails where folks broke legs and crawled into the bushes trying to hide after the 20+' leap. We've found zero holes under, or through. And we haven't had a ranch fence cut in 13 years, since it went up, in an area where we were bagging 100 crossers per night in 2004, and running no-shit go-to-war combat patrols at least 100 days/year, not least of which was because of that BP shooting.
The cartels weren't playing, and neither were we.
But what we needed multiple guys to do around the clock, the wall does with one agent on a high point every 3-5 miles.
The illegals and cartels can't beat it, and they stopped trying.
And now it's growing every day, from Tijuana to Brownsville.
So maybe ease up on thinking that nothing's happening.
It is happening, and secure fencing is going up at multiple locations, and it scares the hell out of the cartels, the would-be illegal aliens, and the folks up here in both parties who want open borders, because you can't defeat that fencing with anything less than tanks and dynamite.
Just thought you oughta know.
