Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Two illegal immigrants have been arrested after they unsuccessfully tried to climb over a newly installed section of a border wall in California. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they caught the two men trying to illegally cross over into San Diego from Mexico. Surveillance footage taken from the border showed the men trying and failing to scale the border wall.

I actually agree with the angry one! I think it's hilarious these guys got caught thanks to the wall.

I agree that a wall works.

I also think that a sea-to-sea wall, as wanted by Pres Trump is a farce.

CBP has recommendations for areas where additional wall is needed. Those recommendations are not a lot of wall. I think that the CBP-specified wall should be built.

The wall mentioned in this topic is one of the areas where the CBP has recommended a wall is needed.

I also listen to the CBP/DHS when they say that more than half of the illegal immigrants in the Country did not come in over the wall, they came in via airplane or through the gates.

I also agree with DHS/CBP when they say we need to improve how we handle those types of entrants.

Unfortunately, the Republican Congress in June 2018, working with Trump's White House (a.k.a. Stephen Miller) proposed a bill that did the above and also implemented the Four Pillars that Pres Trump said he wanted.

Yet Pres Trump tweeted he would not sign it. He gave no reason. He would not approve a bill that his own White House helped the all-Republican Congress write.

I'm of the opinion that Pres Trump wanted to keep the immigration issue alive for his use as a campaign rallying tool.

"The project replaced a decades-old border wall in San Diego"

Are you sure they were trying to scale it.
They might have been trying to pay for it.
