Build that wall! Exclusive video showing trucks pouring across the Arizona/Mexico border. What’s in those trucks? Drugs? It’s really shocking to see how open our border with Mexico really is!
In the tiny Arizona city of Douglas, a Border Patrol surveillance camera is trained on a 10-foot-high fence with Mexico. After a few seconds, footage shows a figure appearing out of nowhere and the fence suddenly opens to allow a pickup truck through. A car follows, and they speed off into adjoining neighborhoods while the makeshift gate slams shut.
While the video showing unfettered access across the Mexican border was shot during the Obama years, agents still encounter this dangerous scenario today: Ingenious border crossers using blowtorches to create gates big enough to allow trucks to pass through.
In areas where the fence is composed of steel mesh, border crossers have cut smaller holes so people can crawl across. Even areas with heavy metal bars (called bollard fencing) prove no match for a torch. Scoping out fence holes and repairing them is a full-time job for agents and welders.
This scenario is the main reason why many border agents support building a wall, not a fence.
“People were cutting through there on a daily basis and it was getting to the point where they were even doing it during the day,” the second agent said.
If not carving through the fence, others would climb over with the help of ladders or grappling hooks – or in some cases, drive over using a ramp.
