REPORT: New Border Wall Is Working – Illegal Crossings Way Down

Democrats have spent the last three years mocking the border wall or just calling it racist.

But it’s working.

In places where the new wall has gone up, illegal crossings have dropped off considerably.

The Washington Examiner reports:

New border wall blocks 90% of illegal crossings, up from just 10%

President Trump’s long-promised border wall is working.

The new chief of Border Patrol, which is under U.S. Customs and Border Protection, revealed that the parts of the new “wall system” are 90% “effective,” up from just 10% before it was built, replacing a ragtag of broken fencing.

“It changes everything,” said Chief Rodney Scott, of the 135-136 miles of new wall, roadways, and high-tech spyware. “There is a huge return on investment,” he added.

“This system is going to have a huge impact,” added Deputy Chief Raul Ortiz.

In the San Diego area, Scott said that the wall has essentially ended illegal crossings of humans and cars.

And, in an added benefit, it now requires 150 fewer border agents, a savings of $28 million in salaries and benefits, he said at a press briefing, his first since he and Ortiz took over CBP in January.

Plus, with a better border road, vehicles that once fell apart at 40,000-60,000 miles now last to 100,000 miles before they are auctioned off.

“There is return after return,” said Scott.

Trump was right and his critics were wrong.

Democrats can’t deny this is a success.
