The Democrats have been desperately trying to come up with reasons to oppose the wall which is tough because just a few years ago they supported a wall on our southern border or at least pretended to. Now, we hear insane things from Democrats like “walls don’t work”. Walls don’t work? Who could possibly even attempt to make that argument?
Another line we hear is that a wall is pointless because most illegal aliens and drug runners go through ports of entry and not across the areas where the border wall would be. First of all, we don’t know those numbers because the numbers we have are only people who we catch. Second of all, a lot of people do come across areas besides ports of entry and a recent news story just proved that.
From The Daily Wire:
Border Patrols agents seized hundreds of pounds of cocaine at an unsecured area of the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
“Customs and Border Protection said the suspects were seen loading ‘bundles of narcotics’ into an off-road-style utility vehicle outside of Garciasville, a city in Texas up against the river,” the Washington Examiner reported. “The suspects, apparently aware they had been seen, were able to ‘abruptly’ drive the vehicle into the river and escape into Mexico.”
“705 lbs. of cocaine, caltrops, evidence of sophisticated counter surveillance and a splashdown in one encounter are an obvious reminder of the need for more personnel, technology, and infrastructure in the Rio Grande Valley,” acting Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz said in a statement. “Transnational Criminal Organizations continue to exploit areas along our western corridor that accounts for more than 90 percent of our traffic.”
The incident comes as the Democratic Party has tried to claim in recent weeks that drugs do not come across the border, and only enter through ports of entry.
Gee, that’s weird.
Clearly, anyone who is familiar with the border understands a wall would make an impact.
Obama’s Border Patrol chief has been on Tucker Carlson’s show plenty of times saying that and who would know better than him?
