For the last two months, the fake news liberal media has been making all sorts of outrageous claims about progress on the border wall, including the private effort to build a wall by Brian Kolfage. There were several articles smearing Kolfage just a few weeks ago.
On top of that, one liberal “journalist” claimed that only 1.7 miles of border wall had been built under Trump!
The NextNewsNetwork however reports that 127 miles of border wall has been built under Trump as noted here:
A GateWayPundit article reports “The section of wall “We Build the Wall” focused on closes a half mile gap that existed for years between the end of the El Paso, Texas border wall and Mount Cristo Rey. The gap is across from the Mexican city of Juarez. Currently, the El Paso Sector is the second busiest sector in terms of family apprehensions/UAC’s this fiscal year. Those categories now make up the majority of Border Patrol apprehensions.”
“Kobach explained the current wall ends abruptly and then there’s gap for about half a mile between the end of that wall and Mt. Cristo Rey in New Mexico. Mount Cristo Rey sits on the west side of El Paso. Kris said, ‘The gap is a half mile wide corridor and it’s literally a parking lot on the Mexican side and then you walk five steps and you are in the parking lot on the American side. There’s no barbed wire. There’s not ANY barrier. You just walk from one parking lot to the other.’”
“In the past, groups over a hundred in size on a typical evening would often come through this particular corridor. And while the border patrol is dealing with all the people down at the bottom of the gap in the flat area the cartels would be sending drugs up on the side of the mountain with no border control interference at all.”
“The ‘We Build the Wall’ organization focused on this major gap in American security. They closed the gap that allowed the two illegal flows, the flow of illegal aliens at the bottom and the flow of drugs halfway up to the mountain.”
“Kris told us, ‘The Army Corp of Engineers said it was impossible to build the wall here. They looked at the incline that climbs 300 ft over the course of this half mile and they said it cant be built. We proved them wrong…'”
It’s good to have a private wall building operation as competition for the federal government to motivate them to work a lot faster. We also need to be suspicious of sabotage by Democrats within the government and Army Corps of Engineers. I’m sure it was no accident that a half mile gap was left in the border wall at El Paso, and Trump should start an investigation to fire and replace whoever was responsible for that.
