So One Person Got Over the Border Wall, but Here’s What Happened Next

Those on the Left are so quick to make fun of the president, who promised to strengthen this country and is doing so every day — they're leaving out the full story

Democrats are making fun of the fact that apparently one person got over the border wall in California recently — and how, as a result of that, it’s not secure.

But they missed the rest of the video and the fuller story.

Let’s regroup.

There were three individuals in this situation — and only one got over the wall.

Should Trump keep building the wall?

The other two stayed on the Mexico side of the border.

A border patrol truck then quickly appeared on the U.S. side — and the person who got over was caught.

Check out this video that was posted earlier this week:

A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told Business Insider that the video was taken along the El Centro Sector in Southern California in the Imperial Valley, that outlet reported.

The CBP also posted a response to the incident in a video on Twitter.

It said the border wall system worked “exactly as designed” in this particular incident, as BI also noted.

The person in the video who was able to scale the border wall was a 16-year-old male — who was then apprehended by guards, the CBP said.

Does anyone remember when groups of 10 to 20 people were climbing over or going under?

Those days are over.

This is still quite a change from the groups of hundreds of future Democrat voters simply strolling across the border through the old walls.

The fact that something isn’t 100 percent effective isn’t a reason to scrap that thing completely.

Sadly, planes still sometimes crash.

Will liberals next want to get rid of airplanes?

No one said a wall alone would work.

We need a comprehensive set of immigration reforms.
