A group of illegal immigrants breached a pre-Trump version of the border wall in California and drove a stolen truck through the hole, trying to make a ‘brazen’ break for it into the US. US border agents arrested the the driver and 15 passengers, all of whom were from Mexico, except for a man and woman from Guatemala. The border wall in Campo consists of landing mat fencing erected years ago, however, even Trump’s new fencing is not impregnable.

 

 

A group of illegal immigrants breached a pre-Trump version of the border wall in California and drove a truck through the hole, trying to make a “brazen” break for it into the U.S., agents reported Thursday.

The breach happened Wednesday afternoon when a stolen Dodge 4500 utility truck busted through the hole near Campo, California, where the border wall consists of landing mat fencing erected years ago. That’s the type of fencing the Border Patrol is trying to replace with President Trump’s more modern version.

Agents caught up to the migrants after one of them was spotted with bolt cutters trying to cut a lock on a private residence gate, and then spotted the truck that had broken through the wall. They tried to stop the truck but the driver fled.

 

A short pursuit ended with the migrants bailing out of the truck.

Agents managed to round up the driver and 15 passengers: nine Mexican males ranging in age from 15 to 53, five Mexican women from 18 to 40, and two Guatemalans, a 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman.

“…even Trump’s new fencing is not impregnable” ? Trump’s “fencing” is pretty significant. What these guys cut through was insubstantial by comparison.

I’m curious, wouldn’t an electric fence along the border be much more of a deterrent? It wouldn’t have to be so huge or so dense. Nobody would be able to sneak through.
