It’s small-scale proof of exactly how and why walls really DO work… and why we need to continue building them.
What is the job of a wall? They divert anyone seeking entrance to continue on until they arrive at the actual door.
It’s a pretty simple principle, right? It limits illicit entry, and redirects it to the place designed to be used for lawful entry.
Just like it does in private homes — or, in the case of the wealthy Elite — walled compounds and gated communities.
“Wednesday morning a group of 66 people, mostly family units, crossed the border where the fence ends east of Sasabe,” CBP Arizona posted with a 22-second clip on Twitter.
“Video shows the group approaching the fence and walking to the end. 30% of apprehensions in the #TusconSector are family units surrendering to #BorderPatrol.”
The black and white footage shows the large group slowly parading through the desert, casually walking around the fence to their new home in America. Most understand that U.S. immigration and asylum laws only require that they claim to be a family seeking asylum and they’ll be processed at a border patrol facility and released into the U.S. within 20 days, pending a hearing months or years in the future most never bother to attend.
The Wall did exactly what it was supposed to do. And when they got to the edge of it, they were all able to casually walk across the border, unopposed.
Construction continues on the border wall in Yuma, AZ. The process includes panel fabrication and delivery, demolition, soil conditioning and digging, trench digging, panel hoisting and installation. pic.twitter.com/00VvwipMte
