Reports indicate that a segment of newly designed wall in San Diego held strong against a migrant caravan trying to breach the border, dissuading all of them from trying to scale the structure.
Rodney Scott, chief of the San Diego Border Patrol sector, told Fox News during an interview that Mexican law enforcement had been subjected to violence at the hands of the unruly migrants, and prepared his agents accordingly.
Scott then spoke of the many holes in border security plaguing our country before dropping this gem:
I’d like to point out that not a single migrant climbed over the new border wall. We have about eight miles of border wall completed here in San Diego.
The old sections reportedly allowed some migrants to breach the border.
“The military came over the last several weeks to help us fortify different areas, Scott explained. “But if those – it’s those weak areas where we have not upgraded the infrastructure that the migrants were able to breach.”
The border patrol chief implied that using the new section as a model to fix other holes in the southern divide between Mexico and the United States would work. That a border wall, newly designed, will stop the flow of illegals into the country and force them to use designated points of entry.
Scott Has Revealed Much About the Migrant Caravan
Scott has been revealing several details about the migrant caravan that the media has been unwilling to report. Case in point is the aforementioned success of the San Diego segment of the new border wall.
Aside from that, the border chief has informed Americans that a good majority of the migrants are not seeking asylum or protection from war-torn countries – they are looking for economic opportunities.

And they’re not the peaceful migrants the mainstream media would like you to think they are either.
“What I saw on the border yesterday was not people walking up to border patrol agents and asking to claim asylum,” Scott said. “If they were truly asylum seekers they would have just walked up with their hands up and surrendered.”
Instead, they used their hands to throw rocks at border patrol agents.

Defended Use of Tear Gas
Scott also defended the use of tear gas to turn back violent migrants, turning the media’s criticism of the technique as ‘unconscionable’ back on them.
“What I find unconscionable is that people would intentionally take children into this situation,” he said during an interview. “The caravan would push women and children toward the front and then begin rocking our agents.”
They wouldn’t be able to do this if an updated, bigger, better border wall were built. They wouldn’t endanger their children, wouldn’t be able to injure agents, and wouldn’t accidentally impale themselves if lawmakers in Congress would simply listen to President Trump and build the damn wall!
On the campaign trail, Trump vowed to have his wall include a “big beautiful door” to let in legal immigrants. A wall to keep the bad people out, and a door to bring in the good people. What a concept!
