Gubmit fail or Success?

Cutting through the vertical bollards in Trump's "virtually impenetrable" wall takes mere minutes, using a $100 reciprocating saw and "extreme metal cutting" blades that sell for $10-15; once cut, the length of the bollards provides leverage to wall-cutters so they can be easily bent to allow a person to pass through them, and afterwards, the bollards can be replaced and cemented with easy-to-cut putty that border patrol officers often mistake for official repair welds (these welds are only slightly harder to cut through than the putty).

 

The gaps between the bollards also lend themselves to being defeated by cheap ladders made from rebar; once people have gone over the wall, the ladder can be passed between the bollards for use on inner, secondary walls.

 

In response, the Customs and Border Protection service have developed sophisticated countermeasures: they kick the bollards to see if they'll bend.

 

In defense of the wall design -- budgeted for more than $21b and likely to come in significantly at significantly higher total prices -- CBP says that the cut bollards only allow one person at a time through, while older barriers allowed several people through at once. However, it's more accurate to say that an individual cut bollard only admits one person, but people smugglers can cut through very large numbers of these bollards in very short time for very small sums of money.

 

The wall was paid for in part by diverting money from budgets allocated for schools for the children of active-duty American soldiers.

FOIA documents filed for CBP regarding the cuts. 

 

They have yet to be forthcoming. 

 

Patience.

The cartel guys roll up in a welding truck, use the torch to cut the steel, if they have to, then the sawzall, or the chainsaw with the diamond blade to go through the concrete.

Probably take less than 15 minutes per slat.

And why we need the military covering the border.

Bumped my old wall thread with this information.

 

The "news" is apparently fake, illegal immigration has been cut in half by Trump, and pigs can fly

I understand youtube "proof" is king with many of the Swabs.  :laugh:

 

I will take the WaPo talking with current and former CBP agents and the the fact that CBP has no comment and will not rebut the report as pretty solid.

 

Even the DIC didn't call "fake news" as he usually does at least a dozen times a day. Here is The Donald's quote when asked about smugglers cutting through the wall:

 

“We have a very powerful wall. But no matter how powerful, you can cut through anything, in all fairness.
