ABC Reporter Goes To The Border, Speechless To See What’s In The Rio Grande

A reporter with ABC News was taken aback when he traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border on Monday accompanied by a Border Patrol agent. The pair were walking in an area identified by the Border Patrol agent as having the highest traffic of illegal border crossings in his jurisdiction when the reporter got a bit more action than he bargained for.

The agent chased the smuggler down a dirt path in McAllen, Texas until he reached the river and started heading south, back to Mexico.

“Look, there’s a smuggler,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent Robert Rodriguez shouted. “I cannot go in the river to apprehend him. As long as he goes back south, I’m all right.” [Source: The Daily Wire]

The segment from ABC News comes as President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday that he wants those who illegally enter the U.S. to be immediately sent back to their home countries.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country,” Trump wrote. “When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents.”

“Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years!” Trump continued. “Immigration must be based on merit — we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!”

The ABC News segment served as a polarizing demonstration of just how easy it is for illegal immigrants to cross our porous southern border. Quite literally, they are brought across on boats, and if the smuggler is caught, all he has to do is hop back into his raft and float back to Mexico. As Border Protection agent Robert Rodriguez noted, once the migrant is back in the river, they can no longer be apprehended and are free to continue bringing hoards of other migrants across illegally.

This is precisely why we need the wall. An impenetrable structure along our southern border would solve nearly all of our immigration issues. Yes, we would still need to deal with those undocumented migrants who are already in the country. However, putting a hard stop to flow of illegal aliens coming in on a daily basis would help matters tremendously.

This was demonstrated in Southern California, where Border Patrol agents used scrap materials to build their own makeshift wall. Even this was wildly successful. President Donald Trump visited San Diego, California, in March in order to review eight massive prototypes for the wall. While he was there, his conversation with a Border Patrol Agent was captured on camera, revealing what the current wall is made of.

The unidentified agent told the president that guards in his area had built a wall out of scrap metal, having no other materials to work with, and even this makeshift barrier was 95 percent effective. “There was effectively no border in San Diego. It was a chaotic situation,” the agent told Trump. “We set it in place really just to delineate where the border was. And it changed our environment.”

There can be no doubt that President Donald Trump’s border wall will be successful — if scrap metal can keep so many undocumented immigrants at bay, the impenetrable barrier Trump’s team is working on could solve our immigration problems almost entirely. And, as the ABC News segment above demonstrated, the problems we are facing are substantial. Illegal aliens are being smuggled across the Rio Grande every hour of every day.
