Section of Trump’s Wall topples over in high wind

Newly installed panels from the US border wall fell over in high winds Wednesday, landing on trees on the Mexican side of the border.

The area is part of an ongoing construction project to improve existing sections of the wall…

The National Weather Service reports that winds in the area gusted as high as 37 mph Wednesday. Video from CNN affiliate KYMA shows the metal panels leaning against trees adjacent to a Mexicali, Mexico, street as the wind whips up dirt from the construction site on the other side of the border.

“We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries,” said Pitones.

Keep the Fake President away from there. He produces enough wind to knock over miles of his crap wall.

    U.S. Border Patrol agents say they discovered a massive tunnel that spans the U.S.-Mexico border on Wednesday. https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/480646-border-patrol-discovers-longest-tunnel-yet-between-mexico-and-california
    The 4,309 feet tunnel starts in Tijuana and ends in the Otay Mesa warehouse district in San Diego, authorities said, according to a USA Today report. Border Patrol told the news outlet that it is the longest tunnel it has ever discovered along the Southwest border.
    The tunnel is complex, as well, according to the agency. It includes an average depth of 70 feet below ground, an elevator, an extensive rail cart system, forced air ventilation, high-voltage electrical cables and a drainage system, according to the report. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/01/29/tunnel-longest-discovered-southwest-border/4615488002/
    The second-longest tunnel in the U.S., discovered in San Diego in 2014, extended 2,966 feet, the Border Patrol said.

  2. Where there's a will says:

    Smugglers in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, have engineered camouflage hook-and-ladders made of rebar that blend in so well with the border wall that it can be hard to detect, according to U.S. Border Patrol.
    El Paso’s urban stretch of border is littered with the rusted rebar ladders at the base on both sides — ladders lying in wait on the Mexican side, ladders pulled down by border agents or abandoned by smugglers on the U.S. side. (see video)
    The ladders appear to be made with two poles of ⅜-inch rebar and four thinner poles, outfitted with steps and bent over at the end in a U, to hook on the top of the wall. It’s the sort of cubed rebar support structure used in construction in Mexico, called castillo.
    Reportedly the rebar ladders started turning up in large numbers in the El Paso sector last year in May, around the time that construction of the most recent replacement wall finished downtown. They’ve been a go-to method for scaling the fence in the urban footprint since. https://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/2020/02/14/smugglers-in-mexico-use-camouflage-ladder-to-cross-border-wall/4760798002/

    (ProPublica 7/2/20): Trump supporters funded a private border wall on the banks of the Rio Grande, helping the builder secure $1.7 billion in federal contracts. Now the “Lamborghini” of border walls is in danger of falling into the river if nothing is done, experts say. https://www.propublica.org/article/he-built-a-privately-funded-border-wall-its-already-at-risk-of-falling-down-if-not-fixed
    Last December, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., called for the Pentagon’s inspector general to review Fisher Sand and Gravel Co’s Fisher first $400 million fence contract, awarded in December over concerns of “inappropriate influence.” The audit is ongoing. https://homeland.house.gov/news/press-releases/pentagon-inspector-general-to-review-400-million-border-wall-contract-after-thompson-request
    (Washington Post 12/2/19): “A company that President Trump urged military officials to hire for border wall construction has been awarded a $400 million contract to build a span of new barrier across an Arizona wildlife refuge, according to a Defense Department announcement Monday.”
