There are many sections of the border in TX where there is no fence, and there won't be anyone there either.

Of course they are not standing at the border where there is no wall or barrier and asking , Can we please come in. They have already slipped in during the night. .

We'll be getting some real news soon , and it won't involve Jim Acosta in any way. While trump blabs about his wall, he's shaking in his shoes.

Israel has learned that walls are not effective. They are now starting to build underground barriers because there are so many tunnels under their walls. How much do you think that will cost?

Test of steel

But nobody is there trying to saw through it, They have moved on to places where there is no wall.
They want to slip into the country to get free handouts from the leftist, why would they want to work hard at sawing through the wall. Nancy and chucky might go down there and saw a hole for them.

Test of steel prototype for border wall showed it could be sawed through
Trump has repeatedly advocated for a steel slat design for his border wall, which he described as "absolutely critical to border security" in his Oval Office address to the nation Tuesday. But Department of Homeland Security testing of a steel slat prototype proved it could be cut through with a saw, according to a report by DHS.

A photo exclusively obtained by NBC News shows the results of the test after military and Border Patrol personnel were instructed to attempt to destroy the barriers with common tools.

However, testing by DHS in late 2017 showed all eight prototypes, including the steel slats, were vulnerable to breaching, according to an internal February 2018 U.S. Customs and Border Protection report.

As a candidate, Trump promised to build an "impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful" wall on the border that would be paid for by Mexico. Before the Oval Office address, the White House's Office of Management and Budget sent a letter to Congress requesting $5.7 billion for the construction of 234 miles of steel barrier.

"President Trump likes to pretend a wall will solve all our problems, but it's been clear for some time that it is little more than a very expensive vanity project," said Thompson. "Whether steel or concrete, there is nothing special about his wall and it will not secure our borders. Democrats are willing to work with the administration to improve our border security, but let's get back to proven and effective solutions."
