    Obama Border Patrol Chief Goes Public–to Support Trump: ‘The Wall Works’

    Obama Border Patrol Chief Goes Public–to Support Trump: ‘The Wall Works’

    Mark Morgan, the Obama administration chief of the U.S. Border Patrol who was fired one day after President Donald Trump took office, went public on Tuesday with a message that may surprise the White House: he supports Mr. Trump and his efforts to get funding for a border wall.

    “I’m here today breaking my silence to tell the American people that the president is correct in what he’s doing,” Morgan said in an interview with the Law & Crime Network. “The wall works.”

    When he was still running the Border Patrol, Morgan referred to the needs at the border as a “fence.” He told a Senate committee in November 2016, “Do we need more fencing? Yes. Does it work? Yes. Do we need it everywhere? No. Is it the sole answer? No.” Morgan again said on Tuesday that a physical barrier is not the whole answer and is not needed along the entire border, but it is significant.

    “It would be like having a high-tech security system, but not having doors or windows in your house,” Morgan said.

    Asked if he was encouraged by the White House to make his views known, Morgan said no.

    “I’m doing this on my own for one reason,” he said. “I’m a patriot.”

    So basically what he's saying is that a comprehensive solution is needed that includes barriers in certain places. I don't think that's different than most people have been saying or that of previous administrations.

    What the President has said from the beginning is that a wall is needed the entire length and has boasted that he's going to get Mexico to pay for it. I also don't believe he has any idea of the costs involved in building and maintaining his proposal including: Cost to build, Infrastructure costs needed to transport materials to site, continued maintenance, Engineering, Eminent Domain process, Environmental (including the disruption of migratory patterns). We're talking 30-40 Billion to build and another 5+ probably to maintain yearly.

    Nation with Crumbling Bridges and Roads Excited to Build Giant Wall

    As America’s bridges, roads, and other infrastructure dangerously deteriorate from decades of neglect, there is a mounting sense of urgency that it is time to build a giant wall.

    Across the U.S., whose rail system is a rickety antique plagued by deadly accidents, Americans are increasingly recognizing that building a wall with Mexico, and possibly another one with Canada, should be the country's top priority.

    Harland Dorrinson, the executive director of a Washington-based think tank called the Center for Responsible Immigration, believes that most Americans favor the building of border walls over extravagant pet projects like structurally sound freeway overpasses.

    "The estimated cost of a border wall with Mexico is five billion dollars," he said. "We could easily blow the same amount of money on infrastructure repairs and have nothing to show for it but functioning highways."

    Congress has dragged its feet on infrastructure spending in recent years, but Dorrinson senses growing support in Washington for building a giant border wall. "Even if for some reason we don't get the Mexicans to pay for it, five billion is a steal," he said.

    While some think that America’s declining infrastructure is a national-security threat, Dorrinson strongly disagrees. "If immigrants somehow get over the wall, the condition of our bridges and roads will keep them from getting very far," he said.
    “There he goes. One of God's own prototypes.
