Residents, Border Patrol Weigh in on Trump’s Proposal to Build a Wall

Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall at the border between the U.S. and Mexico has drawn strong criticism and support.

To longtime border resident Pamela Taylor, a wall would be ineffective, KENS 5 reports. She lives next to a wall that had been built about 10 years ago.

“I don’t care what it’s called. It’s useless,” Taylor said, adding that “the fence is not working at all and those millions of illegal aliens would not be in America today if that fence were working.”

Others support the wall, including Chris Cabrera, the local 3307 vice president of the National Border Patrol Council.

“With the exception of Mr. Trump, nobody in the presidential campaign has ever spoken about national security. Many have spoken about immigration reform but none have spoken to secure the actual border,” Cabrera said.

Cabrera said the existing wall is effective because it creates bottleneck traffic.

But he said the wall is only one part of cracking down on illegal immigration.

“The simple solution right off the bat is enforce the laws that are on the books. We’re releasing about 80 percent of the people coming across,” he said. “So with that, people are going to continue to cross.”
