Fences along the Mexico border are expensive to maintain and difficult to police.

Drug traffickers often smashed through the barrier with trucks. Others sneak in when it’s foggy, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. 

About 670 miles of the U.S. border with Mexico has a fence. In California, maintaining a fence cost $9 million a year and requires surveillance cameras, underground sensors, welders and stadium lights.

The debate over the effectiveness of fences has gained traction after Donald Trump said he wanted to build a wall along the entire border.

People have been having no trouble jumping the White House fence over the past few years, and now the Secret Service is about to do something about it.

The agency plans to make the security fence about 5 feet taller and add a concrete foundation, News4 I-Team reports.

“The current fence simply is not adequate for a modern era. We’ve said that before. It is becoming more and more acutely clear that that is in fact the case,” Secret Service official Tom Dougherty said in the briefing to federal officials.

“(The fence) is entirely scale-able, depending upon the circumstances. And we have now a society that tends to want to jump over the fence and onto the 18 acres,” Daugherty said in the briefing. 

The current wall is 6 feet tall.

It seemed almost unfathomable at the time: A fence-jumper managed to make it inside the White House in 2014.

An investigation of the incident by Homeland Security’s inspector general found that the Secret Service was hindered by technical problems with radios and notification systems, CBS News reports. 

Omar Gonzalez eluded eight Secret Service members after a communications breakdown when he scaled the iron fence on the north side of the White House.

Within four minutes, Gonzalez sprinted across the White House grounds to a door that was open and unlocked.

When he was apprehended, he was found with a knife.

“No other fence jumper has ever made it so far through the Secret Service’s defenses,” the report said.

President Obama’s family was celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday afternoon when a man draped in an American flag jumped over the White House fence, the Washington Post reports. 

Joseph Caputo was taken into custody soon after scaling over the north fence line at 2:45 p.m.

It wasn’t immediately clear why Caputo jumped the fence.

The Secret Service is concerned because Caputo made it over the fence despite the installation of “pencil point” spikes added to the White House perimeter.

A witness said she saw the man drape himself with a flag and then said, “Alright, let’s do this.”

The treacherous trek through the 100-degree desert may not be the most difficult challenge for many immigrants who are sneaking over the border from Mexico.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that an increasing number of people are getting injured trying to jump the border fence, which has been made higher in some areas.

As a result, hospitals are seeing numerous case of injured immigrants. Most of the injuries are to the feet, ankles and spine.

“It’s the same crossing through the wall or through the desert,” said Gilda Felix, director of the Juan Bosco immigrant shelter from Nogales. “Both are difficult and dangerous.”

The exact number of people getting injured from jumping the fence is unclear, but nearly 100 case were reported so far this year by two Mexican consulates.
