New U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ron Vitiello said a wall at the Mexican border will be effective if done “right.”
“Placement is important, where it is in relation to the actual boundary and then what kind of equipment and resources support it because in it of itself, it won’t do that job,” said Vitiello in an interview with ABC News.
Vitiello said agents will be the critical component of a successful wall.
“Somebody has to arrest the people who are going to continue to attempt to enter even if there is a border wall,” he said.
Vitiello added that the wall will need adequate surveillance technology and sensing equipment to alert agents when someone attempts to breach the wall.
