Notice that the border wall was built immediately next to trees growing on the Mexican side. Anybody who can climb a tree has an easy way to get over the wall. If the border crosser carries a rope, they will have an easy descent onto the American side.

(USA Today) A portion of President Donald Trump’s border wall blew over from gusty winds Wednesday, falling on the Mexican side of the border.

The newly installed panels were a part of an ongoing project to improve existing parts of the wall in Calexico, California.

Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection in El Centro, California, told CNN that the new concrete foundation had not yet cured when the wall panels fell down amid windy conditions.

“We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries,” Pitones said.

A video posted on social media shows the section landing on some trees on the Mexican side of the border while construction workers continue to work in the windy conditions. Another video shows a slab of panel on the ground.

The National Weather Service reported 37 mph winds in the area Wednesday.



"I own buildings. I'm a builder; I know how to build. Nobody can build like I can build. Nobody. And the builders in New York will tell you that. I build the best product." -- Donald Trump
