Wasserman Schultz says Trump’s border wall “ineffective” as smugglers cut through


A recent Washington Post story detailing how criminal drug smugglers are sawing through portions of the newly-erected Trump border wall has some House Democrats saying “I told ya so,” as the news somewhat makes their case that the border wall would be ineffective.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (R), who is one of those critics that oppose Trump’s border security wall, tweeted that the president’s “monument to ego and xenophobia” was “clearly ineffective” and a waste of “taxpayer dollars.”

“Trump’s monument to ego and xenophobia is: Clearly ineffective,” stated Wasserman Schultz “Not being paid for by Mexico. Stealing money from our military families. Wasting taxpayer dollars. Will Republicans ever stand up and oppose this boondoggle?”

According to the report, smugglers are using a basic reciprocating saw to cut holes in the fence. This common tool can be purchased at any Home Depot or True Value hardware store.

“After cutting through the base of a single bollard, smugglers can push the steel out of the way, creating an adult-size gap. Because the bollards are so tall — and are attached only to a panel at the top — their length makes them easier to push aside once they have been cut and are left dangling, according to engineers consulted by The Washington Post.”

Here is how they are doing it:
