Cheap Saws Cut through US Mexico Border Wall

As per media reports, while smugglers are reportedly using under USD 100 saws to cut through sections of the US Mexico border wall that have already been built in parts of the San Diego and El Centro sectors in California, other groups have begun using makeshift ladders made of reinforcement bars to scale the wall and get around its anti climb panels. Cartels and smuggling organizations have used a tool called a reciprocating saw to cut through the wall’s steel bollards to make a hole big enough for a person to pass through.

US President Mr Donald Trump told the Post “I haven’t heard that. We have a very powerful wall. But no matter how powerful, you can cut through anything, in all fairness. But we have a lot of people watching. You know cutting, cutting is one thing, but it’s easily fixed. One of the reasons we did it the way we did it, it’s very easily fixed. You put the chunk back in.”

A wall spanning the entire US Mexico border was one of Trump’s signature campaign promises in 2016, and he’s hinging part of his re election campaign on the ability to get it built, even if US taxpayers are paying for it instead of the Mexican government, which he promised on the campaign trail. The Trump administration has budgeted nearly USD 10 billion for the wall and has built 76 miles of it so far in areas that already had some kind of fencing. Additional 158 miles are being built right now and 276 other miles are in a preconstruction" phase.
