Spencer's suggestion to Trump:
Build "Obama's Wall"

Left, 2006 - ABP begins aerial surveillance of Yuma fence // Right, as fence went in, apprehensions dropped like a rock. ---Glenn Spencer - American Border Patrol

Glenn Spencer -- American Border Patrol    
We need the will more than a wall
    The Secure Fence Act of 2006 called for the construction of 700 miles of double-layered fence along the border with Mexico. While some argue that the fence wasn't finished due to lack of funding, I believe it was an amendment authored by Sen. Kay Bailey of Texas that allowed DHS to deviate from the law.
    Enough of the 2006 border fence was constructed, however, to offer glimpse into what would have happened if the entire double-layered fence had been built. New fencing at Yuma was started in 2006 and completed in 2008, much of it double-layered. In that period apprehensions at Yuma dropped by more than 95%. I would suggest that the same thing would happen if we finished the entire 700 miles of double-layered fence, especially if it was backed up with the SEIDARM system.
    Senator Barack Obama voted in favor of the Secure Fence Act of 2006. If Mr. Trump decided to finish the job, he could call it "Obama's Wall. "
    As I said in an earlier blog, the problem with border security isn't the type of barrier, i.e., wall vs. fence, it is the will on the part of the government bureaucracy to do the job that is lacking.

In order to fully understand the demise of America's blue collar working class, we have to revisit World War II history. The maturing of the United States manufacturing industry, along with unquestioning American patriotism, did without a doubt save the entire world from the maniacal mad men of German, Italy and Japan. -- After the war the millions of G. I.s who had given up their jobs and lifestyles to fight for freedom, came back and needed work! So with Yankee ingenuity, that mighty manufacturing industry stopped building tanks, airplanes and jeeps, and instead built refrigerators, stoves, cars, trucks, etc........

Mexico Helping Unvetted African Migrants to U.S. Border   
Hundreds of African asylum seekers have flooded Mexican border cities with the U.S. in an effort to get to California and Texas to obtain U.S. asylum — many of the unvetted migrants are from the terror hotbed of Somalia. Rather than having to hide along the way, the African migrants have been getting a special permit from Mexico that gives them a free pass to the U.S. border......

Ranchers fear drug cartels more than immigrants at US-Mexico border   
On a sweltering summer evening in southern Arizona, dozens of carpet-soled moccasins lie along the portico of a ranch 20 miles from Mexico, serving as a reminder of one of the biggest problems on the border: not illegal immigration, but drug trafficking. -- Interrupted only by the cicadas, Jim Chilton, a fifth-generation rancher, and his wife Sue explain that Mexican drug mules, who routinely traverse their 50,000 acres of land, cover the soles of the moccasins --- which are then worn over shoes --- with carpet to avoid leaving tracks that US border agents could follow. .....

If that happened, Nieto will tell Trump, chaos might send millions of Mexicans north - and no fence would stop them. -- American Border Patrol has been reporting on this issue for years, but a blackout of our work by the globalist media has kept the public ignorant. -- Time will tell if President Nieto can convince Trump to back off his border plans..

He said about six or so miles south of the Wellton area, in what is called Wellton Station, is protected by a natural border. -- The rest, ranging from the Imperial Sand Dunes in California at the west to the Yuma-Pima County line to the east, is mostly lined with up to a 20-foot high fence. -- To the west, a “floating” fence installed in 2008 sits atop the dunes.
