US-Mexico border wall had been the prime focus of the Trump administration. The wall worth $12 billion secured the spotlight in the Trump rule and now is breached using a $5 ladder.
Texas Monthly brought up the issue in a report highlighting the crossing of the border wall by unauthorized migrants using a ladder.
The report cited Scott Nicol, an activist and Texas resident who said,
“These ladders are probably $5 worth of hardware, and they’re defeating a wall that cost $12 million a mile in that location.”
“Unlike the wall, these ladders are functional,” Nicol continued.
Seemingly, the sturdy wall failed to curb the two-way traffic.
US Patrol Officials in the area also noted the frequent locating of the ladders along the boundary, which are subsequently discarded and departed to the landfills.
The lumber-derived ladders have become the common findings between Granjeno and Hidalgo, thus questioning the administrative spendings of billion dollars in standing this structure.
