Footage has been revealed that shows Donald Trump’s “virtually impenetrable” US border wall in a state of collapse as it has been blown over into Mexico due to high winds.
CNN has reported that the sections that have been damaged are a part of an ongoing construction project in a bid to make the wall even better.
The areas that have given way have been set in a new concrete foundation in Calexico, California, according to Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection sector.
Pitones informed the publication: “We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries,” as it is believed that high winds have reached around 37 miles per hour.
Back in September, Donald Trump spoke to the press and said: “I wanted them to show you the interior of parts of the wall and what’s inside of each individual slat. And you’ll see it’s a combination of steel, concrete, and – as one of the folks just said – it really is virtually impenetrable.
“Any walls that were put up would get knocked down very quickly, very easily. This wall is not something that can be really knocked down.”
In December, footage emerged that showed a group of men scaling the US border wall with a rope ladder.
During his run for office, Trump’s main focus was the wall between the United States and Mexico. During rallies, crowds would chant ‘build the wall’.
It was later confirmed by the US Customs and Border Protection that the man who made it was a 16-year-old Mexican. Later on, it was revealed that he had been apprehended by border officials.
A spokesman for Customs and Border Protection said: “Less than 24 hours ago a video showed up on Facebook and Twitter showing an individual climbing the border wall.
“The individual was assisted by a rope ladder and two men on the Mexican side. In the video, the individual makes it over the border wall and begins to run north into the United States.
“The border wall system consists not only of physical barriers but lights, patrol roads and detection technology. While the physical barrier serves to slow down illicit traffic, the detection technology alerts our agents as to where and when threats emerge. The patrol roads allow for a rapid response.
“In this particular incident, the border wall system worked exactly as designed. The illicit traffic was slowed down, the detection technology alerted our agents, agents responded, and the subject was apprehended.
“That subject turned out to be a 16-year-old Mexican male. All too often criminal organisations exploit juveniles in this regard. In partnership with the government of Mexico, coordination is currently underway to alert the other two subjects involved in this incident.
“Crossing illegally into the United States is a federal crime. Those who violate the law will be held accountable and there are consequences to these actions.”
