Former Drug Czar Makes Big Time Statement, “WALLS WORK”
Anyone that has ever had someone try and break into their house and fail will tell you that walls work.
It’s a simple fact of life is that when you provide an obstacle for someone that they will have a harder time doing what they are going to do if they are able to do it at all.
Just look at all of the mansions owned by the wealthy or powerful in this world. They don’t have houses that you could just walk in to out of nowhere. You’d either have to get pass a security checkpoint or a fence that is at least eight feet tall.
Gee kids, that sounds like a border crossing and a wall doesn’t it? Yes, it certainly does. Anyway, all of the rich politicians that are against the idea of a wall on the Mexican border have homes that have walls surrounding them of some kind.
For the everyday American, they are great protecting their property. Guy that lives down the street from my own father had a fence installed over the summer that’s about seven feet tall. Reason being is that a couple of years ago he got robbed and someone tried stealing some pretty expensive stuff from his front yard.
Anyway, he gets this fence installed and about two months later some buffoon tried to break in. He got about halfway over the fence until he got hit by the little electric current running at the top of the fence. He fell back on his side and called an ambulance for help. So yeah, walls work…
Bush administration drug czar, John Walters, said in a recent interview that it was “ludicrous” to believe that a wall won’t help with drugs in the United States.
“Obviously, a fixed barrier and a control of the border will discourage people from trying to penetrate with drugs,” Walters said on “Fox and Friends.”
“Two hundred people are dying a day of overdoses let alone uncounted thousands being addicted, and people are saying this isn’t a real problem.
“That’s kind of horrifying that our national leaders are just dismissing the massive amounts of death here, and if we don’t change the strategic landscape on the ground, less guard duty, more control and sorting at channeled and controlled ports of entry, we will continue to have unbelievable and historic carnage of death from drugs alone.”
Host Brian Kilmeade clarified Walters’ point by saying that a wall would “funnel people” toward the designated points of entry.
Should that plan come into play, those wishing to cross the border would be under the watchful eye of law enforcement who can then assess whether those individuals should be allowed in and whether they are carrying anything damaging to citizens, such as drugs.
According to Walters, a big part of the problem is that border patrol is spread too thin to deal with the sheer area that they are being forced to patrol.
