"As a border patrol agent, I can tell you: Walls do work," a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) attests, citing the success of barriers built on the San Diego border, in a CBP video.
In a video explaining why borders walls are an essential component of border security, the agent recounts how the institution of border walls in San Diego has resulted in a 87 percent reduction in annual apprehensions of illegal aliens – from 560,000 to 68,000.
"The agent also explains how border security measures, such as border walls, have benefitted the environment and also transformed a 'lawless wasteland' into thriving communities," Bannister continues.
"In areas where we constructed barriers, deployed more agents, and gained back control of the border, natural habitats damaged by illegal migration have recovered. Piles of discarded debris disappeared. Neighborhoods and businesses replaced what was once lawless wasteland," the agent says on the U.S. Customs and Border Control video.
