And here are some of the steel slats that the President’s been talking about, uh, right here. Uh, as you can see, yes, you can see through these slats to the, uh, other side of the U.S.-Mexico border. Uh, but as we’re walking along here we’re not seeing any kind of, uh, imminent danger, there are no migrants trying to, uh, rush toward this fence, uh, here in the McAllen, Texas area.

Uh, but no sign of the national emergency that the President has been talking about. Uh, as a matter of fact it’s pretty tranquil down here.

Yup, sounds like the wall is working!

Jim has no idea how much he just did to support the case for a wall!
