President Trump used his official Twitter account to debunk claims that wall construction on the southern border was collapsing on Sunday.
Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall “fell over”, trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed “forever”.

Mainstream media entities cherry-picked reports of a collapse occurring at new border walling near San Diego at the US-Mexico borders. Many of the reports failed to mention that the wall structures that collapsed weren’t even finished, having just been undergone the concrete pour phase of construction.
Huffington Post described the incident as “Trump’s Border Wall Collapses,” failing the mention that the incident was far more of a construction-phase mishap than a collapse of a completed structure.
Unusually strong winds occurred in the area of the new walling, leading to its collapse. A wall structure with dried and hardened concrete foundations would not fall down when faced with 40 mile-an-hour winds, obviously. But it’s not a surprising oddity that a new and foundationally insecure structure might fall over during such freak weather conditions.
Wall construction has picked up in recent months, with President Trump diverting funds from Pentagon projects to pay for new construction. He’s set to secure a latest round of funding through diverting $3.8 billion dollars from various stalled initiatives, applying to resources directly to American national security on the border. Such an investment would secure the greatest portion of new border wall yet.
The promise of a new and ‘big, beautiful’ wall of the southern border was Donald Trump’s signature campaign proposal during the 2016 Presidential election. He’s on track to complete more than 450 miles of new wall construction by the end of the year, providing a point of defense against drug trafficking, human smuggling, and illegal immigration.
Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas
200 illegal aliens escaped at once.
As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.
Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.
Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.
“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”
Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.
Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
