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.
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
