Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief went against his former employer by maintaining border walls not only work, but work rather well.
The former Border Patrol Chief under former President Barack Obama revealed that he supports President Donald Trump’s desire to build a wall along the southern border, in a Monday night interview with Tucker Carlson. Mark Morgan was asked to step down from his position in January 2017.
When asked if walls work, Morgan stated, “Yes. They absolutely work. If you look in the past, that bipartisan legislation Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012, bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier, whatever you want to call it, it’s a wall. It works.”
“The president is right, the president of [National] Border Control Council is right. The other day when they had the national press conference and they got up and they said, ‘The wall works,’ they are right, and it’s not based on a personal, political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”
Morgan went on to say he believes the Democrat opposition to the wall is a political ploy. Duh, ya think? Tonight’s address by the president is a good move, because while 62% of Americans favor border security, he needs to make the case to those who – inexplicably – do not support the measures.
