US Special Forces spend weeks testing border wall prototypes


WALL, BUILD THAT WALL, BUILD THAT WALL. CARLEY: WELL, SINCE DAY ONE PRESIDENT TRUMP PROMISE TODAY MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN WITH HIS SOUTHERN BORDER WALL AND NOW WE HAVE BRAND-NEW PROOF JUST HOW MUCH IT’S NEEDED. ROB: U.S. SPECIAL FORCES SPENT THREE WEEKS IN SAN DIEGO TESTING ALL THE PROTOTYPES YOU HAVE SEEN VIDEO OF, THE NEW HEIGHT REQUIREMENTS SHOULD STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM CROSSING THE BORDER AND THAT IS NOT ALL. CARLEY: HERE TO DISCUSS THE FINDINGS PRESIDENT OF NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL BRANDON JUDD, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH US THIS MORNING. TESTS WERE DONE TO EIGHT DIFFERENT WALL PROTOTYPES USING JACK HAMMERS AND OTHER CLIMBING DEVICES, TELL US HOW THE TESTS WENT AND WHICH WALL PROTOTYPE TURNED OUT TO BE THE BEST? WALL THAT IS GOING TO MAKE OBSOLETE THE LAST WALL THAT IS — WALL THAT IS WERE BUILT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE BARRIERS THAT WERE BUILT, WE DIDN’T TEST ANY OF THOSE, THEY TURNED OUT TO BE GOOD BUT THEY DIDN’T TURNED OUT TO BE WHAT WE NEEDED. RIGHT NOW WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP OFFICE, IF WE ARE GOING TO BUILD A BARRIER AND SPEND MONEY ON TEST IT AND TURNED OUT PERFECT. WHAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE IS SEE SOMETHING THAT’S GOING TO COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM CROSSING OVER THE BARRIERS. ROB: CERTAINLY IS THE HOPE. I DO THINK — AS WE HAVE SEEN DEMOCRATS HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED AT LEAST SOME KIND OF BORDER FENCING AND SECURITY AT THE BORDER AND KEEPING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OUT OF THE COUNTRY ONLY IN THE LAST YEAR OR TWO, CERTAINLY FLIPPED ON THAT. ME MÉXICO IS A NATION WITH A LOT OF HERE. THIS IS FROM 2017, A COUNTRY ABOUT THIRD OF THE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES, AROUND 127 MILLION PEOPLE LIVE THERE AND THEY’VE HAD ALMOST 30,000 MURDERERS LAST YEAR, 27% INCREASE FROM 2016, I THINK FROM THE U.S. GOVERNMENT NOT TO GO THERE, WARNING THAT’S EQUIVALENT TO THE WARNINGS OF GOING TO SYRIA RIGHT NOW. IT’S A VERY DANGEROUS PLACE, THERE’S A NEED FOR SECURITY.>>WELL, AND THE CRIME IS SPILLING OVER TO THIS SIDE OF THE BORDER, INTO THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU LOOK AT THE CRIMINAL CARTELS, THIS IS A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY, DRUG SMUGGLING AND HUMAN SMUGGLING INTO THE UNITED STATES GENERATES HUGE AMOUNTS OF REVENUE AND THEY WILL WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT THE DEMOCRATS AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE SAID, THE SECURED BORDER FENCE ACT, THEY SUPPORTED THAT, BUT NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY ARE SAYING, WELL, WE DON’T NEED A WALL OR FENCES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT AND DOWN MAKE ANY SENSE, IN FACT, WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS THEY ARE PLAYING POLITICS WITH THE SECURITY OF THE UNITED STATES. CARLEY: PRESIDENT TRUMP DOES SAY THAT ME THAT MÉXICO WILL PAY FOR THE WALL WHETHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY. WE WILL SEE IF THAT HAPPENS. THERE IS A REPORT THAT SAYS OUT COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS, IS THAT TRUE?>>THAT IS TRUE AND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT AGAIN IS WE ARE LOOKING AT YOU HAD ON NOVEMBER 8TH OF 2016 THE MOMENT UIL ALL WENT TO THE REPUBLICANS AND THEY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CLOSE ALL OF THE LOOPHOLES OF THE CATCH AND RELEASE PROGRAM AND EVEN THOUGH PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED THE BORDER EXECUTIVE ORDER ON JANUARY 25TH, IF THE REPUBLICANS DO NOT, IN FACT, RUN WITH THE MOMENTUM THAT PRESIDENT THESE PROBLEMS AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE THIS MAGNET THAT DRAWS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO THE UNITED STATES. ROB: BRANDON, EXPLAIN WHY THEY ARE BEING RELOCATED, WHY ARE THE PEOPLE BEING FLOWN TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY?>>WELL, THERE’S VARIOUS PROGRAMS THAT UNDER THE LAW THAT ALLOWS THESE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO CROSS THE BORDER ILLEGALLY, GET TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND THEN BE RELEASE INTOED THE UNITED STATES AND THESE ARE THE LOOPHOLES, THE LAWS THAT CONGRESS HAS TO CLOSED AND IF WE DON’T CLOSE LOOPHOLES, IT’LL CONTINUE.

    The NRA makes the country unsafe. Oxycontin makes the country unsafe. The war on drugs makes the country unsafe. The Mexican drug cartels have more money than Trump and the USA and they have planes. Airplanes that fly in the sky

    i guess i might be smarter than special forces then……on the walls that have bars at the bottom and you can see through there is an easy solution to scaling them….with just a strong staff with a hook on the end (hook to grasp and pull the rope to you)and a 100 ft of rope with a weight on one end. throw the weighted end of the rope over the wall and use the staff to pull it to your side of the wall through the bars and tie both ends of the rope to the bars, you can also use the staff as part of this process as well as rope wrapping the bars, and a person helping to keep the rope at the bottom of the fence…you now have a rope to use on both sides of the wall and with some climbing ability you should be able to traverse both sides of the wall safely….variations of this could be used to make the climb easier, such as throwing the rope over and using it to then pull a rope ladder into play…..makes me wonder about special forces climbing abilities….

    The testing can't do any better than Special Forces testing these 8 walls for 3 weeks and can't get through or over or under build the wall Build That Wall build the wall

  4. Stan Neubert

    Anyone who has ever tried to keep woodchucks out of a garden knows the barrier needs to go as deep as it is tall. Is there any defense against tunnels? If not it will not stop infiltration, ask anyone who fought the Viet Cong.

    I like how everyone talks all this shit but don’t seem to see how yea every Country produces some type of illegal drugs and yea Mexico might be the place to get them in to USA but don’t see Americans are the junkies of the world everyone tryin to sneak drugs in but why cause we buy em I’m American and I can see that so fix the problem here first and will see a difference but as long America keeps buying they gunna keep bringing bet half haters out here were high when y’all posted your racist ass comments #checkyourselfs

  6. Don Cheko

    If those special forces can't get over that wall right now and then later on i see a simple immigrant jumping over that wall its going to be a big time embarrassment…

    One more thing haven't they tried using something called a ladder???
    If the wall is tall you just need a taller ladder…

  7. el flake

    Stupid wall it won't work I can't believe us special forces couldn't jump 😂😂😂😂 I will laugh like a SOB when an ordinary mexican jumps it like nothing,what a waste of money to and by the way mexico will NOT PAY FOR IT

  8. el flake

    All you need to do is call someone from the other side to Throw a rope over the fence, done!!!! Or if the bottom is See through? It's much easier 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂🤣🤣😂😁😂🤣🤣🤣😂🤣😂🤣😁🤣😁🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😊🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂😋😂🤣😂😋🤣😂

    LOL!  OMG!  Really?  Yes, like one commenter said, it's childish propaganda!  There are so many ways around this "impenetrable, beautiful southern border wall".  Mexican (or human) ingenuity has been challenged by calling it what it's not: impenetrable (i.e., every human invention has human flaws).  I can just see the sparkle in some random, sheepherding Mexican's eye, as they think to themselves, "if I can just get around this wall, I would be a local hero (within my sheepherding community) for embarrassing highly-skilled, US  engineers and for doing what the worlds' most elite forces (the highly trained U.S. Special Forces) couldn't do." Duh, if the wall is so high, it's going to impede Border Patrols' ability to view what's going on the other side. Like seeing a couple of border crossers, sporadically drilling (along the most isolated areas) rock climbing holds for a later (unscheduled) use; painted to match the walls color (camouflaged from detection on the Mexican border side).  That's just one spontaneous idea coming from a person without some fancy engineering degree or U.S. Special Forces training! Come on!  What a waste of my tax dollars; tax dollars that some American Billionaire shell company will handsomely profit from.  It's a scheme, a gimmick that Americans will ultimately pay for and some shrewd billionaire will happily collect.

    Will the wall have defensive parapets or towers at regular intervals? I don't see any in the prototypes but logically it would have too it would seem. Otherwise, how is it a defensible position? I wish I could see the actual engineering schematics. I am very curious about this detail.

  11. Nick Bauer

    Most of the comments here are just plain stupid. Mainly silly, little liberal millennials who don't understand military science/ strategy or how a layered defensive system would work. They come here and say silly stupid things about how easy this wall would be to penetrate simply because they don't understand how a layered defensive system of the wall, defensive towers, electronic surveillance, dog and helicopter patrols etc. would work. They're mainly just stupid little kids still having a childish fit that Hillary lost and saying stupid things. These are the same skinny nerds who would quake with fear if a Mexican drug cartel member pointed a gun at them in real life. Liberal millennials are pathetic. My only criticism of the planned wall is that the liberal millennials it would protect are not creatures worth protecting.

  12. Nick Bauer

    It would be much more efficient if President Trump would simply militarize this project. We could use eminent domain laws to begin building the wall immediately across both public and private land and the money needed could come right out of the defense budget without waiting for direct Congressional approval. Furthermore, the Army Corps of Engineers are the best in the world and their added skills would speed up production significantly. The wall could be up and operational before the Democrats could be able to mount and serious legal or political opposition.

  13. HEART BREAKER

    Bolt 2 aluminum ladders together, climb to the top, tie a rope to the top rung then use the rope to climb down the other side, 50 illegals can come over before any border guards will ever see them! A wall is not the answer…motion detection, electronic surveillance is!

  14. vqfive

    Democrats just go opposite of whatever Trump wants. I wish Trump would come out in favor of Oxygen so Democrats suffocate themselves in opposition of it.

  15. richard alvarado

    You dumb ass Trump turds completely got everything all wrong. Illegal immigration has slowed ever since the 2008 economic catastrophe (caused by the GWB Jr Admin, but I digress). New investment is in Latin America, Asia, Africa and South Eastern Europe. Nobody gives a shit about Texas, Tenn, North Carolina or Wisconsin and Ohio anymore. What are you trying to keep out with that border wall crickets and ground squirrels LOL!!! Why would they wanna come over here? Gee talk about shitholes.

    Special Forces should’ve gone to Home Depot got a product called Flex Glue. This instant grabbing glue can hold upwards of 1000 lbs.

    Check it out here: http://youtu.be/LOZi8H0YMiA

    Give me half a night, scrap wood, junk, a reasonably warm day and a length of rope and I could design a “Stairway to Heaven” most people could walk up one side with a rope attached with a rigged bracket glued to the wall to slide down the other side. If you don’t think these prolific builders can’t reverse engineer a way over any wall you’ll be surprised after billions of dollars are wasted.

  17. Mr Nice

    There are drone planes now which will lift 2 people from one side to the other side. In the future there will be more powerful drones which will lift a group of people, thus the expensive wall is ineffectual.

  18. Barry McCockiner

    I would have rather made two 100 foot deep canals with a 30 foot wall in between the canals . Use the dirt dug from the canals as the foundation of the wall. Solves the tunnelling problem and the illegal immigration border jumping problem .Try digging under canals that deep .You would have to worry about being flooded out . Try scaleing a wall in the water .

  19. Alejandro de la Luz

    I really don't know how . many people . would . want . this . mounstrocity . to . happen, the wall is an unacceptable spending, you rather think a way to help Mexican people to . oust . the . corrupt government in Mexico ever since . the . independence of the United States you had . ambition to . take . power of Mexico . and . it's territory, people who . has . gone . there . as inmigrants had problem . to be worthy citizens

    Walls have always proven they are useless in the long run, this money would be better spend to fight hunger and real threats.

  20. Jay Trock

    You give me half of an A-Team aka special forces not the TV show. We would be able to get over the wall, but that isn't the point I still want the wall.

  21. Mr. John

    If Mexico did its job and stopped their cartels and illegal human trafficking, we wouldn't need a wall. But the country is rife with corruption.

  22. Alice Yogart

    You look at castle fortifications – Doubled walls with second inner one taller so you can see over first one. Also with an overhang so you can not crawl over it without hanging upside down which most people can not do especially with no hand grabs. Also walls should be thick enough to not allow people to dig under or cut through as well as patrolling on top.

    Have they tried using a ladder? I have a 55ft triple ladder that I carry in my work truck as a roofer. I can easily climb that wall and then rope down the other side.

  25. Ay! Caramba Bamba

    I don't understand…..99.9% of the beautiful homes in the subdivisions in South Texas are being built by Hispanics and you're going to tell me they're all illegal? Never do I see any blacks or whites outside in the hot sun working their butts off and doing such beautiful work as these Mexican workers, but perhaps the racists would much rather support those thugs with their big butts hanging out of their sagging pants who run around town knowing that their next meal and housing comes from the War on Poverty monies. This way you can count on many more Fergusons with it's fires which is what these racists love to see.

  26. Billy Severt

    my design works the best….

    two walls (nothing fancy, just some regular old chainlink fence) 2 miles apart… fill the middle with land mines…

    I propose using all the people on here saying that walls don't work to test it… ;D

  27. grawlix ghost

    The special forces testing those walls is just bullshit. It is very clear that those walls do not fit Trump's specifications. It should be a big beautiful see-through wall topped with solar panels that will generate electricity.

  28. George Mallory

    I think, as part of the wall funding, we should station trebuchets every mile along our side of the border. In the unlikely event that we have successful aliens crossing over the wall, we can immediately give them a free flight home. We can also give them a free bag to attach to their ankles filled with their personal effects (like Andy Dufresne in Shawshank Redemption when he drug it through the sewer pipe behind him, tied to his leg). It can say, "I crossed Trump's wall and all I got was this stupid carry-on."

  29. David Lindstrom

    All you have to do is bring portable ladders what's matter with you folks portable ladders are going to bring PVC pipe and climb over those walls just like they do when they steal those big giant Matson ships they bring ladders

  30. isai vazquez

    The probem is the employers that hire those people,cant blame them for being born in a situation like that.a wall is just an stupid idea it wouldnt help shit.

  31. Inspector Steve

    They like the one with metal bars on the bottom. The problem with that is they might not be able to get a hook on the top because the round top part. However they can let the rope drop to the other side and hook on the bars. So I don't think that is the best one. If we build this wall and in the first week we see people able to scale the wall its going to make us look like stupid.

  32. KICK_ Nolbe

    Make a wall that goes to the clouds and we still can get to the us we just not only get over but under,over planes,visa then when runs out we stay low,

  33. Marcos Mota

    Jesus Christ, people have no creativity. An eight year old boy can weigh as little as 50 pounds, and water is 8lb/per gallon. Bring 10 gallons of water up to the wall. Mate 42 feet of 1/4" static rope to 1/2" OD tubing, so that they run together for their length. Just use electrical tape. Fuse a large, 200 mil plastic bladder at one end of the tube, cover it with thin ripstop, fold the assembly and tape it with thin, short strips of 3M packing tape. Train fit men to perfect Olympic discus throws and shot put throws, bring a thrower to the wall. That man will toss the rope-tube-bladder over the wall, using a backwards overhead style. Pump the water into the bladder. Have the boy climb the 1/4" rope assembly while attached to a longer 3/8" rope with knot hand holds. Have him bring a guy wire spike/screw** and a 16-oz hammer. On the other side, he nails the guy wire screw into the base of the wall, with the dirt on one side and the wall on the other. Oops, he will need a car jack crank to drive the screw at an offset angle. Once screwed, the 3/8" rope gets affixed and the coyotes start to send people over. The bladder stays as a backup in case the main rope fails. Total cost: $300 parts, $300 labor for seamstress or tailor to sew the ripstop bag for the bladder, $100 for welder drill and weld a 3/8 Inch Drive Universal Joint onto the guy wire screw. Twenty minutes of typing, spell-checking and correcting.

    ** Guy wire anchors only have one spiral. This use case requires at least six inches of spiral, thus it is more of a screw. The unthreaded shaft needs to be at least 12 inches for there to be enough overhead soil. Total length is 18".

    * Oversight. The ripstop bag needs webbing reinforcement longitudinally and circumferentially. With one ring around the opening for the bladder, where three equidistant attachment points should be added for the 3/8" rope. I raised the cost of the seamstress.

    Last Christmas I gave you my wall but the very next day you gave it away
    this year to save me from tears I’ll give it to someone special

  35. Desert Dweller

    The traitorous politicians and government bureaucrats continue their treasonous acts against out Nation and it's lawful citizens as they continue to act intentionally against the righteous will of the people and our interests. They have a definitively, clear cut mandate from Americans to end the unlawful invasion by of our Nation by hordes of criminal aliens. Their actions are to facilitate, fund and in fact abet this invasion of our Nation by every means possible. They are all despicably acting for their own self-serving, selfish interests to facilitate our demise and enrich their gluttonous and insatiable quest for power and wealth.

  36. John Smith

    What would stop them is volunteers protecting the border with hunting rifles…

    Open season, cacería a esas basuras ilegales!

  37. LeadUR Subconscious

    THEY JUST CLIMBED OVER THEIR NEW DESIGN STEEL WALL IN LESS THAN 5 SECONDS LMAO HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

  38. J L

    Now build a 10' chain link fence 300 yards behind the new wall.. Put up towers to shoot from. Sell hunting licenses to Patriots and allow them to shoot anyone between the two fences. Problem solved and you are generating revenue too.. Sounds like a win win in my book.

    There will also need to be a trebuchet available to toss the bodies back over too.. just saying..
