By several measures, the border is far more secure than it has ever been, and with our help, will soon be even more secure. It is now time for balanced, fair, and tough immigration reformNowhere does he mention the impact of the "wall" directly. In fact, your previous quote from Schumer isn't in the article at all. You seem to do this a lot when it comes to citing quotes; posting words said then giving alterior articles when called out on it.
You don't bother to mention the 60% increase in border agents during that period, the additonal mobile surveillance systems, or quite possibly most important - the massive economic downturn that killed work opportunities here. And, once again, the "wall" was never actually built and instead pieced together by 36 miles of double layered fencing, some pedestrian fences, and vehicle barriers (as noted earlier). As Obama said in 2011, when wall supporters voiced anger over the $#!+ty "fencing" they received after the amendment passed (2007):They'll want want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied. And I understand that. That’s politics.Dude was spot on.
