Trump says wall will stop ‘99.5 percent’ of illegal traffic

President Trump predicted Tuesday that his border wall will stop “99.5 percent” of illegal-immigrant traffic as he toured eight wall prototypes being tested in San Diego, saying it will save thousands of Americans’ lives and the money saved will far outweigh costs of construction.

Standing in California the president also took the chance to blast the state for its sanctuary city policies — and suggested he’s considering vetoing the upcoming spending bill if it won’t punish sanctuaries by stripping away federal grant money.

“We’re going to look at it. We’re looking at it very, very strongly,” the president said. “Sanctuary cities are protecting a horrible group of people, in many cases — criminals.”

Mr. Trump strolled through the prototype walls with Rodney S. Scott, chief patrol agent of the San Diego sector of the Border Patrol, who pointed out the features of each build, and talked about the attempts made to breach or climb them.

    Trump, the bill you signed only provides 33 miles of fencing!

    No it won’t stop 99.9% of illegal crossings. Mankind loves a challenge and is resourceful. It should stop a large percentage though. I think POTUS is hyped about the wall. He is forgetting to take into account the other means of breaching the borders. But it is a part of the effort.

    Trump has once again proven he is clueless about how illegals get here. Half come in across our border and the other have come in on visas and over stay. The wall won’t even stop half the illegals and will stop zero of the drugs. Even the border patrols point out problems with Trumps wall design.

      We have been hearing for years form Liberals that new draconian gun laws will stop the violence, and they don’t even slow it, yet folks like you support them. We have been told that they would support closing the borders in exchange for amnesty for those already here, and they have lied continually about that, yet you support them. We have been promised so many different programs to control the drug problem and all we get is decriminalizing and legalizing Marijuana and “entertainment” glorifying drug use, yet you support them. Now we have a chance, even a small chance, to stem the tide of illegals coming into the country and you don’t even want to try. Why? Is it because PRESIDENT Trump is in favor of it and you are a “Never Trump’er”? Is it because the Democrats will now have to fulfill a promise for a secure southern border they have made 3 time since 2001? Or is it because you. like so many liberals, are against anything that would fulfill a campaign promise made by the President for purely political reasons? I think I’ll go home and order my wife to support this, as your hero Hillary says we all do.

      Whatever it does stop will be thousnands of times more than the Commieonazicrat Party, aka, Democrap Party, has ever done.

    I have no problem with the wall being built but the illegal invasion can be stopped without a wall. Start shooting the illegal’s when they cross our border. I guarantee it will stop them almost immediately.
