REPORT: Smugglers Are Sawing Through New Sections of Trump’s Border Wall

I love anti-state creativity.

 Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Trump’s border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools, opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage, reports The Washington Post.

The breaches have been made using a popular cordless household tool known as a reciprocating saw that retails at hardware stores for as little as $100. When fitted with specialized blades, the saws can slice through one of the barrier’s steel-and-concrete bollards in a matter of minutes, according to the agents.

The smuggling crews have been using other techniques, such as building makeshift ladders to scale and overtop the barriers, especially in the popular smuggling areas in and around San Diego, according to nearly a dozen U.S. agents and current and former administration officials.



  1. Trump will send the repair bills to Mexico City.

  2. They are not anti state. They are pro freebies.

  3. They think of us as cattle. There are now “smart fences” that are similar to the pet fences that livestock handlers have started to use. The boundaries are set by GPS coordinates. No physical barriers that can be broken or scaled are needed. Just have all of us domesticated animals wear a “smart collar”. Or better yet put an implant in my skull. They can use government speak and call it “Smart Brain”. Only crazy people wouldn’t want their “Smart Brain”.
