Trump: ‘It Is Just Common Sense, Walls Work’

‘They keep drugs out and they dramatically increase efficiency by allowing us to patrol far larger areas with far fewer people’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “Our country is built 654 miles of barrier over the last 15 years and every career Border Patrol agent I have spoken with has told me that walls work. They do work. No matter where you go, they work. Israel built a wall, 99.9 percent successful. It won’t be any different for us. They keep criminals out. They save good people from attempting a very dangerous journey from other countries, thousands of miles because they think they have a glimmer of hope of coming through. With a wall, they don’t have that hope. They keep drugs out and they dramatically increase efficiency by allowing us to patrol far larger areas with far fewer people. It's just common sense, walls work."
