    Concertina wire stolen from border fence and used for home security in Tijuana

    Concertina wire stolen from border fence and used for home security in Tijuana, authorities say


    Sections of the concertina wire were missing Monday from a U.S.-Mexico border fence in the Colonia Libertad neighborhood of Tijuana. Razor wire was installed in November as a measure to "harden" U.S. borders by the Department of Homeland Security under the Trump administration.

    The concertina wire installed under the Trump administration to reinforce the U.S.-Mexico border is now being stolen and used to protect Tijuana residences as the city grapples with a surge in crime, officials confirmed Monday.

    Thieves are stealing and selling the same concertina wire installed in November along the border by the Department of Homeland Security, and 15 to 20 arrests have already been made, city officials said.


    Contractors were seen Monday at a border fence on the U.S. side of the Colonia Libertad neighborhood of Tijuana, replacing some of the stolen wire.


    Some homes in the same area had identical wire installed in front of their homes, as an added layer of protection to their property lines and fences, but residents declined to comment about how they obtained the material.


    “I don’t actually live here in this house, so I have no idea how that wire got here,” said one woman who declined to give her name in Colonia Libertad at a house where the razor wire was visible in front.


    Tijuana was the most violent city in the world in 2018, according a new report by the Citizens' Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice. Homicides rose to historic levels in recent years while local Tijuana gangs battled over a lucrative domestic drug market, averaging about seven killings per day, the report said.


    The concertina wire — or razor wire — was installed to address fears that large crowds of Central American migrants would force their way into the country, according to a Nov. 19 statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.


    Contractors directed by the National Guard trimmed the border fence along the southwestern end of the United States with 18-foot thickets of the military-grade concertina wire.


    Thieves are now stealing that same material at night and using it in their homes or selling the razor wire to Tijuana residents who are using it as an extra layer of home security around their residences, the city’s secretary of public safety confirmed Monday.


    “We have detected that the barbed wire that was installed in the border area is no longer there. We know about the stealing of the concertina (wire) from United States authorities who have asked us for help through the liaison staff,” said Marco Antonio Sotomayor Amezcua, the secretary of public safety in Tijuana.


    Sotomayor said the material is distinctive and differs from anything sold in stores in Tijuana. Razor wire is stronger, sharper and more likely to cause injury than regular barbed wire, which can be found in any home improvement store, he said.


    Director Reynaldo González Mora, who leads Tijuana’s border liaison unit, said police arrested about 15 to 20 people in the last week for allegedly stealing the material from the border fence.

    “The people arrested were mainly Mexican (citizens), and most were people who have been deported from the United States, and people who have problems with drug addiction and live mostly on the street,”
    González said.


    Trump touted the additional layer of border security in a tweet saying, in part, “no climbers anymore under our Administration!”


    A CBP official said the concertina wire is made of galvanized steel.


    Wire isn’t the only construction material used in the neighborhood. Abandoned tires are a common sight, typically refashioned and used for everything from retaining walls to the foundations of people’s homes.

    They steal, they lie, they take, they cheat...get them off our soil and start busing them back home!

    Mexico is NOT our ally and they are not our friend.

    Shut that whole border down...we are sick of their invasion and sick of their THEFT!

    CATCH AND DEPORT ON THE SPOT.

    They come here and TAKE the donated clothes from the Churches and then turn around and sell them at swap meets. They have no respect for this country, our good will, and no respect for our people.

    The churches are doing a disservice to this country by coddling and harboring these criminals and they need to lose their tax-exempt status and foot the bill for the billions in THEFT against the American people they cause.

    We do not want these people here and we do not need these people here.

    CATCH AND DEPORT ON THE SPOT INCLUDING THEIR UAC'S...THEY GROW UP TO BE CRIMINALS TOO!
