    This photo shows why a border wall won’t stop immigration surge

    Migrants are shown lined up outside the wall in El Paso, Texas, on March 7. This group of 127 Guatemalan migrants had waded through the river to turn themselves in to U.S. agents, the first step in initiating the asylum process. (U.S. Customs and Border Protection)

    This photo shows why a border wall won’t stop immigration surge

    The new walls create a strip of U.S. territory where people can legally seek asylum.


    By Nick Miroff and Karly Domb Sadof / The Washington Post

    Unauthorized border crossings have soared in recent months to their highest level in a decade, largely because of families seeking asylum in the United States. President Donald Trump has declared a “national emergency,” calling for billions of dollars in additional border wall funding.


    This photo, released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, shows why U.S. border barriers won’t stop the families from reaching U.S. soil and exercising their legal right to seek asylum.


    The Rio Grande spans about two-thirds of the U.S.-Mexico border, and nearly all of the new border wall the president wants to build is along the river. Border walls are linear and need a solid base, but the river banks are unstable and follow a circuitous course. So the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is building new barriers along the river levee. The walls create a strip of U.S. territory between the river and the fencing.



    In the photo, migrants are shown lined up outside the wall in El Paso on March 7. This group of 127 Guatemalan migrants had waded through the river to turn themselves in to U.S. agents, the first step in initiating the asylum process. They crossed the border illegally, but they have the legal right to seek asylum because they reached U.S. soil. Border Patrol agents must take them into custody and begin processing their claims.


    The barrier in the photo is about 10 years old. Though it is not the steel bollard design that Customs and Border Protection is adding along the river elsewhere, this is considered a relatively modern span of border fencing.


    Like the new sections the government is building, there is a gate here to give U.S. agents and others access to both sides of the wall – all on U.S. land.


    U.S. Border Patrol agents open a gate in the fence as they check migrants’ documents and bring them through. Vans and buses are arriving to take the migrants to a nearby border patrol station for additional processing. They will be transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which in most cases releases families from custody after a few days.


    They then wait inside the United States to see an immigration judge – which could take several months or longer.
    Homeland Security officials want lawmakers to grant them new authorities to hold families in custody until their asylum claims are adjudicated. They have launched a limited, experimental program to require others to wait for their court hearings on the Mexican side of the border. But in private, they acknowledge that the migration surge is likely to continue with or without a wall, and they fear it possibly could accelerate without changes to the U.S. asylum system.

    He's too busy tweeting about McCain and George Conway.

    Trump will do anything to distract while the country is invaded. All a part of his plan.

    His campaign and what has followed will go down in history as the biggest deception ever pulled on the American people.
