A Thirty-Foot Ladder Has Appeared On Border Wall In California

Published

on

New reports are indicated that individuals involved in the practice of human smuggling have created a makeshift ladder out of PVC pipes to scale the 30-foot border fence located in Calexico, California.

The ladder itself appears to have been built by one or more individuals and then placed on the fence. There are 10 plastic plumbing pipes spaced out every three feet that makes it possible for a person to climb over from one side to the other. The construction on this portion of the border fence is part of President Trump’s border security agenda. The construction on it started last fall.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

An old photo of the shorter wall that was replaced with this taller one shows it is directly on the international border and separates a neighborhood in Calexico from a neighborhood in Mexicali in Baja California, Mexico.

Local media cited “coyotes,” or Mexicans who help people illegally enter the United States, as the likely builders of the ladder.

Mexicali’s director of firefighters, Ruben Osuna, said the department has received 10 calls to rescue people trapped on top of the wall. Police officers in the Mexican town have detained more than 65 people who have attempted to cross the fence or damage it.

Customs and Border Protection has not, at the time of this writing, responded to the reports nor for comment requests.

Back in January, the Border Patrol, along with the San Diego Fire Department rescued three individuals who were stuck at the top of the fence in southwestern California.

Before that, in December of 2019, photographs were captured by a journalist of someone attempting to use a rope ladder to scale the fence.

Activists Get Ready To Storm DC In Protests Set For Independence Day Weekend

Published

on

Liberals are determined to try and ruin Independence Day celebrations this year in any way they can, such as showing up en masse in Washington, D.C., to hold protests and demonstrations to supposedly end racism or something of that nature. This, of course, is more of the same old thing we’ve been seeing for weeks now across the country in light of the death of George Floyd. Lots of rioting, looting, and burning things, all in the name of ending police brutality. Feel free to roll your eyes now. Rather than celebrate the fact we live in a wonderfully free country with the best innovation on the planet, these folks would rather stand outside and shout pathetic slogans in an attempt to recapture the faded and completely unnecessary flames of the 1960s Civil Rights movement. I say unnecessary because the Civil Rights movement succeeded. There’s no more systemic racism, no matter how hard folks try to craft a narrative and say there is. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Activists in the most high profile of these events plan to protest the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park. The memorial, which leaders of the local collective the Freedom Neighborhood claimed they would topple last week, has become a subject of national interest, with many people making a case both for and against the statue. Glenn Foster, the leader of the Freedom Neighborhood, has promoted multiple protests against the memorial set for the days surrounding the July 4 weekend. In some of his material, he celebrated the fact that on Tuesday the Boston Arts Commission voted to remove an identical copy of the statue, which depicts President Abraham Lincoln freeing the slave Archer Alexander, from public display. The movement has received support from D.C. public officials. Shadow Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton on…

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

on

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…
