MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff was near the U.S.-Mexico border for a segment on President Trump’s proposed border wall, when a group of immigrants easily crossed the existing fence into the United States while cameras were rolling.
Soboroff asked a Border Patrol agent, “So what happens now? Does the president come out here and literally say, ‘okay, I like that one?’”
The agent replies, “We’re going to test it for breach-ability, for the sub-terrain aspect, can we dig under it, can we cut through it, scale over it?”
As he was talking, migrants jumped over the existing fence in order to get caught and hopefully receive asylum into the United States.
“What happened? People are crossing!” Soboroff said….
Greetings from Mexico. Got an up-close look at Trump's almost-done border wall prototypes from both sides of border. https://t.co/AJULBGx5RP
