The other day our so-called ďpresidentĒ lurched from his customary verbal ramblings down into total, baffling incoherence. He seemed to have poured those ďbest wordsĒ of his into a pot and stirred the resulting mess with his eyes closed. Youíve heard snippets on TV (one is below), but I urge you to puzzle your way through the whole transcript. And be afraid. Be very afraid.
They say walls donít work. Walls work 100 percent. Whether itís El Paso ó I really was smiling, because the other night I was in El Paso ó we had a tremendous crowd, and ó tremendous crowd. And I asked the people ó many of whom were from El Paso, but they came from all over Texas. And I asked them. I said, ďLet me ask you, as a crowd: When the wall went up, was it better?Ē You were there, some of you. It was not only better; it was like 100 percent better. You know what they did.
But thatís only one example. There are so many examples. In El Paso, they have close to 2,000 murders right on the other side of the wall. And they had 23 murders. Itís a lot of murders, but itís not close to 2,000 murders right on the other side of the wall, in Mexico.
So everyone knows that walls work. And there are better examples than El Paso, frankly. You just take a look. Almost everywhere. Take a look at Israel. Theyíre building another wall. Their wall is 99.9 percent effective, they told me ó 99.9 percent. Thatís what it would be with us, too.
The only weakness is they go to a wall and then they go around the wall. They go around the wall and in. Okay? Thatís what it is. Itís very simple. And a big majority of the big drugs ó the big drug loads ó donít go through ports of entry. They canít go through ports of entry. You canít take big loads because you have people ó we have some very capable people; the Border Patrol, law enforcement ó looking.
You canít take human traffic ó women and girls ó you canít take them through ports of entry. You canít have them tied up in the backseat of a car or a truck or a van. They open the door. They look. They canít see three women with tape on their mouth or three women whose hands are tied.
