CBP releases drone footage showing ‘new wall system’ being built


BRIAN: 60 MILES OF BRAND NEW WALL GOING UP AT THE ARIZONA BORDER. U.S. CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION RELEASING THIS DRONE FOOTAGE ANNOUNCING THEY EXPECT IT TO BE COMPLETE, 450 MILES BY THE END OF 2020. HIRE WITH MORE IS ACTING COMMISSIONER OF U.S. CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION MARK MORGAN. MARK, SO WHAT WE WERE JUST WATCHING, HOW NEW IS THAT?>>SO, IT’S BRAND NEW. AND THERE’S A FALSE NARRATIVE OUT THERE THAT REALLY WANTS TO MAKE A BIG DEAL ABOUT THAT. THAT IT REPLACEMENT. THIS HEARKENS BACK TO WHEN WE CALLED IT A FENCE, A WALL, A BARRIER. LOOK, WHAT WAS THERE WAS OLD, DILAPIDATED AND DIDN’T WORK. EVERY MILE THAT’S BEING BUILT IS ABSOLUTELY A NEW WALL. AND IT’S NOT JUST WALL, BRIAN. IT’S A WALL SYSTEM. IT HAS INTEGRATED LIGHTING, TECHNOLOGY, ACCESS ROADS IT. ABSOLUTELY AND I HAVE BEEN SAILING THIS WITH EACH MILE THAT’S BUILT, THIS COUNTRY IS MORE SAFE. AND IF YOU ASK THE MEN AND WOMEN OF BORDER PATROL, THIS PRESIDENT HAS GIVEN THEM EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR. THIS BRAND NEW BALLARD TYPE WALL THAT’S WHAT THE EXPERTS ASKED FOR AND THAT’S WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS DELIVERING. BRIAN: READING AXIOS YESTERDAY AFTER TWO AND A HALF YEARS AFTER TRUMP TOOK OFFICE HE PROMISED A NEW WALL ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER. HIS ADMINISTRATION CANNOT TELL US THE FIRST MILE OF NEW WALL THAT’S BEEN BUILT. IS AXIOS WRONG?>>THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY WRONG, BRIAN. EVERY MILE THOSE 60 MILES HAVE BEEN BUILT, THAT’S A NEW WALL. JUST AS I SAID. IN ADDITION TO THAT WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO CONVOLUTE IS NEW ADDITIONAL LINEAR MILES OF WALL. AND RIGHT NOW, THAT’S ALSO BEEN UNDERWAY. AND RGV ONE OF THE STRATEGIC LOCATES RIGHT NOW WE HAVE BEEN ACQUIRING LAND FOR A LONG TIME. AND WE ARE ANTICIPATING CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN SOON OF ALMOST 100 NEW MILES OF LINEAR WALL IN THE RBG AREA SO THAT’S JUST THOUGHT ACCURATE. BRIAN: MARK, YOU WERE EXPECTING THIS BUT IT’S HAPPENED. 19 STATES AND WASHINGTON, D.C. HAVE LAUNCHED NEW LAWSUITS AGAINST THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OVER CHANGES TO THE FLORES RULE THAT WOULD ALLOW YOU TO BE ABLE TO KEEP UNACCOMPANIED MINORS AND MINORS WITH THEIR FAMILIES LONGER THAN 20 DAYS. YOU ARE EXPECTING THE SUIT. ARE YOU READY TO FIGHT TORE THE SUIT. WHAT IS YOUR BEST PITCH TO OVERTURN THE FLORES RULE?>>HERE’S TWO BEST PICTURES. ONE IS THE NEW FLORES REGULATION NOT ONLY DOES IT MEET THE FLORES SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT PARAMETERS, IT ACTUALLY EXCEEDS THEM FOR THE CARE THAT WE WILL PROVIDE IN THESE RESIDENTIAL CENTERS FOR THESE CHILDREN. IN ADDITION TO THAT, IT ACTUALLY WILL MAKE SURE THAT THE FAMILIES ARE HELD TOGETHER. AND HERE’S A REALLY QUICK FALSE NARROW THAF NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. THIS IS NOT ABOUT INDEFINITE DETENTION. IF ANYBODY SAYS THAT, THAT’S AN ABSOLUTE LIE. WE ARE WANTING TO HOLD THEM TOGETHER AS A FAMILY IN A GOOD, SAFE ENVIRONMENT JUST DURING THE IMMIGRATION PROCEEDINGS WHICH HISTORY SHOWS US TAKES BETWEEN 40 AND 60 DAYS. BRIAN: YOU FEEL IF YOU PUT 45 DAYS IN THEY WILL START PLAYING WITH THAT. 60 DAYS IN PLAY WITH THAT YOU PUT THE WORD INDEFINITE IN THERE BUT DOESN’T MEAN INDEFINITE. IT’S AN ORDER TO GET THEM PROCESSED STAY OR GO, RIGHT?>>EXACTLY RIGHT. WHAT WE HAVE SEEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN IF WE PUT LIMITATIONS IN THERE THEN THEY GAME THE SYSTEM AND THEY GET PASSED THAT AND END UP HAVING TO RELEASE THEM. PUTTING THAT WORD IN THERE ALLOWS TO US MAINTAIN THEM DURING THE PROCESS. BRIAN: IT’S AMAZING. MOST OF THESE 19 STATES HAVE INCREDIBLE HOMELESS PROBLEM. THEY ARE TAXED UP TO THE GILLS. YET THEY WANT TO TAKE IN ILLEGALS AT RANDOM PACE.
