CBP reports 65 miles of new border wall constructed


DO MEAN SOMETHING. JEDEDIAH: HERE TO REACT, ACTING COMMISSIONER OF U.S CUSTOMS & BORDER PROTECTION MARK MORGAN.>>GOOD MORNING. THANK YOU. JEDEDIAH: WE’RE NOW AT A POINT WHERE ERIC HOLDER HAS TO COME OUT AND TRY TO RESTORE SANITY. HE IS THE ONE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT WHY BORDERS MATTER. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY?>>SO JEDEDIAH, FIRST OF ALL, YOU KNOW, IT IS INTERESTING, I HOPE PEOPLE NOW ARE ACTUALLY LISTENING TO WHAT FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER SAID, IF THIS HAPPENS, IF WE PUT A MORATORIUM ON DEPORTATIONS, YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY, IN UNBELIEVABLE NUMBERS. IT IS ABSOLUTELY GIVE THE SIGNAL WE HAVE OPEN BORDERS. IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THINK WHAT WE’RE EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW IS A CRISIS, IT WILL MAKE THIS LOOK LIKE AN DAY GOING FORWARD. IT IS INCREDULOUS SOMEBODY WOULD SAY THAT AT THIS TIME. PETE: BORDER APPREHENSIONS DROPPED, ENFORCEMENT GOES UP. WE DO HAVE A FOX NEWS ALERT. A BORDER PATROL AGENT WAS SHOT AN INJURED FRIDAY NIGHT CONDUCTING A TRAFFIC STOP NEAR THE TEXAS-MEXICO BORDER. ANOTHER AGENT SHOT AND KILLED THE GUNMAN ARE THE NEWS REPORTS. THERE ARE STILL INCIDENTS GOING ON IN THE BORDER, HOW IS OUR COOPERATION WITH MEXICO GOING OVERALL?>>I WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THAT THE AGENTS, WE HAD AN AGENT THAT WAS SHOT, HE ACTUALLY SURVIVED BECAUSE HE WAS WEARING A BALLISTIC VEST. I REALLY WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT MAKE SURE THEY’RE WEARING THEIR BALLISTIC VEST GOING FORWARD. THAT ABSOLUTELY SAVED HIS LIFE. I TALKED TO BOTH AGENTS YESTERDAY. THEY’RE BOTH DOING OKAY AT THIS TIME. GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO STEPPED UP IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS. THIS PRESIDENT, THIS CURRENT ADMINISTRATION, NEGOTIATIONS WITH NOT JUST THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO BUT NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES GOT THEM TO STEP UP, ACTED AS TRUE PARTNERS. SEE THIS AS REGIONAL CRISIS THAT IT IS. NOT JUST A UNITED STATES CRISIS. THEY’RE DOING A TREMENDOUS JOB. WE STILL NEED THEM TO CONTINUED WORKFORCE TO SUSTAIN THIS, CONTINUE EFFORTS TO SUPPORT THE MIGRANT PROTECTION PROTOCOL. MAKE NO MISTAKE THEY’RE DOING INCREDIBLE JOB SUPPORTING US. THAT IS SIGNIFICANT REASON WHY WE HAVE SEEN A 57% REDUCTION IN APPREHENSIONS JUST OVER THE THE 90 DAYS. ED: WE’VE SEEN THE REPORTS, YOUR AGENCY AS WELL AS U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS CONSTRUCTING A 65 MILES OF NEW BORDER WALL. I SAW A REPORT SUGGESTING THERE IS ANOTHER 20 MILES THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE CONSTRUCTED THAT HAS BEEN PUT ON HOLD BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT. WHAT IS FACT, WHAT IS FICTION?>>ED, I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED THIS QUESTION. THE LATTER PART OF THAT IS COMPLETE FICTION. IT’S A COMPLETE FALSE NARRATIVE. RIGHT NOW NOW 5 MILES OF NEW WALL YOU JUST MENTIONED. EVERY SINGLE MILE OF WALL THAT IS BEING BUILT EXPONENTIALLY INCREASES BORDER PATROLS CAPACITY TO SAFEGUARD THIS COUNTRY. RIGHT NOW, WITH THE RECENT SUPREME COURT DECISION AND SECRETARY OF DEFENSE AUTHORIZING ADDITIONAL MONEY, WE’RE FULL ON BOARD. WE’RE STARTING PROJECTS IN MULTIPLE LOCATIONS SIMULTANEOUS. NOTHING HAS BEEN PUT ON HOLD. BY THE END OF 2020 WE’RE STILL LOOKING TO BE ON TRACK FOR OVER OVER 4 NEW MILES OF BORDER WALL. PETE: BRIEFLY, MR. COMMISSIONER. THE RULING ON SUPREME OCCUR WE DENIED A ASYLUM TO PEOPLE WHO WENT THROUGH MEXICO FIRST, WHAT IMPACT WILL THIS HAVE.>>WE’RE ABLE TO IMPLEMENT THIS IMMEDIATELY ON THE SOUTHWEST BORDER. HERE IS WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND, WHAT THIS RULE SAYS IF YOU’RE FLEEING A COUNTRY BECAUSE OF PERSECUTION, VIOLENCE OR ANOTHER LEGITIMATE ASYLUM CLAIM, WE WANT TO YOU SEEK HELP AND RELIEF FROM THE FIRST COUNTRY YOU GET TO. DON’T GIVE YOUR MONEY, DON’T MORTGAGE YOUR HOME, AND GIVE THAT MONEY TO THE CARTELS, RISK YOUR LIVES TO TRAVERSE OVER MULTIPLE COUNTRIES TO GET RELIEF THIS RULE TELLING VULNERABLE POPULATION, STOP AT THE FIRST COUNTRY YOU COME TO, GET RELIEF THERE. THAT IS WHAT THIS RULE IS ABOUT. PETE: IMPORTANT STUFF.
