Now, I won’t go into how a border wall will affect wildlife, especially endangered species, but I will stick to what Factcheck.org says about the dotard’s statements concerning the non-existent border crisis (and btw, I have friends who live in TX and they, as well as their friends don’t want a border wall nor do many living on the border).
El Paso has never been one of the most dangerous cities: https://www.factcheck.org/2019/01/trump-wrong-about-wall-effect-in-el-paso/ It has the third lowest crime rate, in 2005, 2006, and 2007 out the 35 largest cities in the U.S.
El Paso has long been a relatively safe city, even though it sits just across the Rio Grande River from sister city Ciudad Juarez, one of the most dangerous cities not only in Mexico, but in all of the world.
57 miles of 18 feet high fence was constructed in 2006 already (which he had nothing to do with) and finished in 2009. Apprehensions since the construction of this fence have dropped greatly from what they were and are still low, but the dotard can’t take credit for this.
"El Paso ... went from being one of the most dangerous cities in the country to one of the safest cities in the country overnight" after “a wall was put up” along the Mexico border. Speech in Louisiana – Monday, January 14, 2019
This statement was declared false by factcheck.org and as far as a border crisis that is false too. https://www.factcheck.org/2019/01/factchecking-trumps-immigration-address/ Illegal border crossing continue to remain low. A wall won’t stop drug smuggling or human smuggling. Sadly, much of this stuff gets past legal ports of entry or POEs. https://www.factcheck.org/2019/02/factchecking-trumps-national-emergency-remarks/
Lastly the “Fast and Furious” scandal. Not a truth to it: https://www.factcheck.org/2019/03/trump-wrong-about-obama-documents/ Of course, I can go to other fact checking sites if anyone would like, but unless they support the dotard like his propaganda pipeline Faux News does, they all say virtually the same thing. The dotard lies much of the time and tells very little truth.
