Mexican immigrants say wall might slow them down but won’t stop them from crossing illegally

President Donald Trump visited California on Tuesday where he inspected the eight prototypes for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

But Eladio Sanchez, who lives in Tijuana, Mexico, said a wall wouldn’t stop him from crossing illegally into the United States, Agence France Presse reported.

Two have “see-through” features, and one has an angular barrier at the top, which Trump told reporters would be the toughest to climb.

Sanchez, who can see the prototypes from his home near the border, told the AFP that the wall with the angular barrier might slow him down more than the other walls, but won’t stop him.

Sergio Tamai, who runs a migrant shelter in the border city of Mexicali and founder of immigrant advocacy group, Angels Without Borders, told the AFP that migrants will always find a way to cross the border.
