OpEd: Trump admits no border wall can fix the asylum issue

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following Opinion Editorial, written by Eddie Scarry and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

As important as building more miles of wall on the border is, it will do absolutely nothing to address one of the biggest problems with immigration in Texas, as President Trump just acknowledged.

Border Patrol agents at the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas told me that the pieces of wall constructed in Texas right now are immensely effective in apprehending immigrants crossing from Mexico. But as Fox News reporter John Roberts said Friday to Trump in the Oval Office, the wall doesn’t actually sit on the border, separating the U.S. from Mexico.

The border wall separates the U.S. from more of the U.S., an expansive mass of land covered in brush, trees, and dirt, all the way to the Rio Grande. The river, just a few yards wide, is the border, and a wall can’t be built right along hundreds of miles of river.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump admitted that the issue requires more than a wall. “Well, we’re going to solve the problem, and we’re also working on different things because there’s so many loopholes,” he said. “You’re right, touch the land and all of a sudden it’s a catch-and-release deal. They go into the country and in some cases, if they’re criminals, they’re released into our country. It’s a ridiculous thing. It’s a loophole.”
