Mexican Politician: Even With Wall, I Can Jump Into US

Posted March 03, 2017

A Mexican official climbed on top of the USA border wall Thursday in protest of President Donald Trump's immigration policies.

'I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here, ' Guerra said in the video, according to ABC News. After he took the oath of office in January, Trump signed an executive order authorizing the construction of the wall.

"Simple to climb the #Wall but there are many dangers to our people".

People have been condemning Trump's decision of building the wall across the border by protesting all over the United States.

Earlier, during the presidential campaign, Trump promised that the funds for the wall will come from Mexico but later he said that Mexico would rather reimburse the amount to US.

"Human rights, principles and dignity are non-negotiable."

Guerra said the two other people sitting on the fence in the photo happened to be climbing the fence as he was there.

Braulio Guerra posted a video and photos of himself perched atop the wall.

As he peers down at Pacific beaches on either side of the fence, Guerra harks back to what he views as a friendlier period of diplomacy.

US Customs and Border Protection last week gave notice that it will soon start collecting proposals from companies that want to design and build "prototype wall structures".

Still others questioned whether he had really climbed the fence himself, as the video doesn't show him doing it.

An internal Department of Homeland security report put the cost of a wall at $21billion, far higher than Trump's recent estimate of $12billion, reported CNN Monday.
