Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON D.C. The presidents right... And its not based on a personal political ideology. Its based on historical data and facts that can be proven. I cannot think of a legitimate argument" against building a border wall said Mark Morgan who is the former Border Patrol Chief for Pres. Barack Obama during an interview with Fox News Tucker Carlson on Monday.
When asked if walls are effective Morgan said
They absolutely work. If you look in the past and you dont have to go too far back in history to see that bipartisan legislation has passed:Morgan was removed from his position by President Trump but nonetheless says Trumps right about the need for a wall based on historical fact and the experience of hands-on border experts:
Its a wall. It works."
- The Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012
- Bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier or whatever you want to call it.
I believe in what the president is doing. When he says this is a national security problem hes absolutely correct. And that doesnt come just from me that comes from professionals whove been doing this their entire adult lives serving the country on the border protecting the citizens. Theyre saying it works. Why arent we listening to the experts and people who do it every day? I dont understand it."Morgan said he believes opposition to building some form of barrier is based on personal dislike of Donald Trump rather than on the substance of the presidents reasons for advocating it:
Were too wrapped in the style the approach the fact that its coming from the current president rather than the substantive issues. I cannot think of a legitimate argument why anyone would not support the wall as part of a multi-layered border security issue." said Morgan.
