Absurd” was the word that President Obama’s former head of the Border Security used when describing the democratic rebuttal to building Trump’s proposed border wall.

Mark Morgan, who led the US Border Patrol during Barack Obama’s presidency said, “It’s absurd, the arguments that are being made right now.” Morgan was largely referring to the arguments that Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and many left-wing pundits are offering in opposition to Trump’s wall.

Speaking recently on Fox News’ Cavuto Live, Morgan echoed President Trump’s message to America by saying the current situation at the southern border is indeed a “national security and humanitarian crisis.” He went on to say that President Obama and politicians from both sides of the aisle used the same kind of language then, as the President did in his recent Oval Office address.

He said that starting in 2014, the demographics of the people coming across the U.S. border started to change, ”we saw an influx in family units and unaccompanied minors. It was then, also, across the aisle on both sides that referred to that as a humanitarian crisis.”

He added that “nothing has changed” regarding governmental strategy on border security for years, indicating that a long-standing strategy of infrastructure, technology, and personnel — a multilayered approach which includes a wall — still works.

We Need to Do It All

Morgan went on to tell host Neil Cavuto, “I agree 100 percent with what the president is trying to do with all things related to border security. “This is not based on political ideology. It is based on 30 years of governmental service.” Morgan also served in the FBI for two decades.

Just as in the President’s address, Morgan said a wall or barrier is a necessary part of enhancing border security, but a wall alone cannot do the job. Morgan added that while the use of new technology and added personnel at the border are effective, they don’t solve the problems in and of themselves.

“We need to do it all, including the wall,” he said.

  1. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats want to bring millions of illegal immigrants into America. Why ? Because the Democrats see millions of voters that will vote for them. They are not doing this out of the milk of human kindness. Big Business is involved. They want cheap labor.

  2. Of course walls work. Walls/fences/barricades work. Otherwise, why did Obama get a mini-concrete plant at his new house and build reinforced thick concrete walls around the border of his property? Israel’s wall works and greatly lowered the daily terrorist attacks. The Pope’s wall around Vatican City worked to protect against the invading hordes of barbarian Muslims.

    Youngsters were riding their 4 wheelers through my neighbors property putting large ruts in the soft soil. He talked with me about and we determined if we both put up a sturdy fence, it would eliminate their short-cut and destruction and resulting erosion of his land. We did it. No more trouble.

    The border patrol want the barricade. Property owners near the border want the fence. American Hispanics want the wall.

  3. What’s the difference between Australia’s “Turn back the boats” and America’s “Building the Wall” strategy?
    Nothing, same strategy differing in name only. Call it what you will, people will die in the name for freedom and a better life. Neither country wants the debacle which happened in Europe when the border were opened for a short timer and then, closed again.

  4. You would have to be blind to not see that it is a national crisis. The Democrats simply want more votes even at the expense of destroying our nation.

  5. When is it going to be announced that the largest drug dealer in mexico is funding the democrats [Nazis] to the tune of 50 million dollars to fight trump. Is this usa democracy..

  6. The Damnednocrats are so determined to oppose President Trump at every turn that they are willing to screw this country, and continually contradict themselves. Why can’t their ignorant and diseducated base see what they are doing? Are the majority of Damnednocrat voters totally deaf, dumb and blind?

  7. I listen to boarder wall officers. And yes yes and yes. Nothing to do with politics. So please stop the crap. This is Discusting and disgraceful. Congress you must do something with illegals. This catch and release is crazy. CATCH AND SEND HOME. duh. Oh. Isn’t that what we do with our citizens.

  8. I firmly do believe that those Americans who say a wall is not needed say so purely for political, anti Trump reasons. Not their true beliefs.

  9. If left on there own the Democratic Party will finish what they have started The fall of America will come from with in Open boarders is there next step Please Don’t allow this to happen It’s to the point polisie thinks she’s president We have to fight back Some how I’m trusting in my party Republicans

  10. Build the wall! Walls do work the Border Security has spoken throughput the shutdowns how badly they need the wall in order to properly secure the borders and our Country. Common sense. Stop playing politics and get to work. President Trump is dead right on thos bill!!!!!

  11. I believe the wall is absolutely necessary to protect Americans from the evils that come with illegal immigration. I don’t believe drones and cameras can do the job without the wall. Common sense tells me that all those elements, along with the “boots on the ground” is the only way to accomplish the protection Americans deserve. It is obvious the Democrats oppose the wall because they hate Donald Trump. No other reason. The Democrats are putting their Party’s welfare above the ordinary American citizen.

  12. Dozens of experts on security and defense agree with President Trump that a wall is needed to achieve border security. Schumer, Pelosi, and most mainstream “journalists” are opposed to a wall for two reasons: (1) They hate Trump because he stands against their anti-American agenda, and (2) They want open borders, sanctuary cities, and millions of new Democrat voters–encouraged by numerous “freebies.” Without a left-wing biased media, Democrat politicians wouldn’t be able to brainwash citizens into following them in Pied Piper fashion. Just like Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels, said “If you tell a lie again and again, people will begin to believe it.” A year and a half after Mueller’s witch hunt against Donald Trump began, he has nothing to report but lies against our president. Democrat voters, ask yourselves why you won’t challenge what big media, Hollywood celebrities, and leftist politicians tell you. Many citizens will receive much larger tax refunds this year thanks to Donald Trump. If it were up to Nancy Pelosi, you would be paying much higher taxes than before.

  13. We have Americans starving even Americans college students garbage diving! We need the money spent efficiently (President said Mexico was going to pay for the wall??). There are better ways to protect our borders with technology, also most of the drugs come through are ports of entry. Ask yourself do you want to be like Russia? Remember the Berlin Wall?? Where did your family ancestory come from? Yes our law makers need to pass common sence laws that protect us as well as the people who are running away from tyranny. Maybe we need to help those South American countrys fight the tyranny instead of fighting in the middle east protecting the oil company’s assets?? RRemember the Tax cut the President and the REBULICAN CONGRESS PASSED BENEFITTED WHO? Your right the rich??? We need jobs!! Repairing our Highway system and bridges isn’t also what the President ran on to be elected???

  15. They need to listen to our president. He is trying to keep our country safe. President Trump is the greatest president we ever had and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are the most crooked people we ever had!!!

  16. I would suggest that they consider what is the best long term solution and NOT WHAT I WANT today!!!!!! The United States population continues to rapidly grow and in many areas there are many US citizens who do not have the food, housings, medical care etc because they cannot find a job which pays enough to cover the cost of these essentials. The U.S.A. CANNOT support ALL the people of the world!! We certainly do not need/want population which WANTS excess to DRUGS….
    WE MUST have a BARRIER
    So that the US has control over our country. KEEP THE USA SAFE for all!

  17. I worked for immigration for 7 years and saw the trouble they bring. It is not just illegals but terrorist coming across our borders they know how to walk right through our borders. The drugs and human traffic of others is terrible Our country is really going down the hill we need to put more inspectors on the borders also. I was so disappointed to see how little time was allowed to check vehicles through. It was expected to clear 120 cars an hour or two per minute. This was a joke to check documents and also the vehicles for hidden drugs. I m sure it is worse now. Please vote for those who will help protect our country.

    I served 20 years in the military to protect this country and now to see it fallfrom elected officials brings me to tears and outrage.

  18. Load all the DEMS. and the Republican SWAMP RATS on an old junk floating Barge. TOW it 20 miles out to sea.Take helicopters and Chum for SHARKS all around the barge. Then shoot a hole in the side of the barge.
    Then who makes it back to shore gets to keep there job. Maybe Are MAN TRUMP can get something Done.
    HA,HA, Just thinking out loud.

  19. FINALLY. Someone has spoken the truth about the Communist Democrats. I applaud you Ron Alford. Yes, it is only about votes. That way, they assure being re-elected to office. Keep their cushy jobs. Live the GOOD LIFE. At the U.S. citizens tax payers expense. Screw over the nation in the mean time. I say the winds of change are coming. Be ready.

    I did not join and serve in the military, years ago, for this outcome.

  20. ( Of course walls work. Walls/fences/barricades work. ) So do weapons. Let the fighting begin.

  21. Build the wall now Don’t we’re about Trump just get off your ass and do it fund the wall congress

  22. PLEASE STOP TALKING AND DO IT. BUILD THE WALL NO MATTER WHAT. THE LONGER YOU LET DEM
    STAND IN WAY THE MORE GROUND YOU ARE LOOSING. DO IT NOW! DONNA

  23. You are exactly correct. MANY people have FINALLY WISED UP and left the DEMOCOMMUNIST “PLANTATION”, gotten JOBS, and now are off the government “TEAT” (and DEMOCOMMUNIST CONTROL) The “ILLEGALS” are the “next” GULLIBLE plantation “residents” to use, and abuse for their “votes”, by the “USUAL FALSE PROMISES” of “free stuff”and “special treatment” as long as they “sign on” to the “plantation” and VOTE DEMOCOMMUNIST.
    THEN after the “voting” is done , they too, will be “forgotten” until “election time” comes again.

  24. Thank you for your service to our beloved country. Here is my opinion on the wall: Illegal immigration over the last 20 years has caused the dumming down of America. How? Look at our school systems….the need for funding education as doubled. Illegals bring children, have children who have to be educated. Most likely they do not pay various taxes that are designated for schools. Most do not speak English which has to be addressed through additional personnel in the schools, along with the language issue, theyare behind in all grade levels which again requires special instruction. Therefore, all American children who have the legal right to a free education are penalized. My grandchildren have larger class sizes, crowded schools as a result of illegal immigrants. This is just one of the many departments that cause the dumming down of America. People can call me a racist or whatever but the truth is right in front of us. I will not mention all of the Americans who are poor & cannot get the monetary support they need. As you can tell, I am a strong supporter of education for our children.

  25. Term Limits! I didn’t want to vote for Mark Wayne Mullen’s because he lied about only wanting to serve 2 terms but I felt voting for him was the less of two evils. Enough is enough! I’m sick of career politicians. What do we have to do get term limits on Congress and Senate? Why do they get the retirement package that is way too generous and out of line with reality when seniors like myself have to depend on Soc Sec and what we have saved from working hard all our life and saving or investing our own hard earned money? Almost every politician leaves office with a lot more money than they had when took office. We put people in jail for insider trading, politicians are privy to information that citizens aren’t they use this information to gain personal wealth and influence. Term limits would limit their power to continue this unethical behavior.
