U.S. special operations forces spent the last three weeks attempting to scale the wall prototypes on America’s southern border with Mexico to determine if illegal aliens could cross the barrier.

The result, according to National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, is that illegal aliens and criminal cartels shouldn’t be able to defeat the obstacle.

“We put the special forces to go up against this wall and they can’t defeat this wall,” Judd told Fox News. “And if the special forces can’t defeat this wall, the criminal cartels are not going to defeat the wall either.”

Judd says that his organization prefers the wall prototype that features fencing on the bottom that would allow patrol agents to see through to the other side.

“We want to be able to see the threats that are coming from the other side of the wall. If we can see that, we can defend against it.”

In addition to the wall’s daunting 30-foot height, the round piping on top acts as a secondary detriment since it prevents hooking.

Judd praised the administration of President Donald Trump for doing the due diligence and research related to the project.

“What we’re seeing is this isn’t typical government. Typical government is to see a wound and try to cover it up with a bandaid,” Judd said.

“What we’ve seen with this president is he has actually put research and development into this project. This is months long,” Judd continued. “This isn’t something that we just threw together at a whim like what you normally see the government do.”

Illegal border crossings dropped 24 percent under Trump in 2017.

On Satrurday, Trump released a 30-second ad in support of building the wall. The ad says that Democrats who are complicit in obstructing the president’s campaign promise to build the wall will be complicit in the murders of U.S. citizens at the hands of illegal aliens.

The short clip features convicted killer Luis Bracamontes who was recorded bragging about killing two police officers during a court session.

“The only thing that I [expletive] regret is that I [expletive] just killed two,” Bracamontes said. “I will break out soon and I will kill more. I wish I killed more of those [expletive].”
