Barack Obama’s legacy continues to be eroded daily by the Trump administration.
The 44th president’s border patrol chief is going against his former boss and siding with the current president on building a wall at the southern border.
When asked, Is the wall (or a barrier) the best solution?, here’s what Mark Morgan had to say during an interview with The Daily Wire:
“That’s a good question, and I think that’s another reason why decided to break my silence because the rhetoric is really getting twisted, and it really confuses and misinforms the American people.”
“The answer is, “yeah,” but there’s a comma. So yes, the wall works. It’s not needed everywhere, but it is needed in strategic locations along the southwest border. And what do we mean by the wall? The border security experts will tell you that the wall in and of itself is not the solution. The wall is a critical element as part of a multilayer strategy of infrastructure, technology, and personnel. So yes, as part of that multilayer approach, the wall absolutely works and there’s historical data that can prove that. You can go to San Diego, Nogales, El Paso, anywhere where that multilayered approach has been used, where the wall is part of that, and illegal immigration has drastically reduced by around 90%, and overall crime in those areas has drastically reduced as well. It’s not hyperbole; it’s not driven by political ideology. That’s fact, and data can show that.”
Morgan was then asked, What is the proof that a physical barrier would work?
He noted, “Go talk to the Yuma County Sheriff, and he’ll tell you that in 2005, 2006 when they started building the wall as part of that multilayer strategy, it works. He’ll say illegal immigration in that area went down 90%, overall crime in his county went down drastically. It’s just fact.”
Morgan spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson earlier in the month…
From Daily Wire:
Mark Morgan, Border Patrol chief for former President Barack Obama, told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday that physical border barriers “absolutely work” and that President Donald Trump is “right” when it comes to the southern border.
When Carlson asked Morgan, who was dismissed by the Trump administration, whether border walls work, Morgan responded: “Yes, they absolutely work.”

MSNBC isn’t even trying anymore. Whatever they can do to trash President Trump, they’ll do.
For example, here’s what host Lawrence O’Donnell has to say about border patrol:
“They destroy water bottles that are left in the desert by Samaritans that are doing what Donald Trump’s bible tells them to do.”
The video shown by O’Donnell is from 2011 and wasn’t published until 2013.
Who was president during that time?
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.
The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.
ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”
“This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.”
JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.”
Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.
Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.
One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.
It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.
According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.
MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”
During an off-the-rails segment Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with host Chris Matthews, two separate panelists claimed that Trump’s hush money payments in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal “robbed the American people of their right to vote.”
