    If they try digging tunnels under the Wall, fill it with concrete.

    The photo of the slat wall breach was not done by a regular “saw”. The steel portion was cut with a torch, evidenced by the dross around the cut. The concrete portion would need to be cut with a diamond blade saw. Now you need to get these to the border. A torch set up will weigh at least 200 pounds for small bottles of oxygen and acetylene along with the torch, hoses and cart. A diamond tooth saw will need power to operate, so now you need, the saw itself and either a generator or compressor, which will also require a generator. So, you are looking at around 500 pounds of equipment that you will have to pull, push or drag across the desert to get to the wall. Considering that groups that attempt to cross the border are fair small, this is not going to happen. I have been looking for the test report on this breach, as it will show time required and a list of tools used during this test. NBC is trying to pull a fast one on the public again by not stating these facts. The government paid for this testing and that means there is a report.

    YIKES— Border Patrol likes this design, because they can easily watch action from the other side.
    Some different building material is necessary. Just not this. It’s not a design flaw. It’s a “materials” flaw.

    The military will have the best of the best. Whatever that is, it’s worth every dollar. BUILD THE WALL

    Pictures look like the wall was cut with a torch.
    A big old piece of rebar should be in the middle, they would still be sawing.
    That’s why all military should have live fire up and down the boarders, what wall.
