Posted on 01/18/2011 12:04:18 PM PST by markomalley
Less than 18 seconds. That's how long it took two young women to climb a U.S.-Mexico border fence that costs millions of dollars in taxpayer money.
In a video shot by filmmaker Roy Germano, two women show how easy it is to reach the top by climbing the fence's concrete-filled steel pipes in less than 18 seconds, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

Why isn’t the fence electrified?
Ditto on the double fence with landmines. This is a war. We are being invaded. People in the wrong place ought to be treated as enemy combatants.
Who says they tried to make the fence hard to circumvent?
Both the Democrats and Republicans want open borders. Why would anyone think they would do anything about it that works?
This just reinforces my view that the agencies formerly known as INS remain the most incompetent in the government.
And that’s 8 months pregnant with one leg!
Inhumane, I suppose.
Where the hell is the razor wire? Let them try and pass through that stuff.
Cover them with razor wire? Moats on the US side full of snakes? They are not trying very hard (the US gov’t, I mean).
Looks like they need to grease the fence.
It’s more of a fitness test, designed to keep medical costs lower.
so I guess Mexico has a corner on the Gold with their 2012 Womens Olympic Fence Climbing Team....
“Why isnt the fence electrified?”
Same reason as why there is no razor wire on top of the fence.
Where the hell is the razor wire? Let them try and pass through that stuff.
I have seen video of a security fence on the South Africa-Mozambigue border that is not only made of razor wire, but with the flip of a switch, can be charged with a deadly electric current. So why was Nelson Mandela allowed to have one and we aren’t?
One of the best ways t take care of this is to simply man the border with enough troops to secure it.
Obama has refused to do this, while hiding from the American public that Mexico’s government is heading for a state of utter collapse.Wiki leak State Dept. memos have verified this.
All we can do is rid ourselves of the idiot leftists who are in power and get a government who will observe its constitutional duty to secure the nation from this invasion.Anything less than that will never work.Its not about the physical border itself, its about manning it with soldiers and firepower.
Climbing — you want to see some climbing? Just try to keep this guy outside a fence.
Watch the move he pulls at 1:13 mark. Unbelievable.
Seriously, they should have grabbed a couple babes from Sabado Gigante and let them climb it. They could even stay once they cleared it.
“Better than Pyle. Sign ’em up. We’ll make Americans out of those ladies yet.”
Well, hell.. let’s just create little accessible compartments so they can slide their weapons through more easily. If they’re going to occupy parts of the United States, why make it hard for them?
That ain’t the US border fence. That’s a relic
As was noted in the video - much or even most of the fence was not built to specs. It was supposed to be a Double fence with a patrolled road in between with all kinds of sensors detecting the intruders in the road in between the fences. And the concrete filled pipes with out other barriers was not a part of the approved design.
Where built correctly - the fence works. Build a car incorrectly and it doesn’t run or run well. So it is no surprise that the border fence doesn’t work along much of its length.
Unlike other countries, we are not allowed to use it. The Southern Poverty Law Center, ACLU and the Mexican government disapproved.
So there can be no objection by the La Raza & Reconquista folks, can there?
These fences do not work, who are we kidding—it is all about supply and demand, where there is a demand for workers in the US, there will always be an endless supply of immigrants to do the endless service jobs, whether temporary or full time.
When and Where there is a demand for drugs by Americans..fences will not stop the supply.
Immigrants do not necessarily want to live here, vote here, pay taxes here and become citizens; they just want a job or second job while continuing to live in Mexico etc.
To think that everyone who wants a job in the US wishes to give up living in their own country, the family nucleus-which is a proud heritage no matter the economic status, is a real misnomer.
Illegal aliens breaking in PING
That thing is just such a total waste of money. A completely conventional double hurricane fence, topped with barbed wire, an anti-vehicular ditch and a couple rolls of concertina wire out front, with a patrol road between the two fences and sensor towers every so often would be way cheaper and (properly manned and maintained) 99% effective.
If the only people who got across the border were young girls strong enough to climb the fence that way, I think we could live with that. Strong, healthy teen girls aren’t the real problem with illegal immigration.

Yep. Tell a old, former, East German border guard that fences can’t be made effective. I’ll bet he will tell you otherwise.
Not just that, but its sort of a test for the fittest of the illegal aliens. Anybody who can climb this fence like this is in pretty good shape. If we are going to keep them anyway, better make sure we get the best specimens.
Those had watch stations with machine gun wielding guards, with orders to shoot to kill.

But the libs would cry it evil if we had snipers and heavy machine guns like the Eastern side of the Berlin Wall did. Yesterday, it seemed like the libs were communists. Today, they sound like something even funnier: the rejects of the Communists.
How about some sharks with frickin’ lasers? Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout! :)
The manning of the border is the real issue. The fence is just something to slow them down, but by itself is ineffective. Once again, America needs to learn from the Israelis.
“Those had watch stations with machine gun wielding guards, with orders to shoot to kill”
Umm... Ya, and I find nothing wrong with that. Do you? If you electrify the fence it can maim and injure. So could
concertina wire. Is being injured that way, morally, more acceptable than being shot? After the first few fence climbers are shot off of it, allot fewer will try. So armed guards in towers may mean FEWER injuries.
Not many people succeeded in getting through the East German border fence, because it was SHOWN to be DANGEROUS.
If you make the fence 10 feet higher - with no other deterrent - they will climb 10 feet higher and go over.
Better yet, a seawater moat, 25 feet wide, inhabited by sharks with frickin' lasers!
Very physically fit women.
to a degree, but I think the lure of a better life, the public dole and anchor babies provide the most motivation.
That idea would clearly pay for itself as a tourist attraction.
Best of all, we could have Fonzie jump over the moat every year when we celebrate its completion. It’s a win-win situation for everybody, if you include the Fonz! Ayyyyy!
I’m amazed the fence doesn’t have a gate
Education, yes all parents want that for their children and access to exceptional medical care--so for those reasons combined they seek our America. Perhaps this is where privately run [aka corporate] education would benefit over government owned. "Opening soon a new school by you." Worldwide projection.
And perhaps I am painting too broad a brush stroke as well..but I do think being in poverty with a neighbor who seems to have all the riches makes one want to reach for the same golden ring.
Past Mexico's President Fox granting duel citizenship was the cherry on top.
But you follow the money and the money is in America.
Designed by DemocRATS. There are all kinds of fencing and wall designs that would be extremely effective at keeping illegals out. The Israelis are pretty good at building them. Our engineers would be just as good at building them as the Israelis are, better even — if only the RATS would let them.
I’d bet good money that both of those girls are rock climbers.
When all the world puts down the US, it is noted by conservatives that we are the one country in the world where all the world wants to live, and no one wants to leave.
My state has now put back into effect that government authorities may ask residence status, and even though we do not have that many illegal immigrants in our state, it was to discourage others from coming here. This was also to discourage people coming here from PA or where ever looking for handouts. That was the first promise put into effect by the new governor of Maine. Of course the NAACP are here up in arms and other liberal groups charging prejudice especially when the governor attended the memorial services of a law office on MLK Day instead of attending breakfast lunch or dinner events with the NAACP.
As this was voiced in the negative in the media, the governor replied if they didn't like it they could kiss his butt..lol
