NOGALES, AZ - The higher the wall, the harder they will fall. That's what border crossers trying to scale the new border fence at Nogales are painfully finding out.
The imposing new border fence running through Nogales is proving to be a treacherous obstacle for suspected illegal immigrants
A Nogales Police Department report says on Aug. 12, a woman broke her leg after climbing the border fence.
Two days later, officers found a second injured fence climber. And a third, suspected illegal immigrant from China fell and broke his leg on Aug 22.

And what about the handicapped illegal immigrants?
Shouldn’t they have a wheel chair ramp every so
No doubt they’ll all be suing the State of AZ for damages.
Grease it on both sides.
But, but a fence wont’t work and a waste of time!!!
Seems like it’s at least slowing them down. Every little bit helps. Add in crocks, land mines, and sharp shooters and that’ll slow ‘em down even more.
And if they’d have built double-fencing as they should have, the casualties might not have tried in the first place.
This can’t be true, don’t believe your lying eyes.
I have it on good authority that such fences do not work. Just ran across that on a Perry thread, where Perry’s opposition to a border fence was justified for that very reason.
OSHA will probably check into it,this is a illegal immigrants job after all.
Maybe it could be electrified with a “green energy” windmill or solar panels.
Throw them back over! This is not our job to rehabilitate these border criminals,they came from Mexico throw them back!
SHEESH! Logic says build ‘em higher, and break both legs.
"Pork fat rules!"
So the “reconquista” invaders are hurting themselves invading sovereign land where many places deem it approriate to respond to such actions with being shot on sight? GOOD!
Sounds like a wall on the border would work fine.
Put some decoy gators in the Rio Grande. Also, a few speakers with random gun shots and screaming coming from the US side of the fence ought to slow down the invasion.
How long before some slip-and-fall lawyer signs them up for a class action lawsuit against the government?
And how long after that before the government agrees to pay them medical and damages, give them amnesty and remove the fence?
But the back side of the fence can be a real bear as this story indicates. And it's pretty easy to catch someone with a broken leg or ankle.
So Perry's quip is lame (pun intended).
I like a nice sign warning about landmines. And having actual landmines, too.
And a third, suspected illegal immigrant from China fell and broke his leg on Aug 22....
Not on both sides, of course.
Well, good grief, that fence didn’t work. Look who’s in there now!
“This cant be true, dont believe your lying eyes. I have it on good authority that such fences do not work. Just ran across that on a Perry thread, where Perrys opposition to a border fence was justified for that very reason.”
Didn’t Perry say that if you build a 30-foot fence, they’ll bring a 32-foot ladder?
Seems to me a fall of 30 feet down the other side would slow down a border jumper enough to make it pretty easy for the Border Patrol to catch them, pick them up, and throw them back over the fence.
You bad boy.
Three broken legs vs how many who scaled the wall and weren’t hurt? Wow......that’s really effective.
We need to add some more height to this thing, and increase the fall from orthopedic to neurological height.
Yup. Perry seems to have a great deal of faith in ladders and not much in fences.
I have noticed that some high security installations employ fences, so evidently they didn’t get Perry’s memo.
Maybe they could get Lee Ermey out there to motivate them over. No?
It works in many places but not along the Rio Grande.
Then what are you going to do? My uncle was the sheriff of Hudspeth County, right along the border east of El Paso. In his day there was very little movement across the border. You mostly worried about the occasional rabid dog straying over.
But today that’s all changed. Cartels are smuggling drugs and people across into Hudspeth. That border is now dangerous. If not a fence, what would you do?
But, but senor Ricardo Perry says fences don’t do nada.
The drug cartel's will tunnel and I understand the dangers but ceding the Rio Grande to the Mexicans is not something I am willing to do.
Truth be told, the actual fix for this is a mile wide demilitarized zone with a fence on their side of the Rio Grande, but of course that would mean war.
This is the article I was talking about earlier today.
Land that isn't included in the park is privately owned and water from the river is used for irrigation and livestock. You can't cut a landowner off from his only source of water.
No fence not under constant surveillance by an armed force willing to use deadly force will keep out someone determined to cross.
In a time of cuts, Texas doubled it's budget for border security.
If fences are so good, why not put up a 20 foot one on the North Korea/South Korea DMZ. That should allow a few troops to be sent home because the fence should do the job. Not!
Sounds to me like they need some more concertina wire on top - and in the potential landing area!
Rick Perry was right. I have to give him credit where credit is due. Who would ever have thought a fence could become The Lottery Ticket for Mexicans.
They come here for all the freebies that they will get, once on our soil.
If you put a big juicy steak outside a fence that houses a starving dog, I guarantee he will find a way to get to it!
Take the teat away!
When there is no longer food stamps, no welfare assistance, no subsidized housing, no employers that will hire them, no cheap paying jobs paying cash under the table, no free medical care, no free education for their children, no free scholarships for those who go to our high schools illegally, no ID's to steal - they will stop coming here!
BUT - it seems that both parties in DC are reticent to do a dang thing about it!
And every single day, THOUSANDS more manage to get onto the soil of the "Land of the Free" - where EVERYTHING is FREE for them!
That should allow a few troops to be sent home because the fence should do the job.
Fences stop people, not tanks.
Right about what?? Open borders and helping to build Mosques?
Ping - I give up - Post 46 tells why. It is a lost cause, I now fear. As long as we supply the teat with free milk, the hungry will attach.
Now you're making things up. Rick Perry has called for 1000 troops to be placed on the Texas/Mexican border time and time again.
If you want to know Perry's stance on illegals. It's about the same as Sarah Palin's.
