Mexican Lawmaker Climbs Border Fence to Show That a Wall is ‘Absurd’

Mexican congressman Braulio Guerra, who represents the state of Queretaro, tweeted photos and a video of himself on top of a 30-foot tall fence on the U.S.-Mexican border to demonstrate that a border wall is “totally absurd.” He said in the video: “I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here. It would be simple for me to jump into the United States, which shows that it is unnecessary and totally absurd to build a wall.” He added, “It’s easy, and it shows how unnecessary this project, this political rhetoric from Donald Trump, is.”
