Former Drug Czar Says Wall Will Work

Former Drug Czar Says Wall Will Work

Lately, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and various left-wing pundits have been on the stump decrying how President Trump’s proposed border wall will do nothing to stop the influx of drugs.

Such claims are “absurd” according to John Walters, who served as the “Drug Czar” under former President George W. Bush. Walters made his comments on a recent broadcast of Fox & Friends, adding that he thought it’s a “stupid analysis” to claim drugs will enter the country through legal ports even if a border wall is constructed. He seemed to indicate that just the opposite would be true.

“The problem is we have 2,000 miles of the border, and we have too many people on guard duty and not enough people screening at the points of entry…”

Walters explained that creating a wall like the one President Trump has proposed would channel the flow of drugs at the border into fixed areas so that agents could screen and stop them.

Politically Inspired Stupidity

Walters continued, “It’s kind of silly, I guess it’s politically inspired stupidity, but it’s ludicrous to say that the wall won’t allow us to focus our manpower on the places where we can control and search.”

He said that in addition to the wall, funds for border security should be used to step up drug screening at ports of entry, adding that there are laws that allow agents to stop vehicles after the port.

Walters also criticized what he called a “big stupid lie” by political leaders who claim there is not a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

He said that politics have now overtaken the responsibilities of political leaders when it comes to the border.

“When political leaders say this is a manufactured crisis, that is infuriating to families and communities that are being destroyed [by illicit drugs crossing the border],” he said.

    Perhaps since you seem to know so much why don’t you go check the borders yourself so that you are not embellishing stories that you have no idea is true or false. Perhaps then we can get a viable opinion with some verified data as to what will or won’t work.

      Rather an absurd comment above by someone who doesn’t even claim to know anything and certainly proves it. Common sense says exactly what the author was saying. By the way, just what part of 2000 miles of border did you think should be checked?

      What’s your opinion???……that a 3,000 strong ‘caravan’ of people crossing our borders (and not at designated points of entry) is not a crisis, an emergency that needs to be addressed by Congress? This is a serious problem that’s been going on for decades with no one putting a check on it…….at a totally immeasurable cost to the US taxpayer.
      Wake up, smell the coffee and get over the 2016 election.

      This is going to be solved by people talking to each other, listening to other’s points of view, and coming up with a comprehensive solution. It is not going to be solved by the Prrsident bullying Congress and the American people trying to get us to back his solution thst has not been tested or debated

    Most of us didn’t need a drug czar to tell us that the wall will work!

    I lived in El Paso, Texas for several years. The Wall of Trump will do nothing to stop the flow of drugs, stop criminals, etc. I bet Mr. Walters has never been to any place on the USA/Mexico Border. He is another “15 minute know it all”!

    Why don’t they visit the border and
    see for themselves instead of planning trips to other countries?
    Where there is smoke, there is fire, as the saying goes. Stop playing games with the American people. Do what is necessary for
    the people who vote for them.

    “When political leaders say this is a manufactured crisis, that is infuriating to families and communities that are being destroyed (by illicit drugs crossing the border),” he said. If you don’t understand that EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN TAXPAYER IS AFFECTED IN SOME WAY by this ‘illegal migration’ into our country. there’s something inherently wrong with you.

    The Dems want to tighten up ay ports of entry. Will the cartels say “Oh no, I can’t get drugs into the US anymore”? Or will they just run them over weaker parts of the border? What happened to logic?

    Over a thousand miles of this border is in very remote areas of mountains and with the Rio Grande River running right down the middle of the border. What part of building a wall do the people proposing it understand? Walls in such remote areas are impossible to build, maintain and keep secure. The damage to the environment would be severe too. No engineer has been employed to design and price it out either. It won’t work!

    The damn wall is a waste of money and has never been proven where it already exists.
