    Walls DO work! Man breaks both legs trying to entering country illegally

    A man attempting to enter the United States illegally was severely injured on Sunday evening after he fell from a 30-foot border wall located near Calexico, California.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the incident Monday, saying the man fractured both legs and possibly injured his back.
    After border patrol agents found the injured man, paramedics and fire department personnel were sent to the scene, CBP said. The man was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Palm Springs.
    Security footage of the incident posted to Twitter by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows a figure falling from the wall and remaining motionless after impact.
    The man was not identified by CBP in the release.
    The U.S. government usually pays medical bills for people injured crossing the border illegally, before deporting them after they recover, said Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Pitones.

    The Left likes to say border walls are useless but it sure didn’t look that way in the video

    Hey, it says the guy is in Palm Springs. Therefore the wall didn't work. What's up with that?

    Great, probably sue the government and win due to a liberal judge, become a millionaire. If not, he will get disability for the rest of his life.

    They should send him straight back to wherever he came from, give him some aspirin and ship his ass out.

    Broke both legs, that's cruel! We need to mount machine guns to shoot them on the way down so they don't have to suffer.

    Now he'll get the finest health care available and probably kudos from Gov. Moonbeam.

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Catapult him back over the wall as soon as he is found on our side.

    I suppose, for his trouble and, pain and suffering, all he endured trying for, ' a better life,' he'll be granted legal status. That's how it works, right?

    Since he's a citizen of Mexico, or, wherever, he should have been tossed back across the wall.

    Mexico doesn't treat our citizens with the same courtesy, they sure as hell don't foot the bills for medical care, if American citizens are injured in their country.

    I say, treat their citizens the same way.

    Right along with every possible benefit our own legal citizens aren't affored e.g. homeless veterans et al

    James 1:19 says, "Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." Being “slow to speak” is the exact opposite to speaking pressingly or with urgency. Practically speaking I believe its all about getting into the habit. Wait before you speak and consider the effects of what you are going to say. Then, if you don’t have anything to say that is constructive or edifying, don’t say anything at all!
