Mexican Congressman Climbs US-Mexico Border to Show Trump His Wall Is "Absurd"


Struggling to convince people of the estupidez that is Trump’s Wall?

One Mexican congressman decided to tackle the problem by literally getting o top of it. Braulio Guerra climbed the border wall between Tijuana and Southern California in order to show President Donald Trump how ”unnecessary" and "absurd” his “great” wall actually is.

Last wednesday Guerra, who represents the state of Querétaro where he serves as a member of the Chamber of Deputies, climbed the 30-foot tall fence that serves as part of the existing border between Mexico and the US.

Straddling the barrier, the congressman tweeted photos and videos of himself with a direct message to Trump.

"I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here," Guerra told the camera ”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."

The congressman continues, taking specific jabs and trumps behavior, ”It's easy, and it shows how unnecessary this project, this political rhetoric from Donald Trump, is."

Guerra invoked JFK saying, “John F. Kennedy, in his time spoke about an alliance towards progress, that the United states would turn around towards Mexico and Latin American and cooperate with them towards their development, their economy, their employment, level their standards of living, and be good neighbors. Mutual assistance is how we improve the relationship and stop the migratory flow.”

And it doesn’t stop there. In one of the photos, you can see two more people casually sitting on top of the wall. And unlike Guerra, they weren’t there trying to prove a point.

"You can climb it with great ease, one climbs in an instant," he said. "I climbed it in Tijuana, one of the highest parts, even from a distance this looks very complex, but there are young people that go up and down, at all times."
