Wind blows the border fence in Mexicali!



This afternoon the Santa Ana winds blew down part of the border wall being built between Mexicali and Calexico.



The sections of the new border fence (also known as the "Trump Wall") are being placed there.

There were 15 of these sections that were knocked down by the wind and fell on Cristobal Colon Street on the Mexican side.

No injuries were reported.

The journalists who reported live from the site, mention that there was also no illegal entry into the United States taking advantage of the spaces that were opened.

Border Patrol agents kept watch to prevent major incidents.

  1. He builds the best walls but sometimes miscalculates the effects of wind, it's often the negative pressure on the leeward side that is fatally ignored. When asked Trump said, "Wind?

    1. Obviously you missed the fact that the sections are set in an open trench and the wall sections are not yet cemented in so, there was nothing anchoring them down solid.

    2. Much like Trump's so-called "presidency". What a perfect metaphor; he can't even get his monument to hate right.

      Sure hope no one got cancer from that wind.

    4. The section were set in concrete which had not been cured. High winds are not unusual in this area nor any part of the desert. The sections should have been braced to prevent this.

  2. Anyone watching this can clearly see that those sections were under construction and had not yet been installed. Any fake news for an anti-Trump headline. Unreal

    1. Exactly! The sections are sitting in an open trench that haven't yet been cemented in.

    2. Obviously you missed the fact that properly planned structures are securely anchored during construction. A person has built buildings before, like Trump should know that or know to hire people that do.
      Properly engineered, and shall we say, well thought out vertical construction, includes specifically designing and building to compensate for a "wind load factor" in excess of standard conditions plus the weight of the structure itself when subjected to such loads.
      In other words, extreme conditions, soil types, etc. are factored into the specifying an adequate footing, and other structural elements to avoid such failures.
      But like I said, that's in well thought out projects. Which precludes any idea of even building the wall in the first place.

    3. Do you Trumpkins never get tired if oukingnup the same tired phrases, over and over? It's almost like you are stupid and incapable of original thought.

    4. So I just want to ask, if it is "fake news" are you saying the wall didn't fall over? I know, don't believe your eyes and ears, only believe what the Traitor in Chief tells you to believe. He says it is perfect, right?

      As a side note, this is what happens when you skip proper architecture, skip all that "evil" regulation that ensures properly designed and built things. Now we deregulate our drinking water and let whoever dump whatever in it. As if it isn't bad enough already.

      Just wanting to point a few things out "for a friend".

    5. and I was going to comment on the "unknown" post, but then I look at mine and it's listed as unknown too even though I am logged in. Me thinks there is a problem with the web site.

  3. No one, absolutely no one leaves unsecured construction elements of any "in an open trench" without any kind of support prior to completing the project.
    Saying that is what is showing in the pictures (unsecured elements) is the only thing fake .
