California Candidate Personally Patches Notorious Border Hole

Mexican immigrants in a line

A candidate for California’s Congress traveled to an infamous security lapse in the US-Mexico border and repaired it herself.

Kate Monroe, a Republican who is running for California’s 49th Congressional District, recently visited the “San Judas Break”, named for its proximity to the Mexican city of San Judas.

It has become a well-known hot spot for immigrants crossing the border illegally through a gap in the steel fencing where it meets a rock formation.

The gap easily allows a human to simply walk around the wall into the country.

During her visit, she saw that razor wire which had been placed there in an attempt to secure the gap had been torn down and thrown aside.

“I felt the anger and frustrations of millions of fellow Americans watching in horror as thousands of people poured through,” Monroe said, saying the large flaw in the border allows “terrorists, drugs, and human trafficking to infiltrate while local and national city economies bear the burden of supporting these migrants.”

“So I decided, if no one is going to do something about it, I will,” Monroe, who lives about 50 miles from the gap in her home district, said. “I purchased 400 feet of razor wire, and along with members of my staff, hung the wire along the gaps ourselves.”

She even claimed the Border Patrol in the area encouraged her efforts.

“I told CBP I was a Marine veteran running to be the next member of Congress in border district CA-49, and I said I knew their hands were tied, but mine weren’t,” Monroe said. “So they pointed me directly to the exact location. They aren’t allowed to secure the border but were happy I was there to do it. They said ‘you have our support.’”
Authorities in Mexico have also stepped up their efforts to secure the gap by setting up a new check point near the location to deter its use.
