“This wall works,” Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said in an interview along the U.S.-Mexico border wall. “I say all the time and I really mean it. I’ve been doing this job for 28 years.”

He added, “There’s no other single investment that we can make that lasts this long and has an immediate return on investment.”

“I like to highlight, for example, San Diego,” he said. “When we built out this system and proved that it worked, it freed up 150 agents every 24 hours to be shifted into other areas.”

Scott added, “Every mile of wall we build allows one single agent to cover more border area. That’s a return on the taxpayers’ investment every single day.”
