Donald Trump has praised construction of newly constructed wall along the US-Mexico border, which the president has insisted “can’t be climbed”.
But a viral video has proved that the wall can easily be scaled with a ladder.
The video from by Deseret Sun photojournalist J Omar Ornelas shows a man bracing a tall ladder at the foot of the fence as two men climb to the top, then easily slide down the ladder rails from the other side of the perforated fence.
Video obtained by ProPublica shows the Border Patrol held a sick teen in a cell without proper medical attention and did not discover his body until his cellmate alerted guards.

Video showing a U.S. Border Patrol cell where a 16-year-old from Guatemala died of the flu shows the teen writhing, collapsing on the floor and being left there for hours alone before he was found dead.
The footage published Thursday by ProPublica calls into question the Border Patrol’s treatment of Carlos Hernandez Vasquez, who was found dead May 20.
According to ProPublica, Carlos staggered to the toilet in his cell in the middle of the night at the Border Patrol station in Weslaco, Texas, and collapsed nearby. He remained still for more than four hours until his cellmate awakened at 6:05 a.m. and discovered him on the floor.
US federal law enforcement agencies have arrested 90 more foreign students, mostly from India, taking the total number of students held so far to over 250 from a fake university set up by the authorities to check immigration fraud.
The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE in March arrested 161 students from the fake university established by it in the US state of Michigan.
SEATAC, Wash. – The King County sheriff said a violent robbery and sexual assault reported on October 19 at a restaurant in SeaTac was all a lie.
The elaborate hoax reported at Bob’s Burgers n’ Teriyakis was deliberately choreographed by several restaurant workers and customers, according to Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht.
“Patrons were allegedly tied up, robbed of jewelry and two female members were said to be sexually assaulted,” said Sheriff Johanknecht. “Today I can confirm to you, it was all a lie.”
Investigators believe the motive behind the hoax was to avoid deportation by obtaining a special U Visa, reserved for victims of substantial mental and physical abuse who help in detection, investigation or prosecution of a crime.
President Trump suggested shooting migrants in the legs to slow them down once they cross the southern border, according to a new book. The president reportedly made the suggestion in March during a meeting where he also called for the entire border with Mexico to be closed.
Immigration officials apprehended just over 64,000 migrants at the southern border in August – a dramatic drop that the Trump administration is presenting as a sign its diplomatic engagement with Mexico and other countries is having positive effects on the ground.
The 64,006 migrants apprehended or deemed inadmissible represents a 22 percent drop from July, when 82,055 were apprehended, and a 56 percent drop from the peak of the crisis in May when more than 144,000 migrants were caught or deemed inadmissible. While the numbers typically drop in the summer, the plummet is steeper than typical seasonal declines.Source: Border apprehensions plunge as Trump administration hails Mexico pact
