According to the New York Post, Border Patrol personnel accepted responsibility for the choice to weld open floodgates in border wall sections close to Lukeville, Arizona.
The border wall’s open gates enable people to effortlessly cross it and enter the Arizona desert.
The agency apparently tried to place the burden for allowing thousands of migrants to freely enter what is now the busiest border region in the country on actions by other federal authorities before making the admission.
The southern border is now "welded open". As far as I can see, there is no legal or moral obligation to obey or support any government that does this. pic.twitter.com/odvgCV7dg8

Regarding migrant arrests in July, the Tucson Sector took the lead nationally. Nearly 40,000 migrants were apprehended, an increase of around 136% from July 2022.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data, the sector is in second place in year-to-date apprehensions after arresting roughly 274,000 migrants – an increase of 59 percent over the previous year.
“We thought the agents were going to say something to us,” an Ecuadorian migrant told the Post. “But we just got in.”
A Cuban migrant added, “It was so easy to get into the United States. Nothing like our trip through Mexico. That part was difficult. I thought there was going to be more security.”
The gates were incorporated into the border wall’s design to allow migratory animals and flooding during the monsoon season.
According to CBP authorities, “high water flow combined with excessive sediment and debris buildup can stress or comprise the design integrity of the barrier.”
According to National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, the intelligence network of the Mexican cartel that traffics in human smuggling swiftly finds these holes in the wall and takes advantage of them.
Judd said, “Since the cartels are continuously watching everything we do, the minute something is left exposed, it is exploited.
It exploded instantly in this case, demonstrating how skilled the criminal cartels are at taking advantage of any vulnerability once we disclose it to them.
The gates, according to Judd, “should never open up.”
Multiple images of the welded-open gates with migrants freely passing through may be found in the New York Post article.
In one photo, the gate is shown with a steel spike welded to keep it open.
Tucson Sector agents detained 821 migrants every day on average in June. This number rose to about 1,200 migrants per day in July.
Thousands of migrants are crossing into the US through the US-Mexico border in Arizona through open floodgates that were welded open.
