What Separates Violence From Nonviolence?

What keeps the violence of Juarez out of El Paso is — you guessed it — a wall.

El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, are neighboring cities separated only by a border wall. Juarez is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. El Paso has a low crime rate. The only thing separating the violence from the nonviolence is a border wall.

Now Texas congresswoman Veronica Escobar, who replaced Beto O'Rourke, thinks that wall should come down. “We know that walls don’t work, that they don’t stop drugs, that they don’t stop migration.” But when asked if she would tear down that wall, she responded, “You know I, I, it’s, it’s really ugly. It, it, it is I think a monument to division.”

Yeah, division between violence and non-violence.

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan, who we quoted last week as supporting the wall, lives in El Paso. “I see a lot of the pundits talking and they have never been to the border, and they never talk to the experts, and they’re absolutely dismissing the facts,” said Morgan.

“Wall work,” he asserts. “If you saw the previous caravans, what stopped them? What stopped them was a multi-layered strategy that the Border Patrol has been using for decades, and they say they need now. And that’s that trifecta of infrastructure, technology, and personnel.”
