Video: Let's walk through the hole in the border fence

Brandon Darby of went down to Texas to find out how hard it would be to get past what John McCain once tenderly referred to as “the goddamned fence.” Answer: Pretty hard — except for the giant gaps with no gates that you could drive a truck through.

In those places, it’s pretty easy.

My favorite part is when he comes to the gate in the road and casually steps around it. It’s a comfort to know that you can’t drive across the river when the water’s low and head straight on up through the fence hole. You have to get out and actually walk the last 100 yards or so. That’s what “earned amnesty” means, I guess.
