Video Shows Newly Built Border Fence Being Scaled in Mexicali

A video taken by a Mexican citizen shows the newly replaced border fence in Mexicali being scaled by two men with a ladder, one of whom makes it over to the United States.

The 38-second video shows two men climbing the ladder while another holds it on the Mexico side of the border. After one man successfully slides down the railing to the U.S. side and starts running toward a second structure, another begins yelling in Spanish, “Hurry, hurry, jump the fence.”

A vehicle that appears to belong to U.S. Border Patrol then pulls up and officials emerge, prompting the other men to gather the ladder and slide back down the fence into Mexico.
