In civilized countries, arrest can only occur when there is actual evidence of a crime. You cannot arrest someone for prior offenses. Also, the judiciary only convicts on actual commission of a crime, not priors.
Are you aware that arrests are made outside of a courtroom? If so, what does this have to do with my statement?
At the road crossing, there is no fence at all, just a number of closely spaced inspection booths between the laneways.
The official pedestrian crossing has a gateway that leads through an inspection station building.
You really think my statement about a wall included one blocking the highway?
All the rest of the border near San Ysidro is a double wall, one on the Mexican side, one on the US side, that stretches to the sea, to the west, and into the Otay Preserve to the East.
Check it out on Google Earth or Google maps.
I did, just to verify. I do that sometimes to not sound uninformed. You should try it.
There is one wall to the west and two walls to the east of the port of entry. All of them are on US soil or exactly on the border. There is no wall on Mexican soil. So, as I said, making an opening on the Mexican side makes an opening on the US side.
So, to sum up. Many Americans view Trump as a wannabe fledgling autocrat
