SAN DIEGO — "Smuggling gangs in Mexico have repeatedly sawed through new sections of President Donald Trump's border wall in recent months by using commercially available power tools, opening gaps large enough for people and drug loads to pass through, according to U.S. agents and officials with knowledge of the damage.

After cutting through the base of a single bollard, smugglers can push the steel out of the way, allowing an adult to fit through the gap. Because the bollards are so tall - and are attached only to a panel at the very top - their length makes them easier to push aside once they have been cut and are left dangling, according to engineers consulted by The Washington Post."
