Border Patrol Chief Shows Part of San Diego Border Knocked Down

President Trump spoke about immigration and the border wall in his 82-minute State of the Union speech on Tuesday, touching on San Diego's illegal border crossings.

"San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossing in our country, in response, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost ended all illegal crossings," Trump said.
