The chief of Border Patrol under President Obama said President Donald Trump’s wall on the southern border would be effective.

Former Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, “Yes. [walls] absolutely work. If you look in the past, you don’t have to go too far back in history, that bipartisan legislation Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012, bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier, whatever you want to call it, it’s a wall. It works.”

Morgan told Carlson that he was removed from his position once the Trump administration transitioned to power, and yet he still supported the President’s agenda for the border wall.

“The president is right, the president of [National] Border Patrol Council is right,” he said. “The other day when they had the national press conference and they got up and they said, ‘The wall wor,’ they are right, and it’s not based on a personal, political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”
