Reporter Who Confronted Trump Witnesses Several People Run Across Border, Acknowledges Border Is "Porous"

|

Jose Diaz-Balart, the reporter who tried to take on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at a Thursday press conference in Laredo, Texas, acknowledged the "porous" U.S.-Mexico border in a live shot from the Texas border town on Friday.

"While we've been here in the morning, we saw two people cross the border through the river into Laredo," Diaz-Balart reported. "They were tackled by officials right here. So there is a porous border. Congressman, what can and should be done to control this country's borders?"

DIAZ-BALART: He wouldn't answer what the great danger is [about the border]. I don't know. Is the great danger the fact that Laredo is a city that is 95%-plus Latino. Is it that I was trying to ask him a question. Are those the dangers that he fears? Because one in Laredo finds a very safe environment.

However, Congressman, while we've been here in the morning, we saw two people cross the border through the river into Laredo. They were tackled by officials right here. So there is a porous border. Congressman, what can and should be done to control this country's borders?
