On Wednesday, Braulio Guerra, a congressman from Queretaro, climbed a 30-foot tall fence that separates the U.S. from Tijuana, tweeting photos and videos of himself atop the barrier later with a message to Trump.

 

 

"I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here," Guerra said in the video. "It would be simple for me to jump into the United States, which shows that it is unnecessary and totally absurd to build a wall."

He continued: "It's easy, and it shows how unnecessary this project, this political rhetoric from Donald Trump, is."

 

 

In one of the photos, two others are seen sitting at the top of the wall. According to Guerra, they, too, just happened to be going for a climb.

"You can climb it with great ease, one climbs in an instant," he said. "I climbed it in Tijuana, one of the highest parts, even from a distance this looks very complex, but there are young people that go up and down, at all times."
