Illegal immigration in one area of Texas has dropped more than 80 percent thanks to the new border wall system that includes multiple layers of fencing, roads, lights, and extra personnel, the acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan told Congress on Thursday.

Speaking at the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee on the Fiscal Year 2021 budget, Morgan said, “We’ve seen apprehensions and illegal entries and gotaways all being reduced by over 80% in that 20-mile stretch,” referring to a portion of the wall near El Paso, Texas.

Morgan raised the claim in his reply to Rep. Kay Granger’s question about the effectiveness of the wall. Watch their exchange in the video below at approximately 36:10:
