Try reading the second paragraph:

"Flanked by Border Patrol officers, as well as Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of homeland security, and a cache of drugs, cash and weapons seized by the authorities at the border,..."

As a point of information...2018 data. These are apprehensions. What is the real number of successful entries? No one actually knows.

He's only concerned about a narrative that actually fits his worldview. The U.S. and Trump bad and evil about this issue.

Nonsense.

As soon as those weapons move into a jurisdiction with laws against them they disappear. Everyone knows that they will be illegal making them a non-issue.

Get with the program.

Notice the new term: unauthorized immigrant:
In Texas, he listened to tearful stories from people who described violent deaths of siblings and sons, including one woman whose son, a Border Patrol agent, had been killed by an unauthorized immigrant.

So, reading that article - when Trump says he's going to "Build a Wall", he means he's going to build a physical barrier of some kind ("If we had a barrier of any kind, whether it’s steel or concrete, ...") - not necessarily 1,000 miles of "wall", but probably a mixture of fence and wall depending on local conditions?

Is that everybody else's understanding?


Edit: Also, can anyone link me a summary of "the administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policies."?

I don't bother trying to understand it. The definition changes almost minute by minute. Length, cost, materials, all very much in flux. You have to ride it like a wave.

In campaign stop after campaign stop he usually said a very beautiful very tall concrete wall. Now who the eff knows. I think it is a white picket fence with some flowers and shrubs.

Here's a possible scenario:

Trump eventually gets his wall, then brags incessantly how much safer we are. Then the not-so-favorable statistics come out and Trump labels that fake news. Or, he claims he didn't get the wall he really wanted - it was just a compromise.
