A Mexican congressman decided to make a point about President Donald Trump's border wall plan by scaling a 30-foot tall fence that separates Tijuana from the United States.

On Wednesday, Braulio Guerra climbed the wall to show others how easy it is to enter the U.S., even with a new wall. Guerra, a congressman from the state of Queretaro, said Trump's planned wall is "unnecessary" and "absurd."

During his address to Congress earlier this week, Trump promised his administration would restore "integrity and the rule of law to our borders."

"We will soon begin the construction of a great, great wall along our southern border," Trump said Tuesday.

Trump has previously said that Mexico would pay the cost of the wall construction.
