Officials confirmed that the new primary border barrier worked by giving agents time to respond to the illegal border crossing attempt.
Two illegal immigrants have been arrested after they unsuccessfully tried to climb over a newly installed section of a border wall in California.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they caught the two men trying to illegally cross over into San Diego from Mexico.
Surveillance footage taken from the border showed the men trying and failing to scale the border wall.
The two men could then be seen trying to flee back towards Mexico but were forced to hide when border agents responded to the scene.
