Mexicans have largely reacted with outrage to the proposed border wall President Donald Trump has vowed to erect between the two countries. One Mexican Congressman, however, decided to air his objections in a very, very public way.

Braulio Guerra, representing the state of Queretaro, tweeted images and posted a video of his visit to the current border between Tijuana and California. Not content to simply visit, Guerra scaled the imposing barrier to draw attention to what he said was the uselessness of walls.

“I was able to scale it, climb it, and sit myself right here,” Guerra said in the video, ABC News reported. “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.”

Unknown, at this time, is how Guerra actually managed to get up there.
