Border Security In For A Boost As Trump Wall Construction Begins.
Once again despite the Liberal naysayers and critics, Trump is proving to be a man of his word. Trump os getting the Wall built. This past Friday construction began on the San Diego section of the Trump Wall.
“Roughly 14 miles of the eight-to-10-foot-high barrier made out of scrap metal will be replaced with a “bq1ollard-style wall” more than twice as tall, a CBP news release said.”
The new wall has an added feature to deter attempts, an anti-climbing plate.
“Administration officials describe each of these new barriers as part of President Donald Trump’s promised “border wall.”
“Under this President’s leadership, we have a renewed commitment to secure our border,” said Ronald Vitiello, CBP’s Acting Deputy Commissioner. “The new primary wall-project represents an important milestone in our work to secure the international border. Not only does it significantly upgrade our existing infrastructure in San Diego, it also marks the third concurrent wall project in the U.S. and reflects CBP’s unwavering commitment to secure our borders and protect our nation.”
The San Diego Border is currently the main focal point as it has a heavy foot traffic.
“Agents along San Diego’s 60-mile border apprehended 26,086 illegal crossings in fiscal year 2017, CBP said, and seized 10,985 pounds of marijuana, 2,903 pounds of cocaine, 4,123 pounds of methamphetamine and 5,707 ounces of heroin.
“Although the existing wall was proven effective, the cross border threat has increased and the several decades of old corrugated steel landing mat is in need of replacement with a higher performing design,” CBP said in a statement announcing the new construction.”

“Work is being done by SLSCO, a Texas-based construction company, at a cost of $147 million.”
“Two other border projects in progress included two miles of wall in Calexico, Calif., and 20 miles of border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mex.”
