I recently saw an interview with Bernie Sanders saying that there is no wall being built. He said they’ve not put up any wall at all.
Now we can definitely prove Bernie is a big fat liar…which we already knew.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection just released some drone footage of approximately 60 miles of new border wall
Fox News reported, Elsewhere in Arizona, crews were installing 30-foot steel fencing Friday to replace older barriers next to a border crossing known as Lukeville Port of Entry, which is part of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
Many Arizona residents use the crossing on their way to Rocky Point, a beach destination in Mexico.
Construction is expected to take about 45 days. The U.S. government then plans to tackle other projects in Arizona, including nearly 40 miles of fencing in other parts of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and areas of Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.
Workers also broke ground Friday for construction between Columbus and Santa Teresa — small towns near ports of entry along the border between New Mexico and the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.
Currently, the southern border has 654 miles of barriers of some sort, but this only accounts for approximately one-third of the southern border. Much more is needed to complete the project, but there has been a lot of progress made already.
I know that the Department of Transportation can’t even move this fast. It would take them years to pour 60 miles of road at the rate that they work.
Douglas Nicholls, the mayor of Yuma, wrote, “It is something that we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both. We are looking for a FEMA-type response. This is not a natural disaster, but it is a disaster either way. Their resources could come in and take care of the situation. This has moved faster than I believe anyone had predicted. The solution rests at the federal level.”
Illegal border crossings in San Luis, AZ, in 2005 versus the same location today: In 2005, 10’ landing mat failed to impede and deny illegal entries. Today, CBP has a triple layered enforcement zone which includes an 18’ bollard wall. pic.twitter.com/DSO5p0h75M
