Trump Administration Planning to Build 450 Miles of Border Wall by 2020

Professor says ‘contractors are building pretty fast’.

By Jack Phillips – September 12, 2019
Construction started along the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona as a small crew works to put up a towering, 30-foot-tall border wall, according to The Associated Press.
The construction started just south of Yuma, and the Trump administration is still planning to complete 450 miles by the end of 2020.

President Donald Trump and his administration said they are planning to build between 450 and 500 miles of wall along the 2,000-mile border in that time frame.

Two other Department of Defense-funded construction projects in New Mexico and Arizona are now underway, AP reported, which noted that there have been “last-minute construction hiccups” as well as legal challenges and funding problems.

Border Patrol said that the Yuma sector is the third-busiest along the southern border.

“Historically this has been a huge crossing point for both vehicles as well as family units and unaccompanied alien children during the crisis that we’ve seen in the past couple of months,” Border Patrol spokesman Jose Garibay told the news agency. “They’ve just been pouring over the border due to the fact that we’ve only ever had vehicle bollards and barriers that by design only stop vehicles.”

  1. The New World Order, one world government globalists (which G.H.W. Bush favored) has deemed that we have no right to protect ourselves or our country. No guns, no walls, no discussion, just do what they say. I don’t see what is taking folks so long to build a 30′ high wall along the entire southern border. It should be easier than putting a man on the moon.
    The wall will make it sooo much easier to monitor and control what’s coming into our country (transporting women and children for slavery, bringing in illegal drugs to poison us, sneaking in violent criminals, underpaid labor, flooding our health and welfare programs with illegal dependents, etc. Too many policy makers, politicians, and employers want the border to stay open.
