Stalled BORDER WALL Construction has RESTARTED!
I am so happy that we are finally securing our border. Just a week ago, Border Patrol seized nearly 12.7 million dollars worth of METH (about 900 or so lbs) at the border which is just an inkling of what kind of drug busts are taking place.
And not only that, but more recently, Mexican officials detected and apprehended 25 MS-13 gang members in the migrant caravan in Mexico. Finally Mexico is doing something about the problem.
It’s not the same as writing a check for the wall though.
SAN DIEGO (AP) – Construction has begun on the fifth border wall project of Donald Trump’s presidency, replacing up to 14 miles of barrier in San Diego, authorities said Tuesday.
The first panels are in place to replace a steel-mesh fence with 30-foot-high steel bollards, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. SLSCO Ltd. of Galveston, Texas, was awarded a $101 million contract in December, with options for an additional $30 million.
The bollards replace a second layer of barrier that worked like a fortress when it was built about a decade ago but is now often breached with powerful battery-operated saws sold in home improvement stores.
