Construction Started on the US-Mexico border wall in San Diego County on Friday.
Now, it’s being reported that President Donald Trump has included a special new”feature” on his long-promised border wall that will prevent illegal immigrants in his or her tracks. You are going to love this!
President Donald Trump promised that the American people that he would work diligently to repair our broken immigration system, and he is currently delivering on that vow.
During his campaign for the White House and in rallies after he won the presidency, Trump touted the massive boundary wall he would build between the U.S. and Mexico. Well, on Friday, construction began in Southern California.
True to his word, President Trump is building the best boundary wall American patriots could have hoped for, complete with a special new feature sure to prevent illegal immigrants in their tracks: an anti-climbing plate.
Construction started Friday about the US-Mexico boundary wall project at Border Field State Park, the next job in San Diego County. The job will replace roughly 14 kilometers of scrap metal wall which stands around 10 ft high with a wall between 18 and 30 feet tall.
Crews will build the wall starting half a mile from the Pacific Ocean, east into the bottom of Otay Mountain in East County. Work has been achieved by SLSCO, a Texas-based construction firm, at a cost of $147 million.
While the CBP said the existing wall was powerful, it had been erected in the 1990s from Vietnam-era scrap metal and needed replacing to cope with what the CBP called an increased cross-border threat. [Resource: FOX4]
“The construction of the new large wall will improve overall border safety, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the general public, and will enhance the atmosphere for business and trade in the area,” explained Rodney Scott, the Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector.
“Under this president’s direction, we have a renewed commitment to secure our edge,” added Ronald Vitiello, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Acting Deputy Commissioner. “The new main wall-project represents a significant milestone in our job to guarantee the international border.”
“Does it substantially upgrade our existing infrastructure at 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,” Vitiello concluded. Two other boundary projects in progress comprised two kilometers of wall in Calexico, California, and 20 miles of border wall in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.
President Donald Trump visited San Diego, California, in March so as to review eight enormous prototypes for the wall. While he was there, his dialog with a Border Patrol Agent was caught on camera, revealing what the current wall is made from. President Trump was noticeably stunned when he discovered the facts.
An unidentified agent told the president that guards in his place had built a wall out of scrap metal, having no additional substances to use, and even this makeshift barrier was 95% effective. “There was effectively no border in San Diego. It was a chaotic situation,” the agent told Trump. “We put it in place just to delineate where the border was. And it changed our environment.”
There can be no doubt that President Trump’s border wall will be successful — if scrap metal can keep so many undocumented immigrants at bay, the impenetrable barrier Trump’s team is working on could address our immigration issues almost entirely.
