    Four more miles of border wall to be constructed in Rio Grande Valley in Texas

    Four more miles of border wall to be constructed in Rio Grande Valley in Texas

    A $33 million contract was awarded Wednesday, June 26, for about 4 miles of border wall construction in the Rio Grande Valley, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    Construction is expected to begin as early as November and will be built with vertical steel bollards, ranging from about 18-30 feet tall, the agency said. The contract was awarded by CBP and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to Southwest Valley Constructors..


    The latest construction is part of $2 billion expected to be spent by CBP this year to build about 85 miles of wall in the Rio Grande Valley. It includes 11 miles of new primary levee wall system and 74 miles of new border wall.


    About seven miles of new border wall are expected to go up in Starr County, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley with a little more than $75.8 million in contracts being announced by the CBP in the past couple of months.

    A $42.8 million contract was previously announced by CBP in late May for the construction of about three miles of wall beginning in August. Both contracts will be paid for through CBP's Fiscal 2019 budget.

    The latest four miles of wall construction will consist of four segments south of Rio Grande City and La Grulla, Texas. It will also include road construction, detection technology and light installation, CBP said.

    CBP had 654 miles of barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, including 300 miles of vehicle barriers that do not prevent people from crossing on foot, in January 2017, according to the agency.

    Since then, the Department of Homeland Security and CBP have received funding to construct about 201-205 miles of new barriers along the border, according to CBP. About 46.7 miles of additional border barriers have been built to replace dilapidated wall.


    The Rio Grande Valley is the busiest CBP sector in the nation, according to the statement, accounting for more than 40 percent of border apprehensions and a large percentage of narcotic seizures.


    "This project will improve the RGV Sector's ability to impede and deny illegal border crossings and the drug and human smuggling activities of transnational criminal organizations," CBP said in a statement.

    Federal Judge Blocks White House From Allocating Military Funds to Build a Border Wall

    by Cassandra Fairbanks June 28, 2019 493 Comments





    A federal judge has blocked President Donald Trump from allocating military funds to build a border wall.

    The permanent injunction was issued on Friday by US District Judge Haywood Gilliam in California.


    The judge had previously issued a temporary injunction after President Trump issued a national emergency and announced that he would use Defense Department funds to build the wall and secure the southern border of the US.
    Gilliam was nominated by Obama and confirmed in 2014. He donated to Obama’s campaign in 2008, sending $4,600 to Obama for America and $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund, according to federal election records. Additionally, “Gilliam donated additional funds to Obama’s re-election campaign, sending $13,500 to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012. He also donated $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee. From 2012 to November 2014, he sent $3,100 to the Covington and Burling LLP PAC,” according to a report from the Epoch Times.






















    According to a report from The Hill, “Gilliam, an Obama appointee, also issued a ruling in a separate case stopping the Trump administration from moving forward with border wall construction in New Mexico and California while that legal challenge plays out.”
    The White House had not yet responded to the news on Friday evening.

    It is the Commander-in-Chief's DUTY to protect this country from any and ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic, and TRUMP is negligent in those duties by not building that entire wall, shutting that border down immediately, and deporting every illegal alien and UAC on the spot!

    This is a bought and paid for, pre-meditated, deliberate, invasion of our country by Soros, Rothschild, U.N., NWO, foreign governments, cartels, gang members and FOREIGN citizens who have NO RIGHT to step foot on our soil.

    These overbreeding, uneducated, pregnant, violent, criminal, disease infected parasites are coming here for jobs and FREE stuff.

    Shut down that Asylum, Refugee, TPS, illegal aliens programs and stop funding this rape and pillage of the American taxpayers by foreigners!

    SHUT IT DOWN NOW. DEPORT EVERY DAMN PARASITE IN THOSE HOLDING FACILITIES AND STOP THIS MADNESS!!!

    AMERICAN'S ARE DYING AT THE HANDS OF THESE ILLEGALS, THEY ARE BRINGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES, MEDICAL PROBLEMS, PREGNANCIES AND ARE BANKRUPTING US!!!

    THIS IS OUTRAGES!!!!

    NO ASYLUM
    NO REFUGEES
    NO TPS
    NO ILLEGAL ALIENS
    NO ANCHOR BABY
    NO MORE MONEY!!!

    CATCH AND DEPORT ON THE SPOT!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in partnership with the Army Corps of Engineers, announced a new panel installation on an 11-mile section of wall within the Border Patrol's San Diego sector on Thursday.
