    New Mexico Completes More Than Half Of Its Border Wall Section

    New Mexico Completes More Than Half Of Its Border Wall Section

    New Mexico completes construction of more than half of its barrier-wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    U.S. Customs and Border Control confirmed this week more than 11 miles of wall west of Santa Teresa has been built since the beginning of August.

    Officials touted support for the steel wall, saying the completed 20-mile structure will be more difficult to cross.

    Environmentalists are suing over the project, claiming it interferes with wildlife.

    The $73 million New Mexico project, which began earlier this year, is part of President Trumpís initiative to crackdown on illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

    These are the same "environmentalists that have no problem with the ton of garbage left on the border by illegals. The only wildlife that is definitely affected are the wild Mexican cartel traffickers and drug mules. IMO

    Trump’s New Border ‘Wall’ Resembles Fence Obama Constructed That Illegal Aliens Recently Hopped Over

    A new fencing project underway by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the United States-Mexico border is being touted by President Trump’s administration as his border “wall.”

    The barrier going up in the Santa Teresa, New Mexico, is similar to that of the fencing that was constructed in Sunland Park, New Mexico, under former President Obama. The slight difference between the two fences? Height.

    A DHS official told Breitbart News that the Santa Teresa border fence, to be constructed this year, will stand 30 feet tall. In some areas, though, the border fence will range between 18 feet to 30 feet tall.

    Meanwhile, the Sunland Park border fence project—which started under Obama and was completed under Trump—stands at about 20 feet tall, but is, for the most part, the same type of bollard-style fence.

    Here are photos of Trump’s new border fence set to go up in Santa Teresa, New Mexico:

    A portion of the new steel border fence stretches along the US-Mexico border in Sunland Park, New Mexico, Thursday, March 30, 2017. This fencing just west of the New Mexico state line was planned and started before President Donald Trump’s election, adding to the 650 miles of fences, walls and vehicle barriers that already exist along the nearly 2,000-mile frontier. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)

    In 2013, Breitbart News noted how the only border fence in Sunland Park was a chain link fence. That fence was replaced by the Obama administration, which began building the bollard style fence in the last year of his presidency. The project was ultimately finished in mid-2017 under Trump.

    Most recently, illegal aliens were photographed jumping over a portion of the Sunland Park border fence, crossing onto American soil. The photographs, as Breitbart News reported, went viral online.

    Here, illegal aliens can be seen crossing the bollard border fence just last week:

The anti-immigration president said the National Guard deployment would range from 2,000 to 4,000 troops, and he would “probably” keep many personnel on the border until his wall is built — spelling out a lengthy mission.

    The Trump administration has made headway with building new border fences without the help of the Republican-controlled Congress. For example, DHS is underway with a project in Calexico, California, building new bollard fencing in the region to stop illegal immigration.

    Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled Congress has stood with Democrats in the way of Trump’s vision for a larger border wall project made from highly effective wall prototypes that he visited last month.

    The recent spending bill that congressional Republicans and Democrats sent to Trump, and he signed, actually bars the administration from building a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico using the prototype walls, Breitbart News reported.

    Instead, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Republican leadership tied the Trump administration’s hands on the border, leaving them forced to construct only about 33 new miles of border fence using fencing that has been used by DHS in the past, like the bollard style fencing being erected in New Mexico.
    While dealing with an uncooperative Republican leadership, the Trump administration has seen border-crossings tick back up to Obama era levels.

    Last month, the Trump administration saw a more than 200 percent increase in illegal immigration when comparing March 2017 to March 2018. Trump was warned this month by allies that his base of supporters is increasingly fed up with a lack progress on ending illegal immigration.

    Taking matters into his own hands, Trump has called for 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard troops to be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to shore up Border Patrol agents so that illegal aliens can be more effectively arrested, detained, and deported.

    and it is only 11 miles---at this rate it would take 40 years just to build 1000 miles, and this is fence.

    Fence very similar to what the illegals climb and sit on top and wave their flag and laugh at us.

    Build the wall and let them spend years in court trying to get it torn down rather than delaying the building of the wall until after years of litigation.

    Even a wire marking the border is something. It lets people know where the boundary is. A ten foot wall is an even greater impedance than a wire. Of course the higher the security, the higher the cost. Then the decision is high security of a limited area versus moderate security over a long area.

    The fence depicted prevents vehicles from crossing which certainly slows down the transportation of drugs or people.

    President Trump has to deal with Congress. He failed to stand his ground which was a failure on his part. But anything seems to be better than nothing. He can't authorize funding for a wall he wants. He has to play politics doing what is within his power. He can put troops on the border and hope the cost and publicity will force Congress to fund a physical wall. He could order moratoriums on immigration to get funding for a wall. But as you know, left wing judges, (even right wing judges) block his attempts causing delays and huge amounts of money in addition to political fodder.

    So it is not a simple matter, as you frame it, that a dictator could remedy.

    I will take whatever fence or wall we can get. Most of the fencing is a JOKE and falling down.

    If it keeps the children and pregnant ones out...it paid for itself!

    KEEP THEM ALL OUT!

    These environmentalists are FULL of it. These parasites have dumped tons and tons of garbage on our border! It is trashed. They are doing MORE damage than any wall could do.
