    EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security report says Trump administration has built just 20 miles

    EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security report says Trump administration has built just 20 miles of border wall and has funding plans for another 316 – despite White House claims that it's on track for 500 by next year


    • U.S. Customs and Border Protection report dated Monday shows that the Trump administration has only completed 20 miles of border wall in its first 28 months
    • CBP has a funding plan in place for 336 miles, including money from Congress, repurposed funds from Treasury Department forfeitures and a Pentagon project
    • Trump and press secretary Sarah Sanders both say they're on pace for 500 miles by 2020; Sanders claims between 100 and 115 miles are already built
    • A letter to a federal judge from the House of Representatives' top lawyer on Tuesday says last year's congressional appropriation bought just 1.7 miles
    • A large majority of the wall construction under contract from the Army Corps of Engineers is for replacements where barriers already existed
    • CBP says the money Congress gave the Obama administration for 2017 paid for 39.5 miles of wall; Trump became president in the middle of that fiscal year

    The Trump administration has completed just 20 miles of border wall construction after 28 months in office, according to a report from a Homeland Security Department agency.
    Although Donald Trump's chief spokeswoman says between 100 and 115 miles of the president's long-promised wall are finished and the total will grow to 500 next year, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection 'Border Wall Status' report dated May 20 is less optimistic.
    The report, obtained by DailyMail.com, suggests 336 miles of border barrier have been funded during Trump's presidency, and about 6 per cent of it is done so far.
    Overall, just 110 miles of walls reflected in CBP's report consist of 'new' barriers where the U.S.-Mexico border has previously been open to vehicle and foot traffic. The rest are 'updated' wall sections – barriers that are being either repaired or replaced.
    When a 'Fox & Friends' host asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Wednesday how much of the wall is finished, she replied: 'There's over 100 miles. I think it's close to 115 miles.'
