U.S. Customs and Border Protection has released drone footage showing miles and miles of new border wall going up in southwest Arizona, as the projects funded by money President Trump reallocated from the Defense Department via executive order earlier this year continue making the United States safer and more secure.
The construction is taking place at a previous “problem area” near the San Luis Port of Entry, which is just south of Yuma, with the help of the Army Corps of Engineers.
“CBP has constructed over 60 miles of new border wall system along the SW border since 2017 and expects to complete 450 miles by the end of 2020,” the agency tweeted.
The agency also included video demonstrating how system the new wall is replacing totally failed to stop illegal entries.
“Today, CBP has a triple layered enforcement zone which includes an 18’ bollard wall,” CBP wrote.
