Huge Wall Construction Update

Donald Trump’s wall projects has made good progress in New Mexico. The Daily Caller reports:

New Mexico is progressing on its 20-mile border wall construction west of Santa Teresa, replacing old posts and rail barriers as part of President Donald Trump’s initiative to halt illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said more than 8,100 panels stretching over 11 miles were built as of Aug. 8, according to the Associated Press Friday.

“It’s going to be harder to get over, harder to get through, harder to get underneath,” Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull of the El Paso sector told the Albuquerque Journal on April 9. “It’s going to have a five-foot, anti-scaling plate at the top.”

The barrier will be as tall as 18 feet in some areas, depending on the location. The “wall of steel” was approved in 2017 and construction of the $73.3 million project began April 9, the Journal reported.

While the wall construction has taken longer than most supporters would have wanted, it is still progressing.

New Mexico is smart to build THE WALL. This will cut down on illegals, drugs, weapons and other illegal activity. Now for the other states along the border to do the same.

It’s great that New Mexico is building the wall between USA and Mexico….but they also may have to go in with Arizona to build a wall between AZ and California to keep all of the illegals from coming through California !

Thee illegal invaders won’t leave California. Why that is the “land of milk and honey” Remember, the get welfare for themselves and all of their million kids, housing provided, medical provided, schooling provided, probably transportation, they have no or little cost of living because the taxpayers are milked by the politicians for it, any work they do is “under the table” (don’t want to make enough money to lose all those benefits , now), and in California, they can commit as much crime as they like and they are protected from the feds and from deportation. Many of their crimes are “exempt” locally so that they don’t end up being reported to the feds. They are invited to vote, drive a car with or without a license, no insurance, of course – the citizens can just pay for “uninsured motorists” insurance instead, and last but not least, they don’t even have to put forth any effort to learn the language of the country they have invaded – we’re supposed to learn theirs – or “press 1 for English”! Personally, I would love to blow them all to H***! Sometimes, they make me understand the beliefs of the Iraqis when we invaded them in the early 2000’s and the reason they “invented” IEDs!

Go Fund Me is a very very very liberal organization. They would never allow such a fund to be created. They hate everything except communists, liberal cowards, illegal immigrants and any democrat cause. Write directly to TRUMP and ask him to have a patriotic American to open a savings account at some conservative credit union that people could make voluntary deposits into.

You are right Maxx, I believe it has already been tried. You would have way more money collected than needed by now. Because people really, really want that wall!!!!

The RINOS in Congress need to stop taking bribes and do their jobs and FUND THE WALL along the entire southern border. Then change the laws to make it a major Felony to illegally cross at any point. Machine guns and alligators are OK with me.

More importantly the Rinos in Congress need to be voted out of office. The GOP is the only political party that allows “traitors” to exist within their ranks because the GOP is only interested in two things; money and power. The GOP should be eliminated by bankrupting it.

Working in the heat (110+*F) isn’t easy. I remember being in the Midland/Odessa West Texas region in the 1980 and 1990s, in 115*F temps out in the middle of nowhere working on oil rigs and fighting thirst and the blinding Sun. Having 100*F temps in the night and trying to sleep in company pick-up trucks while running logging tools.

How about the government puts all the illegal immigrants to work on the wall. Most come from countries that are close to the equator or nothing but deserts. They should be able to take the heat !!!

The real shame is that the wall is necessary. Why are there so many people willing to be law-breakers? Why can’t they organize to make things better in their own countries? The worst of the ‘illegals’ are those who are organizing those vast numbers of people to induce them to want to leave their mother countries in the first place. If the CIA would do their jobs, they could ‘bust’ those organizers. —

Like his proposed military parade, the wall is all about him and little about border security. This crazed egomaniac sees the wall as a memorial to himself at an unconscionable about of taxpayers’ money. The increase in personnel and technical equipment has brought crossovers to a minimum.

AND Tony, do u actually think that Human nature is any differant for Mr. trump, or even YOU? I do NOT know or care what the reasons are behind the fence being built, and yes maybe there is a little ego, I don’t know, BUT the wall is being built and that’s what counts! The man is doing something,and NOT sitting around and talking! YOU MIGHT try “PRAYING” for the President instead of calling names and making accusations you don’t really KNOW are true or false! Hsoem “RESPECT” for the man and ther office he holds, especially when he has done a LOT of what he said he would do! He made promises he has kept you know! COULD “YOU” do a better job, given the magnitude of what need be done and then the opposition from the press etc simply because Mr/ trump is against their new one world govt? COULD YOU? I’d venture a sound gues…NO! Neither could I! So, I will continue to PRAY for and Support Mr. Trump!

Seventeen million is a drop in the bucket as far as money that will be saved by OT having to support 30 people from one illegal bringing their whole family to the USA and not one of them intends to work–just leach off the taxpayers. The wall will save billions in 5 years!!

After the wall is built if an illegal does find a way to get to the top to enter this country illegally a warning shot should be sent in his direction in order to discourage him from jumping to this side of the border, if that doesn’t work maybe further shots need to be sent

Better yet – electrify the top part – strong enough to knock out anyone trying to cross it.- Or, since they would probably find some sort of rubber matting to throw over the top, maybe spikes – too tall, too sharp for that to happen??? And some sort of sensor that would notify someone CLOSE that there was a climber. then bring out the guns, or the sonic booms, or something that would incapacitate them.

There is the Great Wall of China, and the Great Wall of India … now Trump is building the Great Wall of America. All three walls are for keeping invaders out of the country, not keeping people in like the former East German Wall .

We should build The Wall along the east side of California and extend across the northern boundary of that state to keep the liberals trapped in. Then work to transfer the millions from the rest of this great country. Most Americans agree we would have a great nation again.
