The Border Patrol Released drone footage of the “border wall” they have been working on recently. In what seems to stretch for miles, the border wall seems not to be a wall at all. Rather, what it appears to be is a long drawn out fence of immense height.
As the Border Patrol said in a tweet, “CBP hasd 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 project has taken them to Arizona, where in the same area in 2005 another border wall system was built to defend against illegal access to the United States, but failed in its purpose. This new system the CBP has is a “triple layered enforcement zone” which should guarantee its ability to defend against illegal access.
“Todat CBP has a triple-layered enforcement zone which includes an 18′ bollard wall.”
However this is one of many projects in Arizona the CBP plans on tackling this year. While this projected is expect to take around 45 days, other projects include another 40 mile fence in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
Last Friday, construction began in the areas between Columbus and Santa Teresa which hold border access points between US and Mexico. The system is being funded by the declaration of National Emergency initiated by President Trump.
