The replacement of border fences at Calexico border has been completed according to reports.
Construction workers last week put up the final panel of a new border barrier in Calexico, Calif., a project touted by President Trump as the first part of his promised wall between Mexico and the U.S.
Almost two years into Trump’s presidency, Congress has so far avoided funding a full-fledged border wall. The approximately $1.6 billion in funding that has been awarded to border construction has focused on replacement barrier projects with restrictions about the type of structures that could be built with the money.
What was funded by Congress specifically barred the Trump administration from building any of the actual border wall prototypes as a replacement.
The Border Wall seems to be an area where Trump’s administration has struggled to gain any ground. As we reported Donald Trump could use the army corp of engineers to build the wall.
