Border Patrol Releases Drone Footage of 60 Miles of ‘New Wall System,’ Says 450 Miles Will Be Built By 2020

U.S. Customs and Border Protection just released some amazing drone footage of what they are calling a new stretch of border wall.

They have completed over 60 miles of new wall as they replace older less effective barriers.

Funding is coming from Trump national emergency declaration, much to the chagrin of the Democrats. The section of wall near San Luis, Arizona and has an 18-foot steel bollard barrier.

CBP added that they have employed a new triple-layered enforcement zone as they have found this system to be the most effective at stopping illegal entry.

There used to be a single 10-foot fence in this location. The administration has awarded $2.8 billion in contracts for barriers covering 247 miles, with some of that new wall (at least 17 miles) and some replacement.

From Fox News:

The construction is taking place near San Luis and is being carried out with the help of the U.S. 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 Border Patrol said in a tweet.

The agency also tweeted footage showing how a 10-foot wall in the area “failed to impede and deny illegal entries” in 2005.

“Today, CBP has a triple-layered enforcement zone which includes an 18’ bollard wall,” it added.

Elsewhere in Arizona, crews were installing 30-foot steel fencing Friday to replace older barriers next to a border crossing known as Lukeville Port of Entry, which is part of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

Many Arizona residents use the crossing on their way to Rocky Point, a beach destination in Mexico.

Construction is expected to take about 45 days. The U.S. government then plans to tackle other projects in Arizona, including nearly 40 miles of fencing in other parts of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and areas of Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.
